Harry Furlough's

2018-07-24 Harry’s with Curly

After a day off after my trip around Anglesey, I paddled with Curly at Harry's. The sea was nice and smooth on the paddle out and Harry's was working nicely. There was nothing too big, but lots of fun, all the same. We were joined by lots of Terms, dive bombing into the water,...

Actual (blue) vs Planned (red)

2018-07-21/22 Anglesey Circumnavigation

For some time now I've been thinking about paddling around Anglesey. Having read the various blogs out there, by various paddlers who have completed this challenge, I decided I must have a go. Besides, there are just two small sections of Anglesey I had not paddled, so if anything, it will complete the missing...

Owain on the Middle race at PM

2018-07-07 PM and Stacks with Owain

This Saturday saw me paddling with Owain, a friend I've known for some time from paddling the white water course at Holme Pierrepont in Nottingham. Owain was in Anglesey with Nottingham Kayak Club, although most of the NKC group had signed up to paddle with Roger Chandler of Coastal Spirit for the day. Owain...

Plymouth Breakwater Lighthouse

2018-06-12 Plymouth Sound

This was a short paddle around the Plymouth Breakwater and Plymouth Sound whilst on holiday. The breakwater wasn't as interesting as I had imagined, but was worth doing all the same. Interestingly, I was stalked by a motor launch (MOD?) for quite a while as I think they thought I had intentions on landing...

The Church in the Sea

2018-05-13 Church in the Sea

On Sunday we paddled from Cable Bay down towards Llanddwyn Island. We didn't get there as we stopped off at the Church in the Sea (Cribinau), followed by Port y Cwch beach for lunch. We perhaps stayed too long on the beach. After all, it was a glorious day. We did a big beach...

Rhosniegr

2018-05-12 Surfing at Rhosniegr

Saturday saw me going to meet the gang at Rhosneigr 9:00am sharp for some super surfing. Since my last trip out in my surf boat I had found it had foot pegs, buried behind a load of foam. I had also sorted out the backrest and so it was all good to go. The...

My new (2nd hand) Mega Bullitt'S

2018-04-08 Rhosneigr Mega-Surf-tastic!

On the Sunday, I spent the morning trying out my newly acquired Mega Bullitt'S' out on some fairly average surf at Rhosneigr. The sets were still coming in, but now the period between the sets seemed to be about every five or so minutes. The waves were much smaller than the day before. Still...

Kris in the inner race

2018-04-07 Spicy Penrhyn Mawr

Looking out to sea from my van parked at Porth Dafarch in the morning the sea state didn't look too bad, but every now and again I would notice some fairly hefty waves coming into the bay. I'd then look out a few minutes later and all would appear calm again. Hmmm.. interesting. I had...

Rhosneigr

2018-02-18 Rhosneigr Surfing

Dave and I headed for Rhosneigr on Sunday hoping for some Surfing fun. When we arrived we were a little disappointed as there was not a great deal going on, but we decided to get on anyway. We were glad we did, with the surf picking up as the tide went out. It wasn't...

2018-01-27 Menai Straits

With the weather forecast for SW F5 gusting to F7 there was much debate among the various groups at Anglesey Outdoors as to where would be best for a paddle. Having had a little drive down the coast to Trearddur Bay and seen the various conditions, it was an easy decision, head for the...
