Gorge Walking, Gorge Scrambling, Canyoning, Ghyll Scrambling near Cardiff, Swansea and South Wales: Ill say it again Where has the rain gone?? We are now in the very strange situation where there has hardly been any rain in Wales yes I repeat that hardly any rain in Wales for weeks and the rivers are bone dry. Luckily there is rain for today and forecast over the next couple of weeks and believe me we need it. The Mellte and the Scychryd are both suffering from the lack of rain at the moment. The activities are still feasible but certain areas of the rivers are going to be very low so Canyoning and Gorge Walking activities are acceptable but with caution.
Coasteering near Cardiff, Swansea in South Wales - The wind and swell have now arrived for the end of October which means the Coasteering is looking out of action for the next few days. Last week the conditions were perfect in all coasteering areas across South Wales including Ogmore by Sea nearest to Cardiff and Caswell Bay nearest to Swansea. The only possibility would be to head up to West Wales to aberriddy to get more sheltered conditions.
Surfing and Surf Kayaking -Alternatively as always due to the fact the Swell and the wind has picked up the Surf Conditions are looking alot better across the region. The tides are good and so is the swell, also the water temperature is still high so all round good conditions local to Cardiff and Swansea for the next few days. Chck out Coney Beach in Porthcawl and Caswell Bay in Swansea, these are looking the best options at the moment.
Events and Activities - With the changing weather we should get better conditions on the Canyoning and Gorge Walking areas so we are taking James and Mathew on their Stag weekends in Cardiff up the mountains this weekend to show them the stunning scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
