Dune soaring at Aberavon

I was too late and the wind had picked up so dreams of paragliding at Nantymoel went out of the window. Plan B was to try the sand dunes at Aberavon. I have heard of people flying here, but the dunes are also a little small – making it harder to fly. When we got down on the beach, the wind was not quite at the right angle, and was blowing in from a side a bit. Marcus went up and it seemed to be working great though. Before long Greg joined him in the air. After snapping away for a few minutes I went up too. Seeing all the fun made Alex reconsider his decision not to fly. Then there was four of us going up and down the dunes. What a great evening!

Unfortunately no cameras this time so just phone shots. The light was kind of hard, and it was more about the flying, so just a few snaps.
