Wouldn't say Immense, but looked good.

I was only there 45 mins and that was long enough.

It was totally packed there, never seen New Brighton so busy.

The commentator was a bit weird though:

"Kite flyers are generally nice people, approachable and friendly"

"you can buy any kite from a toy shop, but it won't be as good as buying one from a proper kite shop"
