We live where we do because it’s one of the windiest places we know of – perfect for windsurfing.

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...

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...

Tandem Surfing

Seeing as my Mum was worried that I didn’t do anything strenuous on Saturday morning – other than moth trapping, beekeeping and geocaching – I thought I’d better make up for it. Windsurfing I did get out windsurfing in the estuary on Saturday afternoon. The wind was a little flukey but was gusting up to 28 knots....

Busy School Holidays – Windsurfing, Pokémon and a Courgette Glut

Out and Back through the Whitewater

Sunday turned out to be a nice bright, windy day. Too windy to put the roof on the new lean-to. So, after a hard turbo trainer and srun session it was off to the beach for some windsurfing. The 20-25 knot wind was a little marginal for my 5.7m sail and 85 litre wave board. There...

Windsurfing with the Lurgy

Grrr… I’ve got some kind of lurgy. Headache, sore throat and generally feeling ‘bleurgh.’ Not ideal for an upcoming first attempt at a Half ironman distance race, but there’s little I can do about that. I have therefore ceased what little training I was doing to see if I can kick it. It didn’t stop me...

Full on Friday

That was a good day, especially as it was only Friday and not even the weekend. Up early as usual after a poor nights sleep for an hour or so of work on the computer and then off for a fairly hard 70 minute run from home. It shouldn’t have been that hard as it wasn’t...
