Greetings from the South of England!
Feb 4th, 2021 at 8:35am
 
Hello people of this excellent forum.

I'm a slinger, sling maker and history enthusiast. I've been slinging for roughly three years, but I only recently found this forum. Then I thought it would be good to make an account so I could actually participate.

So here I am!

We’d love to see photos of some of your work.

... resizing photos is also part of the initiation process Grin

I'm just north of Brighton.

I think my favourite slinging beach is probably Birling Gap; the flints are near perfect and there are some great rocks just out in the water that make for good targets.

Although Tide Mills is also a good one.

Welcome from Texas! Always glad to have a new member! You guys with your pebble beaches. I am so jealous every time I see a picture of one.

The fact that you guys also have the best rock music in the world is just an added benefit.  Wink
