WE GET SPECTACULAR MOUNTAIN WAVE IN THE PREVAILING WESTERLY WINDS. THE SITE HEIGHT RECORD STANDS AT 25,000 FEET AND WE ALSO SPECIALISE IN CROSS-COUNTRY WAVE FLYING. SITED TO THE WEST OF AIRWAY N864, WE ENJOY UNHINDERED ACCESS TO WELSH WAVE.

CHECK OUT OUR WAVEFESTS – DURING APRIL AND OCTOBER EACH YEAR – JUST GREAT IF YOU’RE DIAMOND- HUNTING!

RIDGE

30 KILOMETRES OF THE CLWYDIAN RANGE MEANS THAT EVEN IF THE WAVE LETS YOU DOWN THERE’S A GREAT SUBSTITUTE.

WE ALSO HAVE EASY ACCESS TO SOAR THE SNOWDONIAN MOUNTAINS, WHICH IS PARTICULARLY GOOD IN A NORTH WESTERLY AS YOU CAN SOAR OVER 60KM OF HILLS! FOR THE RACERS AMONG YOU, OVER 300KM OF RACING ALONG THOSE HILLS ARE EPIC.

THERMAL

A CHOICE OF THERMAL SOARING – EASY ACCESS TO THE FLATLANDS AND THE HEART OF ENGLAND, OR THE CHALLENGE OF MOUNTAIN THERMALS IN NEARBY SNOWDONIA – CERTAINLY A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT WAY TO EXPLORE NORTH WALES!
