Hey, no doubt about it I live in Exmouth! And I seem to be the only guy that flies here. Due to the weather and visiting Nottingham last week I have not been around much. Yesterday and today I was the only kite flier around.

This is my main field. The Imperial Recreation Ground, at Exmouth.

p.s. slightly off topic. Portsmouth Festival this year. Should be a large Rev mega team. Come and see how we get it wrong. I sure there will be space for a few add hoc flying sessions.

Portsmouth 2007, pics of TFS doing what they love to do - see while the pics are still available, as I am going to have to free up space for this years festival pictures soon:

the adhoc flying session Stephen mentioned picture can be viewed here (5th picture down):

http://www.oxygene.d...itefest0732.htm

I personally love the Crazy Drivers shot.

Back on topic... am really trying to find a decent flying site which has clean wind and good space.
I would love to get to a beach but that is a bit far for the summer evenings.

Is it very slopey at Barbury castle Wilts. ?
I know they use Middle Wallop for Power kiting but is it open for general kite use ???

Well, there is a slope to get up there - but that is what cars are for ;) . Photos here http://www.revkites....amp;#entry13866

Not that I am aware of. Danebury closest I believe, but ISTBC

My favourite spot is the Uffington White Horse in Oxfordshire - about a 20 mile drive from home. Been flying this & that there for nearly 20 years, and it was here I had my first go of a Rev, courtesy of a visiting strager - never seen him again, but thank you wherever you are!

Took this panorama once chilled evening last summer during an after-work fly

There's also some ropey self-filmed video here...

http://antsnest.blip.tv/file/367622/

Just realised that's from 2 years ago - and only a month or so after getting it - I think I've got steadily worse since then!

You get a good assortment of flyers at the weekend, but mostly families with single liners.

GLAD TO HELP :)

The shower block was spottless clean,modern, and the laundry room also.No litter blowing round everywher,electonic card entry to the site area,all the important stuff was 110%.
A few people on a review site i read about the site, complained about RAF Woodvale and the aircraft noise.Mostly the Police Helicoptor as its based ther ,but it never bothered us at all.

Hope ya have a good time Barry.I love that stretch of coastline.Its one of the best kept secrets i know.

All you Ainsdale beach flyers
could one of you post a link to google maps or something similar (maybe a postcode) to show where at ainsdale you fly your revs
hoping to go up there next saturday and sunday and would hate to go to the wrong place and maybe miss some of you if youre there
can anyone tell me if you can park on the beach
Thanks to all of you
