Gav and Claire learn to Kitesurf!


5 November 2017

Very long day, leaving in the dark and driving through the rain on the M6. Everything has run smoothly though, even me driving on the right hand side of the road. A few clouds but nice and warm, watching the kite surfers with a beer finally!

So, the first proper update. We've managed to stumble upon a great little flat in what otherwise seems to be a barren country, a diamond in the rough.... The landscape is pretty amazing but there doesn't seem to be much in the way of culture, luckily that's not why we came here. Yesterday was the first day of lessons in the tidal 'lagoon', a huge stretch of water next to the sea no deeper than your waist in which to practice, so perfect for us. Both Claire and I had some great wipeouts getting used to the kite (no boarding yet), sadly I didn't have the GoPro! Today we went for a surf this morning before the second lesson this afternoon. Sadly the wind completely dropped and so we couldn't get out, we'll have the lesson another day. I did manage to dress up in a suicide vest (see pic) and we managed to get home early for drinks a sunset (again see pics). Apparently tomorrow there will be no wind, so we will head to the other side of the island, where the surf is meant to best :) x
