Up at 5AM today to get to Stuarts by 7AM & hitch a lift in his van to meet up with Noel at Llangennith in the Gower. Then off to Hill End campsite to drop off Stuarts van & squeeze our kayaks onto Noels car roof for the drive to the start point, Oxwich Bay.
I've only paddled her once & I promised myself a return paddle, which I've now done, though Stuart has got a point, think a few more Gower trips are on the cards :D
The tip & West side of the Worms Head finally gave me some play time with some fun swells to play in right next to the cliffs, I was a happy bunny. I played in the rocks, popped into a cave & smiled at the seal's & probably amused Noel & Stuart with a couple of close calls in the rocks.
We ended the day with a tentative surfing session, the waves were only small 2-3 feet, occasionally just over head height. There was no wind so these were all swell, powerful, steep & dumping into the soup, a bit scary.
The first one I caught picked me up like a rocket, as it turned me side on I looked up to see a curler about to dump on my head. I did not expect to stay upright? lucky I guess.
I was a bit more nervous after that but we all had a play & caught some fab waves finally packing up after I did an inverted bongo slide :D
Oh, & in case you were wondering why the post is called danger mouse? I saw a video of surfing mice & had the Danger Mouse theme in my head whilst I was catching waves ;D
