South Stack on the ebb, 20 Jan 2018

A fantastic wintry trip out from Porth Dafarch to South Stack on a 9m (Liverpool) ebb tidal stream.

The swell provided interesting rockhopping.

Force 6(ish) NW Windy Day On The South West Coast of Holy Island, Anglesey

 

A great day of hiding from the wind and rough water fun on the Porthdafarch-Penrhyn Mawr coastline.  Paddling today were Paul, Richard, Rachel, Pete, Jan, Gary and Geth.

The local flood tide flowed until 13:30.  We played in this tidal stream at Mini Mawr and after lunch, once the flood current had finished, the swell at Penrhyn Mawr.  During the flood Penrhyn Mawr appeared to be in a confused state of huge breaking waves.  We finished the day with a superb downwind run home to Porthdafarch.

Porthdafarch – South Stack, 11 Nov 2017

Great conditions for a South Stack trip – 1m 7 seconds SW swell with light F2/3 N wind.  Penrhyn Mawr was superb.

Lots of great company including Ed, Paul, Rich and countless other passing paddler friends.  Photos taken by Geth.
