Tell me about Harrington Marina
« on: February 02, 2009, 22:53:08 »
I have my nephew coming up at half term and want to teach him kite landboarding. I have heard you guys talk about Harrington marina. I've had a look but the tide was well in. Do you mean the sand or the large grassed area?

The sand has shifted at Allonby and its not so reliable as it was 3 or 4 years ago, so any tips would be welcome.

Thanks for that , I don't really do any landboading anymore (I'm too old), I sold my MBS board to VW Andy after only about 30 mins use last year. Kind of regreting it now :'(. My nephew has a board and a 2m kite. I'd like to fast track him to depower, and then onto the water by easter. Thats the plan anyway.

I'll get in touch when we are going down. We have to book the wind and the weather first though.

Too old??  There's a thread on the Flexi forum at the moment from someone taking up boarding at 46!

Now I'm too old for boarding - I need to sit down!

Just about if your the only one there and the wind is right you can get some good runs.
