The Knap to Bendrick Rock

Friday 2nd July 2010

Craig and I set off from the pebbles an hour before high water in to a slight SW swell, Small short waves crashing on to the beach and the odd big one.
we paddled straight to Barry docks entrance.

Its a different world from this level

Now what was my draft

Our office on the way out to put a pilot on a ship

He knocked and knocked but they wouldn't let him in

Fenders don't see much action these days

Bandrick Rock

Barry Island beach (Whitmore Bay)
Stretch the legs and a snack

The Rockhopper

Now these waves aren't big, but they can catch you out,
Craig's got to buy new sunglasses.

In to the Old harbour, then back to the pebbles.

A good paddle.

Aberporth 11th June 2010

The first time I had to land in the surf I came out, it was at Newgale and the water was clean and warm so no problem but I needed some practice. Looking down at Aberporth beach there was small waves to the right so I went for a play.

Had a good time getting some confidence, high bracing beam on waves and surfing.

Hopped up this gully to stretch legs

Parking, Get there early school hol times
