Gorge Walking, Gorge Scrambling, Canyoning, Ghyll Scrambling activities near Cardiff, Swansea and South Wales: All Gorge and Canyoning activities are looking perfect for the next few days. We are getting spells of rain on and off throughout the next few days keeping the water levels pretty constant in the Sychryd and the Mellte Gorges. This should mean constant water flow but not to excessive for the activities in the mountains. The land is also still holding water which is adding to the flow and keeping the waterfalls on a constant level.
Coasteering activities near Cardiff, Swansea in South Wales Definite mixed bag this week for both coasteering and surfing, looking like a tale of two half's. The first half of the week is a definite No go the swell is huge and the wind to match so all coasteering events across the region would be unsuitable in fact down right dangerous, But then from the weekend the swell and the wind is dropping to much calmer conditions. This should mean that the regions in Swansea such as Caswell Bay and Ogmore by sea should be accessible and acceptable for the event. However this is only if the weather predictors are right so as always always keep an eye on the changing conditions.
Surfing, Surf Kayaking, Beach Activities and Paddle Boarding Surfing this week is all about choosing the right location. The swell is big for the next few days but so is the wind so we need to take this into account, there are big westerly winds coming so beaches such as Rest Bay in Porthcawl and Llangenith in Swansea will be a no go but they should be working well from Saturday onwards. Coney beach in Porthcawl, Caswell and Langland in Swansea will be the best options for the next couple of days.
