Earning the Frosty Badge!

Brrrr, that was a chilly frosty one. Minus 4ºC on the Borth & Ynyslas Weather Station when I headed out for a surf ski paddle this morning. The grass was crusty with frost, the sun was just putting in an appearance and wisps of mist were rising from the sea. Tiny waves lapped against the...

Making the Wave Count

Storm Callum didn’t bring too much destruction to this part of Wales, but it was much worse elsewhere. The decision to cancel Round 5 of the Welsh Cyclocross Series was made based on the forecast. Judging by the photos and new reports from Carmarthen it was a good call. There was flooding everywhere down there...

Mawddach Marathon 2018

Another gorgeous day in Wales with temperatures up around 30ºC and glorious sunshine. Thankfully Barmouth is only an hours drive away so I wouldn’t be spending too much time on the road today. I set off early anyway as I’d prefer to be on the beach in the sunshine than driving in the van. I...

Colwyn Bay Blast – Take 2

I started Surf Skiing last year as a new challenge so that I could take part in Quadrathlons. From there, I soon found myself taking part in the Colwyn Bay Blast, my first ever surf-ski race. I did terribly. My lack of skills, no paddle training and old, uncomfortable kit saw me finish last after...

Sunny Windsurfing

That was a nice surprise. After a Surf Ski paddle in the morning, the wind filled in much more than expected and I had a sunny windsurfing session in the afternoon as well. Surf Ski The surf ski session saw me paddling into an increasingly strong wind towards Aberdovey. I therefore had some chop to...

Mist & Murk

Whilst many places in the country seem to have wall to wall sunshine and summery weather, we have yet again had nothing but mist and murk with temperatures in single figures thanks to a thick sea fog . I did manage to hobble over to the beach with my surf ski for some nice waves...

Maximising Time on the Wave 1

Maximising Time on the Wave

I’m all about maximising Time on the Wave (TOW). Usually TOW stands for Time on Water and you all know that I already do that. Surfing, Windsurfing, Kitesurfing, Swimming, Kayaking, Surf Skiing, Canoeing, Stand-up-Paddle boarding have all got me out on the water as much as I possibly can whatever the weather. The conditions are...
