Full on Windsurfing at Ynyslas

Well, I did say that Friday afternoons windsurf session would be a warm up for Saturday and that was indeed the case. Saturday morning was pretty grim. Stormy NW winds, lots of rain and cold too. Not very inviting after the sunshine on Friday. Things were set to clear up a little though so eyes...

Windsurfing at Last

Thanks to lockdown, it’s been ages since I’ve been windsurfing. I put an end to that today though with a nice session of the seafront. Having not been out for a while I was likely to be a bit rusty. The wind was NNW which is an unusual tack for us as well so that...

Pandemic Perambulation

With the lockdown still in full effect and a recovery day on the cards for me I decided to make the most of my allocated outdoor exercise with a nice easy walk. It was chilly in the breeze and there were April showers promised so I had a raincoat with me just in case as...

Lockdown on the Beach

Little has changed as far as the Coronavirus lockdown is concerned. We’ve been told in no uncertain terms to ‘Stay at Home’. Last weekend no one seemed to be listening as it was busier than a Bank Holiday weekend here, but the message is now getting through it would seem. For us, it isn’t really...

Social Distancing on the Sea

How’s this for Social Distancing. Miles from anyone and not a soul in sight. Just me, my boat and I! There was quite a stiff breeze blowing though so things were a little choppy in places. All good fun though and a way to stay sane in these times of uncertainty. Followed by some gardening,...

Saturday Activities

Just a normal Saturday here really. I was up early so managed to get some work done before Anna got up. The tide was too high to get out on the sea so next up was an hour on the turbo trainer which actually felt quite easy, and then a quick run around Ynyslas. By...

Storm Dennis Windsurfing

didn’t quite manage to get out windsurfing in the midst of Storm Dennis. Time, tides and other commitments just meant it wasn’t quite possible. It had nothing to do with the fact that the hailstones would have hurt, the winds were crazy and it would have been a little scary out there on my own!...

Storm Ciara and Storm Dennis

It looks as though we are about to be hit by another storm. Storm Dennis is following hot on the heels of Storm Ciara. There is quite a lot of flooding locally and a fair bit of damage was done along the seafront in Borth and Aberystwyth but for the most part the sea defences...

Wandering Around Ynyslas

It was a chilly start to the day today. Minus 2 degrees Celsius with a heavy frost. Back Pain I didn’t sleep much last night thanks to my back pain. I don’t know what’s wrong with it but it feels like a typical compressed disk type pain and there’s little I can do to make...

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...
