Always plenty of people out on the beach and quite a few diary entries from Ynyslas too so you won't be on your own if you come down for a kite surf.

Not a lot of wind around at the moment, but it is gorgeous out there!

There does seem to less of a weekend crowd in Aberdyfi, maybe cos of fuel costs? Week days however are much busier, which is nice. as there always seems to be more weekend monday to friday during 9-5 hours. It shows that people are getting their priorities right at last

Hey mNeil you need to look into brewing your own bio diesel. 3 years ago a trip to the coast in my VW van would cost me ¨£45 (250 miles). Now it costs me about ¨£8 for the same trip

hi Crezzee
give me a link to this please; would have to check the suitability for the 2.7 sprinter engine first lest it became a very expensive experiment. Dave used to put veg oil in his transit till it ruined the diesel pump but worth a look all the same.
regards neil

Yeah veg oil not always a good idea in some engines, everything you need to know is in this forum:

http://www.vegetableoildiesel.co.uk/forum/index.php />
It may look complicated at first but plenty of experienced chaps on the site always willing to help.

By the way vansurf is open to anyone, not just Fatshady.
