Braving Storm Barbara – Windsurfing and Biking

What a day that was! There has been very little wind for what seems like ages. Very little apart from the mad, short-lived and very destructive squall that we had back in November. The forecast for the run up to Christmas was looking good wind-wise though so I was chomping at the bit and ready to...

Video Swim Analysis

I had my swim stroke recorded on video a few weeks back and have now got a copy of the footage. Now, before you say anything, my swimming isn’t too bad, but I’m also far from being ‘really’ fast. I guess I’m better than the ‘average Joe’ in the water, but even so I’m nowhere near...

Windsurfing – The not so good bits

Another day and yet more wind, and better still, the sun was shining. Needless to say I went for a windsurf here in West Wales and had a nice little session. I didn’t stay out long though and today for a change I thought I’d share some of the ‘not so good bits’, the crashes...

Wild and Windy Windsurfing

It was another wild and windy day here in West Wales, so just a short windsurf session for me today as I was a little tired after a long mountain bike ride yesterday and the conditions weren’t exactly easy. I walked over to the beach with my kit and met Tom and Sam there. I...
