It doesn’t snow every day…….. but today it did!

It’s true, we lead a hard life up here at surfstore… Working every day to make sure you get your orders on time. Toiling hard to make certain we can get through the harsh northern winters, but the truth is that, from a climatic point of view, we don’t get a lot of snow. Certainly it’s chilly, but usually wet, so today we stared at the fresh falls of snow from the office window with surprise. By three we decided something had to be done about the matter!

Pump up that 10m 555 that’s on the second hand for sale list (nice kite actually) get the demo nobile snowkiteboard, and get a few runs in. The lower end of the lake had frozen, and although it looked tempting to do some runs across the ice, caution seemed like a better idea, even if we had managed to get a barrel of brandy around Fly, the Surfstore pooch’s neck!

Snow kiting seems pretty easy, small kite and lots of upwind ability, but I definately think that there is a good potential for jump related casualty visits.
