Haha, Yeh that's what actually did it, did a loop but didn't re-direct enough and pendulumed under the kite and it fell out the sky and just got tension in lines about a meter from water and them BOOM!! It blew the valve away from the bladder so it's only a new bladder job, not a bust LE!! Coulda been worse! Gotta thank marky for the drag back in, woulda died otherwise!

Yeah was ok, wasn't as much ooomph as yesterday and proper cold!!!

Can't wait for a 7m sesh on the flat water, looooooops!!

Rumours have it that there has been a load of fishing nets and lines with hooks being placed in the kite area... What with that and the oil slicks and all the sewage /diesel kicking around I think I will be heading to skeggy or fraisthorpe this weekend..... Lagoons have vanished at Clee since all the winter storms anyhow!!
Shame the tides are wrong too!!! It's far too cold too!!

Hi there -0

Visiting the area this week. In the past I have gone out at Cleethorpes when visiting.

What do people recomend for this weekend (Saturday pm probably)?

Should I try Skegness?

Would be great to meet the local riders.

High tide is 10.30 tomorrow so there should be plenty of water till 2ish after that it will be a bit of a walk but well worth it
