Winter @ Ynyslas

It may be the depths of winter. It may be cold. It may we grey, damp and miserable. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun here at Ynyslas. Surf Skiing to Borth and back. Surf skiing in the waves.

Getting to Grips with the Rough Stuff

My learning continues in my surf ski and I’ve been getting to grips with the rough stuff. I know, I know, I should really be working on paddling technique and efficiency as that’s what I’ll need for races, but I just can’t resist getting out and playing in the waves. I’m sure it’s a fairly good...

Nothing to do with Hurricane Gert which is still on the other side of the Atlantic, but decent winds for windsurfing...

There are loads of planning notice signs up at the entrance to the beach here at Borth & Ynyslas for a proposed ‘Metal Cast Oak Tree’.

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...
