Hi folks, I am potentially spending a week near Pembrey in Waels Wales towards the end of October.

Wondered if anyone had flown there and if it was a good spot.

If it is rubbish I will leave the kites at home, NOT.

Cheers,

Chris.

Pembry is popular with power kiters, although you need a permit/membership from the local sailing club for traction. I don't think any such restrictions apply for a bit of static flying though, and it's a massive place so there should be lots of clean wind!

... and to avoid having your kites burnt you should call it Cefn Sidan rather than Pembrey beach ;)

In case we visit, could you spell that out phonetically for us? Else the kites could still be burned for an obvious English transliteration :kid_smartass:

Have you ever tried writing Welsh phonetically - there just aren't the keys for that sort of clearing your throat sound? Besides that I am not a Welsh speaker, so wouldn't presume to try and explain anything of the language that I couldn't find out from my mate Google.

As I recall from Junior School in Cardiff Welsh 'is' phonetic with only a few oddities such as dd ch. The accent is another thing....

Point taken Jeremy, have lined my kite bag with asbestos and will be carrying a fire extinguisher just in case.

Well I have to admit the conditions got the better of me on Saturday but I did not disgrace the FS brand.

And no Space Cake :(
