Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales Outdoor Activities Conditions - 09.02.2017

Gorge Walking, Gorge Scrambling & Canyoning Outdoor Activities

River levels have returned to a normal level after last week, meaning both Gorge Walking and Canyoning activities are on in the Brecon Beacons. The ground water levels are high so the waterfalls will be running consistent too. All this ground water does mean that any sustained period of rain will cause flashing on the rivers so it's vital you keep aware of rainfall in South Wales, particularly on the mountain regions.

Temperatures are still low and, whilst water temperatures are consistent throughout the year, you need to be prepared for the cold before and after any activity. As always for our outdoor activities, full safety equipment is required, helmet, buoyancy aid and wetsuit will be provided by us but you'll need to ensure you have suitable footwear.

Coasteering Activities In Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales

We could see some acceptable conditions for Coasteering this weekend. The swell is small on the South Wales coast this weekend whilst there is a strong wind, it is offshore. You will need to keep a close eye on the wind direction as any change to a Southerly or Westerly direction will make the conditions unacceptable. You also need to take the tidal times into account, with high tides being early morning and early evening.

If conditions are to change, you can still head up to the Brecon Beacons for some Gorge Walking or Canyoning activities which are less affected by the wind conditions.

Surfing, Surf Kayaking, Beach Days and Paddle Boarding

Where did the surf go? After the huge swell last week, there's virtually nothing along the South Wales coast this weekend. If you're lucky you may get 2ft - 3ft in places and the offshore wind may help hold the waves up enough for you to get some surfing.

The usual locations such as Caswell Bay in Swansea or Rest Bay in Porthcawl will once again offer the best conditions for any surfing.

Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales Stag & Outdoor Activities

It feels like the planning has been going on for a while now, but that's all about to change as the activities once again start up!

We'll be heading up to the Brecon Beacons over the weekend, taking our first batch of Stag Do and Hen Parties from Cardiff and Swansea on some Gorge Walking and Canyoning activities and we're also running some Water Safety and First Aid courses in Cardiff.

We still have spaces available throughout the year in you're interested in doing something a little different for a Stag Do or Hen Party so get in touch today to hear about our various packages.
