Spring Skies at Ynyslas

It was such a nice day yesterday but I was stuck at work. So, come the evening I couldn’t resist walking to Scouts rather than getting in the car. So, here’s a couple of photos from the beach last night. Lovely Spring Skies. Things weren’t looking too shabby in the garden at sunrise either – as...

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...

Updating the Borth & Ynyslas Weather Station

I’ve been running a weather station here in Ynyslas for a number of years now. I initially installed the weather station in 2005 at the request of a number of kite-surfers and windsurfers from the Midlands. They all used to make regular trips to the coast here but sometimes their trips would be wasted as...

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...

Monster Squall

The Aberystwyth area has yet again has made it to the National News thanks to the weather. Yesterday was a typical Autumnal day here. Grey, showery and fairly windy. Nothing unusual, leaves were falling from the trees, the sea was a little rough and a raincoat was recommended. That was until around about 10:30 when and...

Summer Sea Birds

After a few weeks of fairly miserable weather, and a horrible bike ride on Sunday morning in constant rain and murk, the weather took a turn for the better yesterday. An amazing contrast from cold, grey and wet to glorious sunshine and scorching temperatures. It reached 24.3ºC yesterday according to the Borth & Ynyslas Weather...

Training, Racing and Recreation Balance

You may have noticed that although I’ve still be fairly active, cycling, running around the coast path and such like, I haven’t been posting about any proper training and certainly nothing about any races. This is all due to the fact that I’ve had a few niggling injuries. Injuries Last year it was plantar fasciitis,...

SUP Surfing, a Break in the Weather & Orchids

The amazing weather we’ve been having has finally changed and blue skies have been replaced by grey this morning on the beach. It’s still warm at 15ºC throughout the night, and yesterday we reached a maximum of 26.3ºC, the hottest temperature of the year so far. There was a little bit of swell too yesterday...

My Kind of Day

The half-term continues and amazingly the weather continues to impress too. Further east in the country people are complaining of the cold, wet, miserable weather, but here in the west it has been gorgeous for ages now. Sunshine from 4 am until the sun sets at around 9:30pm and temperatures up into the 20’s everyday. Wind...

More Sunshine and More Wind

Another perfect day here in Ynyslas. More Sunshine and More wind. There were some lovely views over the estuary from on top of the dunes first thing. When this was taken there was barely a breath of wind. That soon changed though whilst I was doing a hard VO2Max Interval session on the turbo trainer....
