Anglesey Sea Kayak Festival

Autumn has come around once again. Leaves falling from the trees, shorter days and blustery weather. Yet we continue to paddle the seas albeit with a touch more caution. On this particular day Porth Dafarch was reminding us that the sea is beautiful but also powerful and mighty.

One of the highlights of the Autumn part of the paddling calendar is the Anglesey Sea Kayak Festival. Over 100 paddlers from UK and Europe gathered at the Anglesey Outdoors Centre for 3 days of paddling and socialising.

This year many of the groups hid from the strong southerly winds by exploring Anglesey's rugged north coast. The old brickworks at Porth Wen was the sheltered lunch stop of choice.

Back on the south west corner of Anglesey, the surf was pounding into Trearddur Bay providing exhilarating, challenging and sometimes scary water. Great conditions, lovely people, awesome festival!
