Kayaking Wales or Wales Kayaking

After many years of being out of print and not having a guide book to help you on your Welsh canoeing explorations. The Welsh Rivers Guidebook is now back!

The Welsh Rivers Guidebook is the perfect comprehensive guide for kayaking in Wales.

Patrick Clissold, Tom Laws and Chris Sladden have spent lots of time improving the new Welsh Rivers book, It has been fully updated, modernized and in certain areas the grades have been adjusted to suit the levels of today's paddling.

It covers over 180 rivers and this will give in excess of 2000 kilometres of paddling from river source to sea.

The new guide to Wales will give paddlers information on what river grades are, how river grades are calculated and what sort of challenges you can expect. It also contains the information / exceptions to this rule. This exception will include things such as waterfalls and weirs

The rivers included within the guide have also been grouped in several different ways. Firstly they have grouped them by catchment and secondly they have then grouped them by river grading. This really does make it easy to find the rivers you want to paddle.

Each section of the river or suggested trip gives you the length of the kayaking trip, the grade of the water, the gradient of the river and and a rating of the level of when the guide was updated for that specific section.

February Staff Newsletter

February was a busy month in the shop. As well as a number of reps coming to see us, and a number of visits to make, we also attended the Run, Walk, Crawl Brecon to Cardiff Ultra, and hosted a climbing shoe demo with Tenaya at local bouldering wall Spot Climbing. We still managed to get out, and members of Team Up and Under could be found in many parts of the UK; including in the Brecon Beacons, the Lakes, South Downs, Scotland, as well as further afield in Chamonix and George L still in Thailand.

January Staff Newsletter

January saw us starting to get into the swing of things again. A little snow saw many of the team in the Beacons, as well as further afield with trips to the Peak District, Cheddar Gorge and Pembrokeshire all squeezed in. New Years day allowed few of us to get out (even if the weather wasn't great in South Wales) but a number were in still Snowdonia and elsewhere where it was a little nicer.
