As the Welsh rugby team prepare for their encounter with France,Taran, Jules and I head towards Aberavon Beach for our own surf encounter, little did I know I'd be having my own grand slamming a few hours later.
The surf at Aberavon was smaller than expected (Phew) but nevertheless provided us with some good fun. I wanted to explore some surfing skills and get used to the characteristics of my boat in this environment, Jules was going to meet up with us later on.
As the water wasn't too cold I decided to actually swim in the water and see if I could get some shots from that angle. Taran was out of the water messing around with his big lens and new camera, so Jules had to be the model on this occasion. After I told him what I was planning he said I was mad, maybe, but lets give it a go anyway.
The result....see nothing to worry about.
I get back into my boat and start having a mess around.
Going vertical, yeee ha
My thanks to Taran as usual and Jules for capturing my grand slam moment.
