Sat 23rd - Something for the weekend?
Looks like a good chance of you know what for the weekend looking at the forecast, with a fresher breeze for Sunday.
Big Spring Tides (Sat High 15:19 6.2) so could well be choppy over high tide.
This past week out here in Serre Chevalier temps have been in low to mid 30's though the weather spectacularly broke down late on Thursday into Friday with a massive storm. And it was the subsequent wet weather that caused so much carnage on Friday's TDF stage and could well be an issue today.
Riding / hiking has been great mixing it up with the road and mountain bikes as well as hiking.
Have been updating the mountain blog here plus the Cam is on so you can see what the weather is like!
Exercising Les Bitches up to the Galibier :)
Be safe !
Was talking about pros and cons of strapped / strapless and as an ex windsurfer who played around in the waves I'm sort of used to straps, but have been riding more and more with back foot out and have been thinking of going strapless, then someone said "Robby Nash" rides straps, so if he's happy then why should I worry........
Love this classic South Coast photo from Howard Kearley from Tuesday
So what's been happening this past month or so?
Steve Sinnhuber who many will know is now up and running with his RRD Kite School, more here at www.learntokitesurf.co.uk
Progression Sports have released a Self Rescue Video Set (FREE) to promote better safety, and take it from me as one who had some infamous "KiteMares" starting out, as I was never taught self rescue and pack down drills - more detail here.
And Seasprite Sports have a great new brand: Silver-Surf which comprises some very cool (according to my daughters) jewellery. Silver-Surf only uses 925 Sterling Silver, marine grade cord and Swarovski Elements to create some very sweet items of surf / mountain themed jewellery.
And you can get 20% off any piece by entering the discount code AnotherHardDay at www.silver-surf.com
Video below shows what it's like going past the pier!
