Menai Bridge

2019-12-15 Menai Straits

With Saturday 14th December blown out, and the weather forecast or Sunday looking only slightly better; Simon, Ashley, Kris and I decided to meet up at the Menai Bridge Slipway at 0930 for a session in the Swellies. We played in the currents under Menai Bridge for a while before moving out to the...

Porpoise

2019-11-24 Bull Bay Middle Mouse Cemaes

Sunday and another meeting up at the truck stop where some consumed their breakfasts and others looked on aghast! With the tidal flow timings, we decided to head to Bull Bay and paddle with the tide, taking in Middle Mouse and take whatever else we can get before the tide turns. The weather was...

Rhoscolyn Beacon

2019-11-23 Porth Dafarch to Rhoscolyn

Saturday. Si and I met the others at the truck stop at 9:00am in Holyhead. We were joined by Ashley, Matt, and Gareth. Due to the tide, predicted swell and anticipated weather - a strengthening SW breeze, we decided to paddle from Porth Dafarch to Rhoscolyn and back. We didn't get to see much...

Towards the Skerries and West Mouse

2019-11-22 Cemlyn/Carmel Head

With holidays to use up before the year end, I agreed to meet Simon Williams on the Friday for four days of paddling. All week the weather had been looking extremely unpleasant, but surprisingly on the Friday it turned out not too bad. We agreed to paddle from Cemlyn Bay and to potter around...

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...

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...

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...

The Stacks

2017-11-19 Super Stacks

After a very late night in the Paddlers Return for some and promises of being ready for an 08:30 meeting, I was somewhat surprised to see everyone looking fairly bright eyed and bushy tailed at 08:30!! Perhaps the hang-overs hadn’t kicked in yet! We then spent the next 20 minutes deciding to do Puffin...

2017-05-07 The Skerries

Meeting with PDCC at 9:00am it was soon settled with the weather forecast and tides, a trip out to the Skerries was most definitely on. So off we went to meet again in the car park at Camaes Bay. It was only a couple of weeks ago Helen, Gordon and I paddled to the...
