Gorge Walking, Gorge Scrambling, Canyoning, Ghyll Scrambling activities near Cardiff, Swansea and South Wales: Its quite an erratic time for the rivers at the moment, spells of rain and sunshine are causing variable conditions on both Sychryd and Mellte rivers in the Brecon Beacons National Park. The waterfalls are in flow at the moment and the rivers medium to high. Any heavy rainfall will push them over the acceptable levels for Gorge Walking and Canyoning. Looking at the the forecast from the 31st May the weather has settled down and so has the rainfall giving the perfect conditions for all activities in the mountains and the waterfalls. The Mellte and the Sychryd rivers will be running perfectly for the gorge walking and canyoning activities in the brecon beacons for the duration of the next few days.
Coasteering activities near Cardiff, Swansea in South Wales Coasteering is looking possible across South Wales close to Cardiff and definitely for Swansea. The swell is constant but to to big so conditions could be very good especially in Caswell Bay in Swansea. The areas of Ogmore by Sea will be more volatile as always but possible on the high tide on certain days. This is all about the amount of swell at the moment so keep an eye on windguru and magic seaweed.
Surfing, Surf Kayaking, Beach Activities and Paddle Boarding Surfing is looking good across the region again with constant swell throughout the region. The wind will play a major factor but Rest bay in Porthcawl and Llangenith in Swansea should both get consistent surf over the next few days. The tide will make a huge difference with incoming tides being the better option.
