Winter Speed Windsurf Session

Sorry for the lack of updates here lately but it’s just been the usual run of the mill stuff lately. Training, working, and running around as usual. We did spend a day at the weekend driving to Swansea and back to look at a van, but we didn’t like what we saw so didn’t buy it. Other...

Braving Storm Barbara – Windsurfing and Biking

What a day that was! There has been very little wind for what seems like ages. Very little apart from the mad, short-lived and very destructive squall that we had back in November.
