January rolling practice
Sunday, January 24, 2010




'I've never actually rolled an Avocet', I thought to myself as I shot down another steep wave, and I couldn't help thinking that today might be the day that I would get to try it out!

I've been inside editing for an unhealthy amount of time recently and I nearly didn't go playing today as I want to finish editing "This is Canoeing" by tomorrow afternoon, but I decided a break would be good for me, apart from plain old fashioned fun!

I hadn't paid any attention to the weather forecast or swell conditions all week, I just jumped in the van with Barry and off we went! Roger & Greer were already on the beach, and we were soon headed for Penrhyn Mawr just as the tide was starting to flood. As we came round the corner where you first see Penrhyn Mawr in the distance, there were already quite an impressive collection of white waves on the horizon. We were all glad that we hadn't arrived any later in the tide when the waves usually pick up...
OF COURSE THE PHOTOS NEVER LOOK AS BIG AS IT FELT!

In the end we had a great day, lots of fantastic rides, a few scary moments, and I can now say that I can roll the Avocet with absolutely no problem AND the sea isn't that cold! We had a total of 4 rolls between us, although I had half of those ( just making sure it rolled OK!).

We had a paddle up towards South Stack, then lunch on a bouldery beach, before heading home...
Now, here I am back at my desk..... ! Time to finish off the editing.. I hope to have a preview clip up on the internet tomorrow or Tuesday which I'm quite excited about.

THIS IS A PHOTO FROM A WEEK OR SO AGO, THIS FELLA WAS USING THE WOODSHED AS A PLATFORM TO GET TO THE TASTY IVY GROWING ON THE WALL BEHIND IT.
