Best Of British DVD (Second Teaser)...

Okely dokely then, time for another sneaky look at the production of the DVD. This time I headed up to Anglesey to resume the filming on a very iconic location to us salty sea dogs, The Skerries, or scarys as we affectionately call them. It wasn't scary this time though as the pre dawn launch was accompanied by idyllic conditions!
Hope you enjoy the stills taken from the footage ;)

Best Of British DVD Part One (Coming Soon)...

OK, so no blog posts for some time then two in a week! Well not so much a blog post this time but an announcment. 
I''ve been working on a new project, a sea kayaking video that I hope to have ready by the start of next summer :)
The name, Best of British should give a clue as to the content. The DVD will be part of a series exploring some of the best paddling locations in the UK.

For the first shot it made sense to start at home, well I did have other ideas but it just so turned out that I'd arranged a paddle with some friends that I'd  planned to include on the DVD so it made sense to start the project there & then! There were hic-ups though as the first trip involved some decent open water crossing & we all arrived at the beach to be greeted with pretty bad visibility, not what was forecast at all! 
It turned out to be a fab adventure :)

Below is a sneaky look at the front cover, some stills taken from the first shoot and  a treasure map to whet your appetite ;)

Caldey Island With The Cardigan Bay Kayakers...

I've been a bit light on blog posts recently as my paddling has been for work & those images are on my facebook page. It was work that brought me to Pembrokeshire this weekend as I was taking some clients paddling on the Friday, that left me with the weekend to play so I hooked up with the Cardigan Bay Kayakers for a splash around caldey Island :)
Bit of a Motley Crew as you can see!
It looked like being a laid back sort of paddle? 
So I got into the spirit of it too :)
We left from South Beach & thats St Catherine's Island that you can see.
As we set off we're still discussing the route? No one seems to know which way we're gonna go?
Finally it was decided to head to Lydstep first for some cave exploring.

I was a bit slow with the camera but this was a big Bull Seal.

The legend that is Mr Bunston fancies his chances!
And made it in one piece. Just moments after this it looked a whole lot more scary!
Sue peeking into one of my favourite caves.
Approaching St Margrets Island.
Where the caves are like cathedrals!

Passing the causeway between the two islands with Tenby in the distance.
St Margrets is an old quarry site & the building in the image above was from that time.
Nice small bit of surf to head through for our lunch.
Jane surfs to shore :)
Sandtop Bay for lunch :)
Back on the water & my Nordy mysteriously changes into an Epic?
I left the beach in my Nordy but JC thought a mid sea swappy'poos would be fun!
 I concur, tis good fun :)

Just to confuse matter further Steven above chose to swap with JC below. Everyone loves a Nordy I reckon?

There were swarms of huge Barrel Jells of Spur Island, really huge, dustbin size at least! Lots of Jellyfish stroking ensued :)
Nannas cave was proving popular.

Sue spotted these in the cave, anyone know what they are? They're about ping pong ball size & rubbery to the touch?
We headed back to St Margrets so as to complete a full circumnav,
Before heading back to Tenby :)
Was great to see the club members again & will try to join them more often...
