Hello
As you know, Berck is one of the big festivals in Europe and the first of the season in the beginning of April
I'll be there with 15 fliers from Paris, and most of them fly rev's

Tell me who's coming...
and we'll try to catch up some wind together -
there is no security problems 'cause it's allowed to fly where ever it's not a reserved area (you just have to make shure to not hurt anybody when playing with the croud)

i also try to come to the 20th anniversary - see you

Bonjour Alex

peut-Ítre
cligne de l'oeil ;)

I am definitely too inexperienced to fly near/over any crowds.
I'll probably take more photos than flying, unless if I find a quieter spot.

voyez-vous

It's not the size of your Rev.. its how you use it.
Seven days without flying a Rev makes one weak.

At the Berck festival time I have seen there sun, rain, light wind to strong wind with temperatures varying from cool to warm.
So plan for everything except snow and ice.

John I seem to remember snow a few years back!

John is right, pack for everything, if you are there for a few days you will probably see some sun. I have worn shorts in Berck (not a pretty sight) every year since 1991. Still, I was b****y cold most of the time!

When I went to Berck last year, I was running around with no shirt on the first full day, and bundled to the gills with frost on the sand during the last day.

Bring layers, be ready for anything. ;)

Thanks for all of your tips guys.

Really hoping for some clean non flukey wind on the spacious beach to try out my new B-series (due this week) :wub:
(we do not have very kind wind here in UK at the moment).

Hello, does this mean we might get a chance to see LungTa fly ? :)

Is there a schedule for each days flying we can see once we arrive ?
So many treats to look forward too.

Hi, that is so cool. I see what you mean about the clothing.
Thanks for sharing, I had not seen those before.

I'm definitely gonna need the B-series vented in those winds!

The night flying during fireworks is crazy :w00t:
