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.

Monday Morning Waves

It’s not exactly training but when there are waves about it would be rude not to go out for a little play. Lots of life out there at the moment as well with huge bait balls being dive bombed by gannets and gulls and even a guy out fishing from a surfboard.

Mawddach Marathon 2019

Mawddach Paddlesports Festival It was my third year competing in the Mawddach Marathon at the weekend and yet again it was a good day out. The 20km paddle marathon is part of the Mawddach Paddlesports Festival run by the Merioneth Yacht Club in Barmouth. As well as the ‘race’ which in itself is a fairly...


Colwyn Bay Blast

The third year in a row for me and the 5th Colwyn Bay Blast and it was bigger and better than ever. With 70 paddlers it was the biggest field yet. It was also a Team GB selection race so many of the newcomers were very fast looking indeed having travelled up from Surf Life-saving...


Nice Long Waves

I was half planning on going to Colwyn Bay today to take part in the North Wales Surf Ski Series Time Trial. It’s quite a drive and I can’t really afford the diesel so instead I stayed at home and caught some nice long rides here. It has to be said when given these options:...

Christmas Eve Surf Ski with Mark and Owain

It feels like ages since I’ve been out on my ski or done any exercise of any kind. All due to some sort of man-flu lurgy. It might feel like ages but it’s actually only been a week – that’s more than enough time off for me. So, when I saw a little bit of...


Surf Ski Repair

Well, that was a nice quick turn around – I should be back on the water in my surf ski now. After further inspection, the crack in my surf ski didn’t seem quite as bad as it first looked. It was only superficial damage to the gel coat, but I thought I’d get it checked...

More Waves

And the waves keep coming. Nice clean foot swell today and barely any wind. So, after an amazing sunrise it was off to the beach with my Surf Ski for some fun in the water.

Chilly Waves

Brrrr, it feels as though winter is here. 4ºC pretty much all day long with a cold SE wind as well. There was snow on the hills when we got up and the sun didn’t ever get too high in the sky. I had a day off work thanks to a few hours annual leave that...
