In our area of S Wales we're blessed with many slopes facing most directions but, we are short on slopes facing south and south east. Last Sunday, Mark and Chris were going to fly the SE slope of The Garth, at the southern end of the A470 but, Big Phil and myself decided to try a slope closer to home, in fact only a 15 minute drive from my house, and 5 minutes for Phil, and a slope we haven't tried before as we rarely get a south easterly.
So Phil and I parked up and marched up to the slope. The wind was very light to begin with so we decided to chuck up the Wildthing and Weasel, stooging around for a while until the wind picked up enough to throw up the mouldies, a Banana and a Whisper.
The flying was no great shakes that day due to the light breeze and, we only managed a couple of hours as our fingers were becoming numb with the cold again. But that slope certainly has potential when an easterly or south east blows.
Here is a clip of Phil launching his Speedo.
