  • Biking in the Forest

    161126-fod-biking-2

    Another weekend where the wind disappoints. It has been a while since I had been on a proper mountainbike ride so after a little indecision I cruised up into the Forest of Dean. Pretty much as soon as I pulled into the car park I bumped into Marc and Abi, a couple of local friends […]

  • Autumn Bike Ride

    gp-bike

    The wind forecast didnt turn up so I figured I would play it safe and just stay local. After a short bike ride yesterday and my lungs feeling like they were burning I figured another ride was in order. The new GoPro Hero 5 had been sat on my shelf for a couple of weeks […]

    Early morning stroll round Haugh Woods after a botched effort to make it out for sunrise. It was cold but sunny – a good way to start a day. Everything is looking fully autumnal now with lots of leaves on the ground. After 40 minutes my fingers were numb and it was time to head […]

  • Tallinn, Estonia

    161106-tallinn-69

    An ancient city on the Baltic coastline may not be everyone’s choice for a short break in November – but it turned out to be a great trip! I thought it would be cold – but it was really cold. Minus four and constant snowfall. Tallinn is used to that kind of weather though and […]

    After a morning catching up with friends it was time for some exercise. A mellow SUP to start. The waves were small but fairly clean due to the lack of wind in Rest Bay. A fun session – the air and water were both very mild. After a quick coffee break we headed to Afan […]

  • Kitesurfing Brandon Bay, Co Kerry

    DAY 1 SUNDAY 9th The late night ferry from Fishguard left us in Rosslare at half six in the morning. A steady four hour drive and we made it to a sunny Brandon Bay. After getting our bearings and seeing great SUP conditions it made sense to just get straight out on the water. Two […]

  • Westward Ho!

    I had forgotten just how much I love Westward Ho! It has pretty much been ten years since I first went down there for a kiting event (that never happened). Now I was back for the finals of this years land kiting championships. I got up way before dawn and hit the road on the […]

  • Kayaking on the River Wye

    kalyma-2

    After an early afternoon torrential downpour the forecast was for things to clear up and the sun to shine. I took my chances and headed down to the river. I have been wanting to test an inflatable kayak out for a while – I grabbed the BIC Kalyma – although not the top spec model […]
