Soma Bay once again delivered the goods. We had an absolutely cracking week, in a much quieter than normal Soma Bay. Unfortunately it appears that many people are steering clear of Egypt due to what’s been happening. All we can say is that if you want a great kite club and a brilliant Hotel go and let Stefan and his team spoil you at The Breakers.
So 7 days out of 7 with wind. We had it all, cranking small kite weather and blissful 12m learning breezes. The effort on the water was inspiring. Special mentions must go to: Kevin, the Animal, battled through a few ailments, to produce some stunning riding and now needs a container just to carry around all his tricks – just watch out Barcelona, there’ll be some serious wanging going down. Adam arrived a happy kiter and went home a smiling legend. He set a new bench mark for what you can achieve through consolidation, and went home with a veritable box of tricks to show off back in Lancing. Jen was lucky enough to “have access” to Edwin’s 7m and as a result nailed toeside and discovered the joys of voluntary airtime – brilliant. Edwin claimed the chair of air with some massive boosts and kept us entertained with some overpowered c-kite skim boarding.
