Saturday 17th December - The day the snow arrived!

We made the effort to get up the Brecon Beacons on Saturday 17th December, fueled by the weather forecasts for our 1st snowfall of the winter so far. We arrived to find only a small amount of snow covering the lower areas near the carpark.

We met a few other keen kitesurfers eager to try the snow but as the snow cover looked so bad they headed off back to the coast, we decided to walk the dog up the mountain anyway and once up higher were pleasantly surprised to find plenty of depth to the fresh snow.
We then had to hike back to the van to get the kites and boards etc and once again trek back to the top - it was worth it though!
We had a few hours playing in pretty strong winds on the Epic Renegade 7m kite before we packed up to head back the 45mins to Porthcawl.
Rest Bay greeted us with a nice strong cross-shore wind and a super nice 3-4ft wave.We all had one of the best sessions i can remeber with the sun slowly setting on an amazing day here in S.Wales.
As it happened we had the Blast Xmas Bash that evening so by 7.30pm we were out with good freinds in the local pub for a well earned meal and one or two drink's too!
All in all, an amazing day!
