Lo m8,
I'm new to beachcasting as well, and I could with some help with casting too. I found this fishing site http://www.surfcaster.de/Iz_Seiten01/video.html it's german but I was only interested in the casting video clips. I'm not suggesting you can learn casting from them but you might find them interesting. You need the quicktime viewer to watch them but you can get that on the site. When u get to the page scroll down to see the videos. Wish I could cast like these lads.

Nice one Melarkie, vids a bit grainy but got the gist of it , I've been practising down the beach without bait on and like you seem to have my reel (Mag ) tuned so the nests are in the past now its as much about reel settings ,body balance bit like a golf swing ,technique you can view, read, or have tuition but like all things its practice makes perfect
