A busy phone line & texting session this morning led to a large possy of South Devon Kitesurfers exploding onto the St. Ives Bay coastline today.

                                                                                   Magic seaweed predicting 8ft Swells, high temperatures,25knots SW winds & its November. Loads of excuses to load the Edge van with toys, collect Ezra & North Rep Callum Edge (British Champion) from the secret car park at Clyst St. George & head west. Starbucks cafe we meet up with Andy(beef Farmer), Gibbo who has taken the day off, Mikey & Andy Hills (dre). ‘Site’ was the best bet & it just got better all day with building tide the swell cleaned out & wind just got stronger. Old time friend & employee- Alex Hapgood called the shots on ‘site’ & hit the lips backside while Callum realised there was better kites than the vegas in the North quiver for going upwind! Dre was out on his trusty 2007 Rebel, Gibbo boosted huge airs & kite loops while Ezra enjoyed decent waves on the evo. Paignton Phil was ripping on his new North Wam & we could’nt get him off the water when it was time to go! Andy went down in size kite all day ending up on the 7mtr rebel. Meanwhile Richard Sills (yes- surfing legend), Dom Moore & Pasty found their peace further upwind of the main break. While a dolphin cleared the front of Mikey’s board, plenty of seal sea life was to be seen along with international riders- Tom Court & Luke Whiteside out on bindings!

A superb trip with plenty of van gossip during the journey, I think Eric has sorted the Neo for 2011 while Callum has decided he is winning a gold medal at the Olympics & we all think we should kite round the UK next year!!! If you have’nt already noticed it- the kite that Eric is using was a new 2011 North Fuze!!!!
