However, recently I had a moment where I was transported back to being 14 years old, when I received my first snowboard. I’d sleep with it next to my bed so it would be the first thing I’d see upon opening my eyes in the morning. I’d never felt so excited about anything in my life, and I’m not really sure I’ve ever felt that way since. This “flash back” moment was triggered by the delivery of our new range or Dragon goggles.

When the surf is flat but the sun is still shining, us Welsh outdoor fanatics get out our bikes and hit the road, or the mountains – depending on how energetic we’re feeling!

Llangennith is a mecca for watersports enthusiasts who flock to the beach throughout the year. Although this surf spot could be spoilt by the sheer numbers of surfers it attracts, the huge size of the beach means that you can still get an awesome session in even when the water is packed. Llangennith is the most consistent break on the Gower Peninsula and offers something for surfers of all levels. Llangennith gets big in the winter, and I mean BIG. It’s known for its long and difficult paddle out and even when the conditions are crystal clean, it still takes some serious physical fitness to get out back. For those that do, though, the reward is great. Long rides all the way to the beach on powerful lefts and rights, Llangennith is one of the best surf spots in the UK.
