Winter Speed Windsurf Session

Sorry for the lack of updates here lately but it’s just been the usual run of the mill stuff lately. Training, working, and running around as usual. We did spend a day at the weekend driving to Swansea and back to look at a van, but we didn’t like what we saw so didn’t buy it. Other...

Another Green Training Week

Thought I’d update you on the fact that my second full week of training with a new training plan was a successful one. Once again all the planned sessions in my training week were coloured green.

A Mellow Day at Ynyslas

Saturday was fairly grey and dreary this weekend. That didn’t stop me from getting out on the water for a mellow day at Ynyslas though.

Cross Biking in the Hills of Mid West Wales

I like to do my best to fill the time between Christmas and New Year with activities and this year the weather seems to have been helping. Yesterday was cloudy and cold but dry at least. After checking the surf which was good I had to choose between surfing, cross biking, surf-skiing or something else....

Boxing Day Windsurf with Mast Mount for GoPro

My Christmas Day windsurf wasn’t great as I had too small a sail Boxing day was perfect though. I managed to get out and give my new Mast Mount for a GoPro camera a trial in perfect conditions. It was a glorious day with wall to wall sunshine and a decent 25-30 knot WNW wind blowing. The...

Braving Storm Barbara – Windsurfing and Biking

What a day that was! There has been very little wind for what seems like ages. Very little apart from the mad, short-lived and very destructive squall that we had back in November. The forecast for the run up to Christmas was looking good wind-wise though so I was chomping at the bit and ready to...
