Kitesurfing & Cable

April 28, 2011

Hello!

So, we’ve been hitting the cable (literally) but now have some wind… woop, woop!! We’re still running Kitesurfkings private sessions at the cable (and still just out of love), our next private session is an evening one 18.30 to 20.00. We’ve hooked up an even sweeter deal for you lovely people so you now just have to pay £20 including your online discount and including your board hire for the session. Here are a few pics and bits from yesterday’s cable session, scroll down if you’re only interested in kitesurfing. Umm, kitesurfing, how nice it is to have wind!

Please do not talk to the operator!

Last night’s Kitesurfkings cable session was a laugh, everyone did really well and there were some inspirational moves from those who were trying the cable for the first time. One of the guys, Fabio, asked me not to post any pics of him riding but Fabio you had some styles dude; on one board start Fabio span the board 180, which he says was on accident but we still give you the points Fabio.

Nice carve turn... sure this is ur first time?

Two more Kitesurfkings students were there riding the cable for the first time and we had them up and riding in no time, Kevin ended up having sweeter turns than anyone else there! Go Kevin! Fortue attempted some pop 180’s, hats off to you Fortue, you’ll nail um next time.

Pop 180' caught on camera

Last two pics… one classic slider mishap and to be kind one slider success, both by Jeff.

Slider success!

Oops! Less successful slider attempt!

There is no way I could not post this last pic from yesterday’s cable session, Jeff said it didn’t hurt and I believe him as the slider really doesn’t cause much damage; I think I might have pulled something though through laughing so hard!

Cable, cable, cable… kitesurfing, yeah baby! We’re loving the cable but when there’s an opportunity to kitesurf there is no competition. There has been some lovely weather recently and although we’ve not been able to kitesurf I think everyone has been enjoying it but enough’s enough, it really is time for some good wind. During the light wind days we’ve been having a lot of fun kite landboarding and powerkiting but still always dreaming of getting into the water for a good kitesurfing session.

Finally we have wind and it looks like it’s here to stay, well, for a week at least! We’re loading up the minibus and going kitesurfing along the coast and anyone’s welcome to come along. If you’re a beginner then you need to book lessons in (call me directly on 07878 399 419 to do this) and if you’re already kiting then why not arrange to hook up and have a good old kitesurfing session with us (contact us about this via the Kitesurfkings Facebook page).

The wind forecast shows solid wind for the next 7 days and the likelihood of more to follow, low tides this week are all afternoon and running into evenings next week. We teach until sunset on a low tide and kite any old time regardless of tides.
