Bespoke sea kayaking Anglesey

Denis was keen to get a couple of days 1:2:1 private coaching, as he aimed to improve his skills and move towards unsettled conditions.  Emphasis over the two days was effective forward paddling and smooth inside/out side turns.

For variety and due to strong winds different areas of the Straits was used ...

In the Swellies and time for some lunch ...

Using a number of buoys, these provided a super circuit and focus in blending forward paddling with edging to carry the kayak round.  Anticipation of the wind and any current, how much edge and power/pressure from the blade ...

We paddled up towards Plas Menai, had a break and then back on for some wind against tide, putting skills into a new context and for development.  Denis I hope you manage to find a lake/club close to you that is suitable, so that you can further continue to develop those skills, providing time in a boat, until your next venture out on the salty stuff!!
