Summer’s Back

After a week or so of slightly dreary weather, it would appear that summer is back. I’ve got nothing against the ‘dreary’ weather of course. The rain was good for the garden and the wind was good for windsurfing so I’ve been fairly happy. There were some pretty big waves at times too. These waves...


Paddling along the Coast

With the weather set to change tomorrow I thought it would be a shame not to make the most of the sunshine today with a paddle along the coast. It wasn’t quite as hot as it has been with temperatures around 19ºC but the sun was shining there was a light breeze and everything looked...


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...


Social Distancing on the Sea

How’s this for Social Distancing. Miles from anyone and not a soul in sight. Just me, my boat and I! There was quite a stiff breeze blowing though so things were a little choppy in places. All good fun though and a way to stay sane in these times of uncertainty. Followed by some gardening,...


Colwyn Bay TT – Last of the Season

We’ve been a bit unlucky this year with the Colwyn Bay Time Trial Series. The regular storms that always seem to have coincided with a weekend have meant that one or two of the planned races had to be first post-poned and then cancelled. To be honest I was kind of glad when they were...


Christmas Surf Ski & MTB

The weather wasn’t very Christmassy this year as there was no sign of snow, not even any first and it was unseasonably mild. There was some sunshine on Christmas Day but then things deteriorated into greyness and drizzle. There wasn’t much in the way of wind though which makes a change for here and there...


Comfort Zone

Today’s surf ski session was all about pushing the comfort zone. The waves in the video don’t look massive and by some standards they weren’t. However, they always look a little bigger when you are sat low in a surf ski in amongst them and with over 6m of heavy fibreglass essentially strapped to you...


Surf Ski Shopping

With no cyclocross race this weekend and having cracked my surf ski on Monday, I was heading north on Sunday to Colwyn Bay for the second in the series of the North Wales Surf Ski Paddlers races. Snow Dusted North Wales in Autumn It felt as though I’d forgotten something as I headed off without...


Expensive Habits

I seem to be hearing that more and more these days. Not usually associated with spending too much money, but more due to the fact that I’m out swimming in the sea, cycling, paddling or running at all hours of the day and heading off to races or on adventures all the time. This week...

Rainy Days & Waves

I couldn’t let Monday get all of the credit. Tuesday is just as good a day after all. it may have been raining but there were waves so it was off to the beach again for some fun rides on my surf ski.
