Sea kayaking North Wales - Improve ...intro mediate skills

With Keith, John and Jen on our Improve sea kayaking course and a week of varied weather and strong winds for the first day we set off for Llyn Padarn, and the mountains of Snowdonia, a 20 minute drive from the boat yard.

This provide a super start with refreshing skills of edging and leaning, stern rudders and effective forward paddling.

Day 2 and on to the Menai Straits and with the winds due to drop we did a journey from Menai bridge to Beaumaris.

Introducing ferry glides, eddy turns and working in more swell.

Day 3 and some sun shine! ... This time the North coast and Bull Bay and the brick works, working with paddling in current and swell and a small race.

Lunch at the brick works and some super sunshine

The boys, John and Keith.

The 4th day was a journey to Puffin Island and merits its own account!!
