Scorchio Surf Ski

Yesterday was the hottest day of the year so far according to the Borth & Ynyslas Weather Station at 24.8ºC. We broke that today though with 26.7ºC – scorcher! It’s not a record for the month of May in Wales, but it’s not far off. It was such a nice day that I just had to go for a surf ski paddle.

I headed along the beach towards the estuary and then up the estuary into a brisk Easterly wind. At least that helped to keep me cool(ish) and the tide was coming in so I had some help from that (as planned). I was going to continue paddling up towards Glandyfi and onwards until the tide turned but decided it was just too nice for too much effort. Instead I stopped off at the beach on the north side of the estuary and chilled in the shade of the oak trees than line the beach here. Not a bad place for a lockdown lunch break!

I waited for the tide to turn and then headed back. Typically the wind turned with the tide so I had to paddle into the wind on the way back as well but I can’t complain when I had conditions like this.

Back on the Ski

Back at the beach in front of our house and Anna was out chilling on the pebbles. We stood and watched the dolphins for a couple of minutes and then headed home where ice cream was waiting for me.
