Conditions Report for Outdoor Activities in Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales - 27.04.2017

Gorge Walking, Gorge Scrambling & Canyoning Outdoor Activities

River levels are currently low along the River Mellte, but we're possibly due some heavy rain across the weekend, which will have a big effect on levels. There has been some rain throughout the week, so ground water levels are high, meaning any heavy rain will lead to flashing and an increase in water flow and force.

We'll still be looking to run our Gorge Walking and Canyoning activities in the Brecon Beacons, but will be keeping a close eye on weather conditions. Full safety equipment is required, as always, and an experienced guide is absolutely vital to understand the conditions and weather. So long as the rain isn't too heavy you could be in for some really fun and challenging conditions along the rivers, you just need the right equipment, guide and attitude.

Coasteering Activities In Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales

After last weeks near perfect conditions for Coasteering there's a bit of a change this weekend. On Saturday, the biggest enemy to our Coasteering activities will be the wind, which will be a cross shore wind, gusting to around 20+ knots. On Sunday, the wind increases further, gusting over 30 knots and the swell is also going to rise to unacceptable levels.

Our advice is to head inland to the Brecons and join us for some Gorge Walking and Canyoning along the rivers. You'll get all of the adrenaline and spectacular views you only get to see from the river.

Surfing, Surf Kayaking, Beach Days and Paddle Boarding

Sunday is the day for surfers, particularly if you head to one of the more sheltered beaches along the South Wales coast. The winds are going to be strong, Easterlies to Southerlies with the swell 4ft - 5ft. Some of the more popular bays to head to are Caswell and Oxwich Bay in Swansea or Rest Bay in Porthcawl.

Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales Stag & Outdoor Activities

It's another busy weekend for us. We've got a full programme of Hen Parties and Stag Do’s joining us throughout the weekend and Monday, taking advantage of the Bank Holiday. They'll be joining us on the rivers in the Brecon Beacons for both Gorge Walking and Canyoning activities. Once they've traversed some banks, crawled under a waterfall or 2 and jumped into some of the plunge pools they'll be off out to experience the unique night life South Wales has to offer.

As safety is so important, we're also running a training course for our guides this weekend too, refreshing their skills, ensuring they are up to date with methods and techniques and generally making sure they are able to give you the safest, most enjoyable outdoor activities possible.
