Misty Ullswater 1


Well, just after getting settled in the van it started raining. The constant hammering on the roof kept me awake all night. Oh well, not much I can do about that. I was therefore up early, had a pot porridge and coffee and set off towards Ullswater. My route took me up an aptly named...

After the Storm

After the crazy few days of weather thanks to Storm Emma with a healthy helping hand from Ivor, things finally quietened down on Sunday.

Paddling and Camping in North Wales

Third weekend of the month, it must be time for the Dyffryn Conwy Paddlers kayak time trial in Llyn Padarn. The North Wales Surf Ski Paddlers were also thinking of organising some low-key, informal surf ski races over the winter so I suggested they do them on the same weekend. That way, those of us...

Surf Window 3


The surf’s been pretty good here the last few days. I haven’t had time to edit any video so here are a load of stills from Sunday mornings surf ski session at Ynyslas. Which is your favourite? I’d been surfing on Saturday morning before our meal at Ynyshir Hall as the waves were a little too...
