I wanted to do something a bit special this weekend so arranged to meet Stuart in Pembrokeshire with the intention of leaving one van a long way away & paddling back to it with a camp in between.
I decided that we should paddle from Pwyllgwaelod on Dinas Head all the way back to Freshwater East but after some discussion we settled on finishing at Dale.
The first section from Pwyllgwaelod saw us surfing in following seas towards Strumble Head.
I was wondering by now what the wind on tide conditions would be like as we started to head South into the wind.
Just before heading into the beach we bump into a group of kayakers doing their 5 star training & a chance for me to meet Richard from the white water centre in Cardiff.
I stripped off real quick once we were on dry land glad to no longer have salty wet clothes stinging my skin :D
It was a fab camp spot & not long after setting up a group of sea kayakers turn up, it was the same group we saw earlier & I was surprise to see Andy Stamp with them. I know Andy from my own 5 star training up on Skye & a bloody good teacher he is too.
Later that night our crazy friend (Martyn) from Sheffield agrees to drive down that night & join us on the water tomorrow. Thats a 300'ish mile trip for a day paddle, pretty hardcore!
Lets hope its a good day :)
