quad biking in wales

Quad Biking is a great activity for those wanting to stay relatively dry.  I say relatively because you will be sliding, drifting and splashing through muddy puddles.  This activity is great on a dry summers day, but on a rainy day it’s even more exciting.  The slippy surfaces will really test your skills as you navigate your way across our all terrain track.  Using only the best quad bikes, you can be assured you will have a safe ride.  Safety checks are done each and every day to ensure the breaks, lights, gears and steering is all working correctly.  Quad biking Wales with Blue Ocean Activities & Adventure is great, so be sure to click the link.

White Water Surf Kayaking

We love to blog about all the other fantastic activities there are in South Wales, and Wales in general.  One of our favorite things to do, when there’s swell about, is white water surf kayaking.  This is a beach based activity and involves paddling out through the roaring waves and catching them in on our fantastic sit on top kayaks.  It’s difficult at first but once you get used to it you’ll be flying.  Sometimes literally.  On the bigger days, when the waves are 6 foot plus, that’s when it gets really fun.
