    Rya course online ??

    Hi Matthew, I dont think so, you have to attend a course as its practical and theory.

    Like crammy says, you won't get a trip for less than 250 except may be on ebay, but there are some decent new packages about (board and bindings) for a bit more, not necessarily a trip but similar boards, find one you like then check out the model on you tube, most have a demo video for them, also the size depends on your height and weight.....

    Liquid Force range of boards are good. The 'Trip' is a good all round board for any level of boarder, very forgiving for learners but with enough pop to satisfy the more experienced.

    We always used a folding anchor (wrapped in an old towel and stowed in the storage bucket) in all sorts of sea conditions, decent ones available from about £15 upwards.

    tenby & caldy island

    Hi John I think it costs £20 to day launch at Lydstep and you need RYA Check this out http://www.haven.com/parks/south-wales/lydstep-beach/ at the bottom of the page. If you want a really nice camp site, with its own beach accessible by cliff path, stunning views I recommend the site we have our van on at Trevayne Farm www.trevaynefarm.co.uk, I've beengoing there all my life (I'm over 50 ) and still love it.

    Cool. I will. Didn't mean to sound harsh, but I spent 2 years trying to get Amroth re-opened and it was really frustrating and like I said although we use our boat down there now, would still much rather be out on a ski there.

    tenby & caldy island

    Over the years I have made many posts regarding Jet skiing in the Tenby area and how we tried very hard to keep our regular launch open, with the help of the PWP and the RYA to no avail. It is a stunning part of our country and I feel privileged that I got to enjoy 15 years of launching our ski's there, spending time on remote beaches inaccessible by land at high tide. Unfortunately a small number of narrow minded and irresponsible jet skiers managed to spoil it for the majority of us.
