What a blast! Two days on the beach at Sandy Bay in Porthcawl, where I spent many a summer on holiday when I was growing up in South Wales. The aim of the two days was to introduce students to art of kayak surfing on the sea. Fortunately, the tide, weather and wind gods were kind to us and provided just the right amount of surf for the students so they were suitably challenged and had fun. It was a tough job but someone had to do it.
