Bit Of A Bitch!

Another day in Pembrokeshire & me & Stuart decide to brave the Bitches & Paddle from St Justinians to Porthclais. Didn't quite go to plan, we decided to launch from Whitesands but a quick look at the surf & we quickly decided St Justinians would be a much softer option...

A tricky carry to the sea, my Nordkapp only just fit around the turns on the steps...




Heading out to the Bitches & all was going to plan, no scares yet...

Very friendly fulmars, just feet from me. I love Fulmars, mini relations of the Albatross but equally beautiful & graceful. A fly by from a Fulmar stays with you forever...
A brief landing on Ramsey, (O.K.(pee break)...
Posing at the Bitches, the Bitches themselves weren't bad but the sea beyond was looking a bit rough so we decided to scrap Porthclais & head to the North of the Island before crossing back to the mainland...

It was nice & calm near to the Island so I practice some Rolls, The first was sketchy as I sliced the blade but the second was much smoother...
Looking towards Carn Llidi on the mainland...
It was starting to get a bit rough as we approached the North of the island so I put the camera away. As we approached the tip of Ramsey the sea really picked up with a strong tidal flow & confused water. We decided to try & paddle past the worst of the rough water & then ferry glide across till we were out of the worst of the flow. It was a bit touch & go & one hell of an adrenaline rush. Big enough sea's for me at the mo...



Back at St Justinians & we realised that our progress was being watched...

  1. What an amazing place!
    Can't wait to get back there, hopefully soon.
    To anyone who hasn't been in the Sound, they will be thinking 'doesn't look bad, whats there worry' but anyone who's been there knows too well that it is never the same twice. Each time I've paddled there it has been a mix from flat calm to crazy fast tides with a swell thrown in for good measure.
    Missing it!
