Windy and Wavey Rhosneigr
So it was a very windy weekend last week. with about mast high waves coming in the bay but it was actually ground swell for a change. Bucky Got out on the water early for a good SUP session. Looked like he is loving the Fanatic Allwave 9'6 SUP, Ripping! About 10 o clock the wind started to kick in! I was the first on the water with my kit. 5.3 Icon and 86L Mistral Shock Wave. Wobbling out then catching the wave on the way in. Fully powered on the wave. brilliant morning. only 3 out! myself Adrian Jones and Steve Laddiman for the morning. Then of course the wind came and there were about 10-15 guys on the water. All psyching off of eachother. Matt Tuck managed to snap one picture of myself!
The next day the waves were still pumping! but it then turned into a day of 4.2m powered up sailing! good jumping and amazing wave riding. Dave and i tried the 75L Simmer Flywave quad! It is pretty much the most exciting,fun, just most awesomest board weve used! Dave said he was getting purely vertical and in Rhosneigr sometimes its fairly difficult to do that! Where as I was just going for sliding top turn's getting it to release and sometimes sailing backwards down the wave. Getting close to trying Taka's now! The Flywave is Incredible!
We are now offering Demo on the 82L mistral Wave Twinzer! and is only now £700
Some Mega deals on boards at the moment also:
Mistral Shock Wave 78L £900
Mistral Syncro 117L £900
Mistral Twinzer 74L + 90L £1079
Wind has died and within a day the waves had completely gone! enough for an excellent surf lesson! They managed to stand up in the 2 hours we were on the water! Fantastic work!
So, The wind is back again looking like it could be another epic few days! But only one issue! Its bloody pooring down! check it out for yourselves!
So i Hope to see everyone on the water this weekend! and We will make sure the kettle is on! Bring your own biscuits though!
So the shop has been super busy this past week with half term and also jubilee weekend. for us it was a pretty big thing in rhosneigr. and crowds of people gathered for the weekend. There was a few days of action on the high street. With Sunday being a write off, Monday brought everyone out and it became an absolutely beautiful day. First of all there was a parade on the high street with all the children all dressed up looking great, our seren came third in the parade! There was a woman doing balloon art on the high street outside of fat face, Then the big event was a band on outside the sandymount club, One band was Crwydro which were absolutely amazing with lead singer Cai Pattinson! Good Job guys! Also down on the beach we held a Welly Wanging competition. Which Dave won! Nice one, beating all the children. The weekend was a big success! very busy in Rhosneigr. George Sampson the dancer was about and bough some Reef Flip flops! And apparently jack whitehall was in the village.
Tuition is kicking off at the moment also, with alot of windsurfing lessons and SUPing the new craze! all going well. keeping us busy. Hiring is also doing amazingly well, almost everyday the SUP's or surfboards are out on the water. Kitesurfing lessons going on today also. Westerly winds coming in.
Yesterday was a massive day in the bay. about 30-35 knots. West North West so wasn't bang onshore, some starboard tack action for a change. Sometimes getting a little freaked out, waves probably logo-mast high at times on the drop of the high tide. Real good backside riding and some wierdly nice starboard tack jumping. Never thought i would say i enjoyed a session on starboard but i think slowly becoming handy on it. Today its still windy! Dave going out on a 9, guys out on 7-9m kites. abit more westerly today definitely a kiting day. Right Better crack on, See you guys on the water!
BWA Round 1- Rhosneigr
So its the time of year again. The first stop to the BWA tour has been and gone. All in all a very good event held here in Rhosneigr. We ended up with 2 days of wind.
The Friday we had about 15-20 knots North Westerly so it was port tack wave riding over on the cymyran side of the bay. Where we managed to run most of the pro's single elimination up to the final! where the wind actually started to die off slightly. Then the Friday night everyone went to the Dry Ski Slope in Llandudno, which was great. A good crowd over there.
Saturday ended up with a no-winder. Today was the day of registration for all the Amateur/Womens/Masters and Youth fleets.This year we had a massive 52 competitors in total which everyone was definitely pleased about. Sun was out plenty of people around and keeping us on our toe's over here at the shop. Saturday night ended up with a good doo at the Sandymount Club on the Rhosneigr High Street. They put on a great spread for us, Curry! At least 40 people ended up coming for the food and from then on i don't really remember much. So a great sign of a good night. We did try to make it a themed night by making it Olympics fancy dress. Proffitt,Jystina, Shillito, Lewis and Muzza put some thought into it and all came dressed up which was brilliant. Myself(Liam) and Ben Todd ended up going as some St.Lucian olympians, The Lycra shorts came out!
So Sunday was the big day about 25 knots early on blowing up to a possible 35 knots at the end of the day. With the swell building all through the day. We managed to run a single for all the competitors and also a double for the Pro's. It was definitely classic Rhosneigr conditions. With the South Westerly and also some big swell by the end of the day. Amateur Scotty Mcdowell was ripping all day and actually scored the highest score Head judge Duncan Coombs has ever seen with a 17/20. Well done Scott! The Youth fleet were definitely getting some good action out on the water with some big airs. We actually had an 11 year old competing this year and was impressing everyone. Jystina Sniady ended up taking the Womens 1st! Well done Jystina! Some Amazing riding and nice Forwards!The Pro Final was very exciting stuff! Big tweaked pushies, some huge double attempts and some crazy taka's. I think Phil used some of his local knowledge and came out victorious in the end!

So get your outfits ready!
Talking of Olympics. The sad news has hit us that Windsurfing has now been taken out of the olympic fleet for 2016! And replaced by Kitesurfing!
So the forecast is getting windier everyday! Tomorrow looks like it could be a good days training ready for the weekends competition!
Sunday could also be the big day!
Hopefully see everybody on friday in Rhosneigr or at the Ski Slope in Llandudno to register for the event this weekend!
So Half term has been and gone! and has left us with a taste of summer. Shop was very busy with selling clothing to teaching 'SUPing'.
Last week gave us the oppertunity to hold one of the Forces windsurfing competitions up in Rhosneigr! Fortunately for them they brought big sails! a few light wind days from the North. But then mid week the wind switched on! Both Dave and I managed to get out for a couple of hours through the day. Starting off with 5.3 then Dave on his 4.7 then I again got out and ended up nicely powered on 4.2! Brilliant day had by all i'm sure. The Forces managed to get a result from the South Westerly of 25-30knts and RAF lad Craig Hamilton managed to get to grips with the Port tack action and win the comp. Well done Craig! Unfortunately we were only granted the one day of SW. Which meant all the boys had to get over to Penrhos for some really fun sailing by the sounds of it.
Funsport's Taster Sessions are now beginning to take off, with a few people coming in for lessons over half term and plenty inquiring about lessons for when the weather decides to play ball and give us a few more degrees! Saying that we now don't have to wear hoods and gloves whilst sailing! Must be getting there slowly.... Remember its only £35 for a two hour session in any of our taster activities which include- Windsurfing, Surfing, Kayaking, SUPing, Power kiting and of course some fully professional/qualified instruction!
We are now also fully stocked up with our summer clothing and wetsuits with brands such as - O'Neill, Musto, O'Shea, Saltrock and Oxbow.
