Cemaes Bay

2019-12-16 Cemaes Bay – Monday

Simon and I had arranged to set off from Anglesey Outdoors at 8:00am, for some breakfast, before heading up to Cemaes Bay. Cutting a long story short, someone (ahem me!) forgot to pick up their kit from the drying room at Anglesey Outdoors. I guess a combination of still being a bit sore about...

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...

Bouncy

2019-11-25 Rhoscolyn Rhosneigr

The final truck stop meet of the weekend, but this time SI and I were meeting Andras. A chap I'd met before at Rhosneigr and who Si new from paddling with in the past. The wind and swell had picked up overnight. With both Si and myself needing to get home at a reasonable...

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...

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...

2019-10-13 Newport to Ceibwr Bay

The forecast for Sunday deteriorated overnight Saturday and the winds were going to swing around to the NW from just after midday.  So, we decided to paddle once again from Newport and paddle in the other direction, up the coast to Ceibwr Bay as a one way trip. This should see us off the...

2019-10-12 Newport to Fishguard and back

The weather was not looking too good for this weekend and many people dropped out in the week prior, leaving just Fiona (the organiser), Lynette and me making it to Fishguard, Pembrokeshire. We paddled from Newport to Fishguard, around Dinas Island, along some spectacular coast line, stopped for lunch in Lower Town and paddled...

2019-09-08 Flamborough Head

Keefy Green messaged me earlier in the week, asking me if I fancied going along on simon B's trip to Flamborough. I have to admit I wasn't at all sure. Simon B tends to paddle from South Landing to North Landing and back again. It always seems a long way to go for such...

Route Map

2019-05-18 Harry’s and Middle Mouse

So is it Harry Furlough's or Harry Furlongs? Ordnance Survey reckon it is "Harry Furlough's" as does Welsh Sea Kayaking, and yet the chart definitely says Harry Furlong's! Searching the internet I found: "Harry Furlough's Rocks, sometimes said to be a misspelling of furlong from the length of the rocks". I'll use both terms...

Just chilling'

2019-01-20 Just chillin’ @ Harry’s

The weather forecast was looking good for a morning paddle, with the winds increasing over lunchtime. So Andy and I decided a trip to Harry's would be a good option, leaving us plenty of time to get home. Due to the swell, Harry's was fairly messy, but it was still good fun catching the...

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,...

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...
