I saw this recently and I would have thought the beginners area was right slap bang in the middle of the pond, or closer to the beach even

Maybe they should have put something on there to say that kiters are allowed out of the northern part of the pond and that you can actually kite the whole length? Oh well, not many Euros this year anyway I guess.

Cross onshore in the marked beginner zone, looks correct to me, power line potential if you propose the middle of the pond ,and the jumpers landing zone,

sorry, it was a joke. Often you have beginners in the middle of the pond because they think its easier and safer, but as you say they are near the beach, people, and power lines. If they are in the marked area now there less kiters with more space if things go wrong. Its good to see that someone put up a sign, and hopefully people notice it.

good point about 'Warnboro'. Its Warnbro, yet on the train announcements its "Warnbra".

I thought there was some sarcasm in this one!
Any you are right, stay the Fk out of the pond until you can obviously stay up wind, retrieve your own board and bear downwind to avoid other people quickly.

I did notice it being alot quieter last time i popped down (3 weeks ago). What COVID has kept away the Water Corp and Salmonella will bring back in!

Tough to join a rotation when you're +15m up in the air
