Back on the Water

It’s been about 9 months since my heart attack now. So, with the water beginning to warm up and some sunny days it was finally time to start getting back on the water. Sardinia I eased myself into it with a few days of sea kayaking in Sardinia. Going on an organised trip meant there...

Waiting for the Tide to Drop

Monday morning was lovely here. No wind, blue skies and with a backdrop of snow on the hills. It was only 3ºC when I headed out for a surf ski paddle. The tide was high and there was a short period, sloppy wave breaking on the pebbles. It was actually a little bigger than I...


Ynyslas Perfection

My usual morning routine is to get up at around 5am, chill for a while eating breakfast and getting the fire going. I then start work early. After an hour or so of work and as the sun rises I generally wander over to the beach to take a look. It’s nice to grab a...

Tea Break Adventures

There are advantages to lockdown and working from home. Tea Break Adventures is one of them! The main advantage is that it allows for some flexibility in working patterns. Take today for example. I usually work at the University Weds-Fri 9am-3:30pm. However, when working from home I almost always end up doing some University work...

A Snowy Surf Ski

I’ve not long got back from a nice Sunday morning snowy surf ski. We did have some snow here this morning, but only a light covering and it didn’t last long. There is of course plenty in the hills. Unfortunately the hills are just a little too far away to get to without driving. Driving...


Peaceful Estuary Seclusion

Just a couple of photos from today’s paddle into the estuary. I started from home, headed along the beach, into the estuary and then off to my favourite little secluded beach. Not a bad spot for a couple of photos.


Fun Little Waves

Some fun little waves at Ynyslas today. Nothing too extreme, just a nice mellow wave-riding session. There was even a brief appearance of some sunshine – sort of!

The End of Lockdown Number 2

The End of Lockdown 2 Lockdown Number 2 in Wales came to an end on Monday. There was only one thing for it and that was to get out on the water. To be honest, other than not being able to go paddling, windsurfing swimming or do any other watersport, lockdown number 2 wasn’t that...


Surf Ski Session

It’s Tuesday morning and I’ve just got back from a fun little surf ski session. There’s nothing unusual about that as I’m always up to such things, but it’s nice to blog about them now and then. Today’s surf ski session saw light NE winds, temperatures just below 10ºC and a variety of water conditions....


More Estuarine Adventures

With the temperatures about to tumble by the second half of the week it would have been rude not to make the most of the summer weather today. After a couple of days windsurfing in the crazy winds of the estuary it was back into much calmer estuarine waters. To Aberdyfi and Beyond There was...
