Pulling Shapes…

Cleopatra Coasteering

Small group today, Coasteering at Abereiddy. Amidst loads of other groups and zillions of tourists we were able to pull off some awesome shapes on the lower freestyle jumps before heading out to the higher cliff jumping. Another sunny Pembrokeshire afternoon. Again a super low tide so lots of exploring of rock pools. Still no spider crabs, we reckon they’ve …

Uber seaweed at low tide

Cleopatra Coasteering

Today’s adventure was with a mixed group at Abereiddi.Low tide = loads of seaweed, but oodles of space in the through cave. Jill, Norman and Stuart (Signum Media) joined us. Jill’s second Coasteer – a lot more confident this time, a definite water babe.As you can see there was loads of seaweed, which made getting out of the water interesting. …

They came out with us on Tuesday, but sea conditions were huge so we didn’t get very far. They booked another session for today and boy were they glad they …

Squaddie Madness

Cleopatra Coasteering

We took a bunch of Royal Anglian Regt lads out this afternoon. What a giggle….. They seemed quietly excited, some looked nervous, others were obviously taking it all in their stride. A nice little swell was pushing in, so we were able to utilize all our favourite water features including the “washing machine” and “tumble drier”. We started out gently, …

Rough Seas

Cleopatra Coasteering

Despite roughs seas and a strong wind, much fun was had by all in this mornings session. Coasteering at Abereiddi Bay. We were the first centre to arrive, so had our pick of routes and play spots.Timing is key in big swell and the group mastered it brilliantly. A very high tide made for some easy jumps, even the huge …

Phew long day today
