Wind............ less

We've had a bit of spell now of light to no wind days but with awesome weather especially for this time of the year.
Many of the local kitesurfers are pulling thier hair out and driving up and down the M4 desperately hunting the slightest whiff of a sea breeze.
Laura, loving the outdoors..kite or bike it doesnt matter to her!

However we've been making the most of the beautiful warm sunny conditions and been clocking up the miles on the MTB's and also venturing further afeild on the SUP's. Mountain Biking was one of my main sports along with surfing before I discovered Kitesurfing 11 years ago so it's a great feeling to be back in the saddle and once again hitting the amazing trails around Afan Argoed....the UK mecca and one the top ten in the World apparantly.
Sarah...rock slab hopping!

We paddled out to the Fairy Buoy.....flipping hard paddle back to the coast against the tide though! Fantastic to see the coast from so far out. Ive kited out there many times but it's difficult to really get up close and have a good look like we could on the SUP's.
When the winds eventually hit at least we will be refreshed and fit for it!

Blast Kiteboarding's 1st Video effort!

Not terribly good but quickly put this together from the other day at Rest Bay Porthcawl, deffinately got the bug now and cant wait till the next session!!

The girls are taking over!

It seems we are teaching more and more girls in the past year or so, maybe because we have two female qualified instructors or maybe there are just a whole new breed of adrenaline addicted girls out there?
Whatever the reason it's great to see so many taking up the sport and gracing our beaches.

Even our Portugal trip is pretty much 50-50 female, pretty impressive when you consider over the two weeks there are over 30 people going this year!

We will definately be running a Girls W/End this summer once again and hope to see you all there!

What an epic past few days we have had.......

At last the winds came back to grace our shores once's been way to long. The sun was left behind but we simply didnt was small kite weather and there were waves.

We got the chance to try some of the new kit we have been desperate to try for so long inc. Best Kahoona V3's, JN Prima Donna's, Mutiny, Wainman, Fluid ATV's and ofcourse the Genetrix Origin v2

We are now back to settled fine weather with the sun back warmer than ever with a real nice swell pushing in too.
Tomorrow is SUP day!
