Winter @ Ynyslas

It may be the depths of winter. It may be cold. It may we grey, damp and miserable. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun here at Ynyslas. Surf Skiing to Borth and back. Surf skiing in the waves. The first after work, sunset windsurf session of the year too. Near freezing temperatures and dark...

Windsurfing in a Hailstorm

Just a quick video to give you a taste of Mondays windsurf session here at Ynyslas. 25-35 knots of wind so I was well powered up with my 5m sail and 85ltr board. Some fairly big seas but nothing too mad. The hailstones hurt though when sailing into them at 25mph! Plenty of jumps, some...

GoPro Windsurfing

The forecast for the run up to Christmas was looking good wind-wise though so I was chomping at the bit and ready to...

Sunny Windsurf Session

After my first windsurf session for absolutely ages on Monday, the conditions on Tuesday were even better. Much sunnier and a bit windier too with slightly larger waves as well. It would have been rude not to go out again but with a busy day planned and lots to do I only just managed to...

Just Checking that I can still Windsurf

Thought I’d better check that I could still windsurf seeing as it has been howling for days. Popped over to the beach with my 5m sail and 85 ltr Naish Hybrid Freewave. 25-30 knots WNW winds and some fairly meaty, messy swells to play with. The odd crazy squall to contend with as well,  but I...
