Any Bristol (UK) kitesurfers out there that would like some newbieish kiting company? Happy to share equipment and lifts. PM me. Ted

I'll be Bristol based again from May.

Go over to Porthcawl/Aberavon mostly, though if the tide times are right will head over to Weston-super-Mare (muddy)...

Stay in touch via here and we'll probably meet on a beach in Wales

They call me Girlsname (I think it is something to do with the surname...)

I'm in Bath most weekends and thinking about starting west at least one day a week. You're not too far away and on the route(ish). Up for the Porthcawl meet next weekend?

G'Day John & David

I'm ashamed to say that I haven't been to Porthcawl/Aberavon yet but it's sounds fun. I tend to go down to Saunton. If you e-mail me your contact numbers (train(at)gn.apc.org) and I'll contact you at the end of the week. I happy to share petrol/liftsand equipment.

All the best.

Hi All,

Just to let you know there's about 10 of us Studying at Bristol who kite - plus another 10 or so who want to learn. I informally run the club alongside the windsurfers. I also know another couple of young guys who kite but arn't students.

Just drop me an email at ws2732@bris.ac.uk and i'll forward anything to the guys and girls to see if anyones interested - my bloody backs still screwed, so won't be doing much except take pictures until at least march!

Cheers

Will
