Anybody know of a good slope in the Franskraal area? We're going there for Easter weekend and I might be able to sneak a wing along.

I've had luck flying down at the dunes on the beach (10-15min walk from the parking lot - They get higher the further out you go). If you're up for a little drive then there is a really nice gentle slope just before you reach the light house at danger point in Gansbaai. Its so beautiful that it's worth drive even if you can't fly I can point out the locations on google maps or give you the co-ords if you want.

I've been doing some work in PE lately as well. Maybe you could show me a local slope or two when I have some free time?

Thanks, sounds like a plan. Can you reach the light house from Gansbaai side? I seem to remember you need 4x4 if you go from the Franskraal side.

You're right about the 4x4 if you stick to the coast.

Head back on the main road towards Gaansbaai and take the Danger Point turn off and follow that down to the coast. Once you get to the T junction turn right towards the lighthouse.

Let us know how it goes!

Black Eagle PSS Festival date change

Due to a slight oversight we are having to revert to an earlier date for the festival, so date is now the 20-21st Jun 2015
