summer is here again at last

Monday, May 20th, 2013

 Well summer looks like its here again at last and my time out on the sup has increased from a few hours per month to a few sessions per week again. It’s easy to forget how enjoyable it is to be out on the water paddling like a lunatic for a few hours. Aberdeenshire has a great variety of spots as well from nice surf breaks to flat water on rivers, estuaries or lagoons so whatever your passion is on the sup we have it all. It also makes a change to be able to go out without a full wetsuit when flat water paddling without overheating when the temperature is in the double figures. Anyway here’s a few photos from last weekend where a few newcomers to the sport were having a go. 

 

November sessions

Monday, November 21st, 2011

Who’d have thought that some of the best sessions would be in late November this year the summer has been pretty dire for kiting really, either way too much wind or barely enough The past three days have been perfect for all kite sports in Cruden Bay and has been a reminder as to what kiting is all about. Good times.

Loch Ness challenge 2012

Monday, October 31st, 2011

Over the past few months after getting to grips with the paddleboard I thought it might be a good idea to set myself a challenge for next year. I’ve decided to spend a day (or two) paddling from Fort Augustus to Inverness on the SUP. I know a few people that are keen to do it on kayaks as well so hopefully it’ll be a great wee trip. If anyone fancies taking part give me a shout.

Session tomorrow @ Cruden bay beach

Friday, August 12th, 2011

The forecast is looking good for a session tomorrow evening at Cruden bay. 15mph wind and a bit of sunshine. I’ll have small kites with me for anyone that wants to try out a bit of kiting for the first time and there’ll be a BBQ as well (bring your own food and beer).

Good news the ladies bridge will hopefully be open again at last sometime next week so access to the beach will be easier. No more trekking across the golf course or wading through the river.

Spending a lot of time on the beach always provides great photo opertunities. Here’s a few taken when the wind dropped off and stopped the kiting for the day.

Happy new year

Whatever kite sport you’re into I hope we get a good year for us all. A year of big airs, high speeds and big grims.

See you on the beach
