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...

Cracking Waves at Ynyslas

We had a fairly rare (for this time of year) calm day here at Ynyslas on Monday. Well, calm for here anyway with winds in the 10-20 knot range but they were blowing offshore and there was a lovely swell to go with it. A nice 3 foot swell peeling nicely off the sandbanks at...

Grey Waves

It’s that time of year between Christmas and New Year. We’re all at home, there’s loads of food to be eaten and there’s not much happening. This year it’s also pretty grey and uninteresting out there. Thursday was drizzly and still to start the day so I headed out for a nice easy run. I’ve...

After an epic weekend of surf and loads of energy from the forces of nature, things were a little calmer on Monday morning. A much lighter offshore wind and some leftover swell.

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...

Ski & Surf

I finally got Morgan out in the surf again yesterday. Time to try out his new wetsuit, new gloves, new boots, new hood and new surfboard. It was a little bigger out there than it looks from the video and the GoPro angle is a bit off but I still got some footage, including a...
