We're still expecting 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 shouldn't be too 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.
Conditions for Coasteering are looking good over the next few days, particularly into next week when the swell should have calmed down. This should mean that the regions in Swansea such as Caswell Bay and Ogmore-by-Sea should be accessible and acceptable for the event.
As always this is only if the weather predictors are right so as always always keep an eye on the changing conditions, particularly the swell size and tides.
Surfing conditions are a bit mixed for the next few days. The swell for the weekend isn't looking too bad but the low swell moving into the following week that help with Coasteering mean the sea could be a little flat for surfing. The usual areas such as Rest Bay & Coney Beach in Porthcawl & Llangenith Langland in Swansea should all be good options over the weekend.
We were in for a big weekend again of fun and adventure with our Stag and Hen groups visiting us from all over the country for our activities based in Cardiff, Swansea and South Wales. Graham and the lads are on there ultimate Gorge walking adventure in the Brecon Beacon Mountains. They will be on there Stag weekend in Cardiff and heading to us early on the Sunday morning for a full day in the mountain. We also have Helen and the girls Coasteering on the Cliffs of Ogmore by sea close to Cardiff and Swansea, so should some get shots for facebook.
As always in South Wales you need to be aware of the potential of flashing in the Gorges after any spell of heavy rain. If you are looking at Coasteering, keep a close eye on the tide times and be aware of the large tidal movement around the South Wales coast. Water temperatures here in South Wales are still low, around 4°C in the rivers and 9°C - 10°C in the sea so make sure you take precautions, particularly with regards to thermal protection.
