The masses can f**k off! Just left the beach and it's covered in empty beer/water bottles and disposable bbq's. Maybe we should get togther with the council and ban the public from beaches until they learn to tidy up after themselves.

Has kitesurfing been banned anywhere because of an accident or just the threat of an accident been enough?

Maybe as the kiitesurfing industry matures then the kite companys may realise that importers aren't neccessary, with out them higher margins for themselves and the retailers would be achieved.

It's neither of them two, I just had a look on the halfords website and it's not on there. On the side of the box it said there would be enough power to pump five camping mattresses on one charge. I'll have another look tomorrow after work.

Halfords battery pumps

In halfords yesterday saw a battery powered inflator. It's designed for camping mattresses and looks up to the job and is only fifteen quid. Has anyone tried these yet?
