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

Summer Returns

After a week or so of decidedly autumnal weather summer has returned. Temperatures were back up into the low 20’s the sun was shining and there was no wind at all… Typical seeing as it was the Boardwsie Demo Day at Aberdyfi! No wind means no chance to try out some new kit and no...

The fastest way to Aberdyfi

Autumn is here and I’ve just got back from a nice windsurf session courtesy of some autumnal winds. It’s definitely beginning to feel a little cooler out there and the conditions are feeling less like summer, despite the sunshine. The winds were dead Westerly. So, my initial plan had been to wait until around 1:30pm...

Mini Windsurf Session

Well, it wasn’t the best of sessions on Tuesday afternoon, but the sun was shining, and it looked windy so I gave it a go. I started with my 5m sail and smaller wave board but there was nowhere near enough wind. I therefore rigged the 5.7m sail and larger freestyle wave board, but by...

Wake Up, Today’s Gonna be a Good Day!

Well, I commented yesterday that you can’t beat an early morning swim before a day at work. Maybe I was wrong, because an early morning windsurf in perfect conditions before work is equally as good, probably better! 30-35 knots with sunny skies and warm temperatures. A little bit of chop at this side of the...

Windsurfing at the Weekend

I’ve just realised that I haven’t blogged for a while and haven’t posted to say that I went windsurfing at the weekend. So, I had a decent windsurf session here at Ynyslas on Saturday. Steve came down for the day and we spent the morning blasting about in some big seas and a decent SW...

Summertime Shreddin’

It’s not often in Wales that it’s too warm in the sea with a thin 3/2mm wetsuit on, but it was today. What’s more, there was a perfect 25 knots of wind, the sun was shining and the tides were just right. There was no option but to spend the day windsurfing! I was perfectly...

Bee Pool Party

The bees seem to be loving the new garden pond. There were literally hundreds of them all lined up along the edges at the weekend. We had a hedgehog visitor at the weekend too, and there was a cool photo of a stoat on top of a fence post in the dunes here posted on...

Anniversary Treats

Seeing as we hadn’t long got back from Norway, we had a fairly quiet weekend. Saturday I’d brought home a little bit of lurgy with me anyway so had been taking things easy as far as exercise is concerned. There was lots of wind forecast though so Steve was coming to the coast for the...

Summer 2023

I know it’s still only May, but 15 days without rain here in Wales definitely counts as summer! Temperatures have been up close to 20ÂșC every day, and everything looks lovely. Coupled with another bank holiday weekend that we’ve just had and it almost feels like a holiday now and then! Most days start with...

Summer Windsurfing is Here

What a session that was!! After a 20-mile lunchtime bike ride doing 3-minute intervals, it was back to work while the wind filled in. By 2 pm it was blowing a hoolie, so it was off to the beach for a windsurf with Alistair. The skies were blue, there were white-caps covering the sea and...
