COASTEERING CARDIFF, SWANSEA, PORTHCAWL, CARMARTHEN PREDICTED WEEKLY REPORT – Coasteering is a definite None event this week, huge winds, huge swells, huge surf, stormy conditions making for very rough sea conditions and unsuitable for all coasteering events along the South Wales coastline. No real break through out the week so better to head up to the gorge.
OUTDOOR ADVENTURE ACTIVITIES REPORT 06th December 2019 – Coasteering is definately out of the question all week, but gorge walking and gorge scrambling looking suitable as the river levels drop but canyoning is still looking unsuitable due to the high river levels across all rivers through out the region.
