About Me

Hi welcome to my blog.  Firstly thanks for visiting, I hope you enjoy my writings.  I am a natural explorer at heart and find myself at home in the outdoors.  I bought my very first sea kayak, A Venture Easky 15lv, in 2009 and have made the sea my life ever since.

I currently own two boats both by Tahe Marine.  My Revel I mainly use for extended expeditions because of the extra volume, and a Greenland T my main day boat.  I am also in the process of building a cedar strip wooden kayak...but that may be a while.

I reside in South Wales a stones throw from the Vale of Glamorgan coastline where I do a lot of my paddling.  The beautiful Pembrokeshire coast is only a short drive where you will also find me most weekends.

I also run a Facebook group called 'Sea Kayak Cymru'.  Please come and check us out, share your pictures, ask questions and join us for a paddle.  

I hope to see some of you out there on the water, thanks again for reading.

Stuart Yendle

Would there be any chance of tagging along on one of your sea kayak trips in the vale of glam ? I have been sea kayaking for about a year now and have done a few 1 week long expeds in Pembrokshire, West coast of Scotland and have kayaked locally East & West of Southerndown. I dont tend to go out to much on my own as my self rescue teqnique still requires work..Lol. mhfrancis100@aol.co.uk

I live in Llantwit Major and have been kayaking for about a year now using a Dancer down the Cardiff white water centre, rivers and occationaly venturing out onto the sea. I,m looking at getting into sea kayaking and am wondering what would be a good first step in that direction.

What a great blog Stuart, thank you. I am a novice but have a Tarpon 100 and want to do some mackerel fishing this Thurs. Coming from Swindon so thought Barry would be the best/nearest place to launch and safely paddle on my own - what do you think?

Looking at Google Earth the harbour seems the place to launch.

I'm 62 and have a lower back problem, took it up 3 years ago - mostly on rivers with the Thameswey club. What you do looks fab, wish I had discovered sea kayaking years ago!

Thanks again Stuart.
