360 Swansea Beach and Watersports
We were lucky enough this weekend as Swansea Photographer
to be asked cover the launch of the new Beach and Watersports centre in Swansea Bay. 360 Beach and Watersports
has been years in the planning and opened its doors to the public on what was one of the luckiest weekends of the year for the weather! Despite the recent October rain, Swansea Bay was basked in more like mediterranean autumn sunshine. With little wind and almost glassy water conditions for the kayakers and SUP (Stand up paddle) boarders to enjoy. The centre which offers a range of beach sports aswell as watersports also caters for those sunday afternoon strollers with a wide variety of fantastic food and drink at their coffee shop and cafe.
One of my main passions in life is surfing and kayaking and generally anything that involves the sea! I have an obsession that can only be equalled by my love of photography! This weekend therefore didn’t seem like work for me at all as I made my way down to the centre. With zoom lenses / Go Pro
cameras and wetsuit and got stuck into some beach photography work. With high tide early on Saturday morning and the volleyball nets and beach football pitch set up; it was exciting to see the mix of students, children and passers by chill out with a coffee or engage in tuition from the 360 crew. They all tried their hand at the sports on offer.
The centre which is located opposite St Helens
offers a menu of food and drink from early morning up until late 7 days a week 364 days a year as well as changing facilities, watersports hire and beach sports. Kapow would like to wish Ben and the 360 team all the very best with the business. Below are some of my favourite photos from the weekend.. Karl
