dissapointing day off






A disappointing day off



On 15th June 2010, I used the Yumping.co.uk website to enquire about wakeboarding and kitesurfing in Kent. Had a couple of companies come back to me saying that they could get us a lesson for the weekend of 26th/27th June?

 



One company contacted me immediately and offered up a lesson time as they were rapidly filling up but I wasn’t able to confirm as I needed to check it was convenient.



The other company seemed to be more tailored and the reply went-

“Sure we can get you and another in for the weekend of 26/27 June! I just need a mobile number to put you into the diary!”

We left Kent at about 4.20pm yesterday and it wasn’t the fact that England had gone out of the world cup or that it had been a quieter weekend for people viewing the exhibition or the text from friends surfing perfect waves in North Devon. It would have been helpful if Kent kite surfing (KKS) had called or responded to our emails. We came up with several abbreviations for KKS and our thoughts on the situation and thought we’d not waste the webspace.

So with the time which we would have spent on the water, we managed to take some photo’s….

“day off"




 The exhibition….week one.




Although the weather outside was pretty awful it did dampen the visitors spirits. I’d spent Saturday afternoon doing some public relation work in Whitstable. I’d managed to talk to some really excited and interested parties and a few people who couldn’t make it as they had travelled down from London on the Biennale Bus and were heading back before 6pm..




 






There was a great buzz about town and this carried on long into the evening. Our visitors came from far and wide; one couple coming from South Africa and another gentleman had spent 24 hours travelling from Galway, Ireland. We had some lovely and lively locals attended and most viewers were able to comment on their ideal “day off” and offered up invites to join then on a future day out and day in! (I’ll post some of the picture cards up over the next week or so).







A big thank you to all my sponsors and everyone who managed to brave the weather as it was great to see you.



Looking forward to next weekend as better weathers on its way!

days off in devon



days off in devon

bank holiday, sat in traffic for five hours, passed a crash or two en route to devon. Followed the fastest caravan ever hitting speeds of 65mph on A roads.... yeah law breaking caravan drivers....

the weekend had it all, good surf, great weather and plenty of visual treats.

We took a walk around morte point and saw two seals, a variety of seabirds and suicidal sheep.


I wish I had booked the whole week off as the surf was pumping, the sun was booked in for half term and i hear its barbeque season.

roll on the next bank holiday
