I'm going to try and make it out today at SB but I have a feeling that Iona might be better option for waves.

Pretty gusty and SW so I waited patiently for sandbars then scored the last hour of the evening shift. Steady WSW 18-20 with the usual Spanish Banks chop. Good on 12m + surfboard with 4 other kiters.

Why is the direction so wrong? It was South West.

Wind on the beach was a bit nasty but on the water it was pretty decent but a bit gusty in close.

Scored a 3 hour session on 9m + SB from 2:45-5:45.

Wind was up and down, waves were small but fun. The wind/wave angle was giving me trouble with board spins today, could barely land any.

So nice to see the sun out, I don't think I've seen it since I left Tenerife.
