I hope you'll join us and enjoy everything kayak fishing
has to offer, whilst supporting the RNLI and Heroes on the Water.

Since then following some hard work we organised our first Kayak fishing festival in 2010 and from there the club has grown from strength to strength and held the event in 2011 and recently 2012 where anglers from all around the UK have attended.

SWKA's main aim is to try and promote safe kayak fishing in South Wales and the UK alongside other very informative sites such as Anglers Afloat.

Our main aim is to raise money to help the RNLI and over the last 3 events have raised over £3000 and each year around October we meet up with the Local RNLI crew at Horton and Port Eynon where we present the proceeds from our event.

With over 40 members stretching all along the South Wales coast we arrange courses such as VHF Radio training and Paddle courses and offer help and assistance in anyway we can to help new kayak anglers in this fast growing extreme sport.

In 2011 we were invited to join Loughor Boat club where we now have a place we can call home and meet up for the usual club business and then a friendly chat about all things fishing.

We welcome new members to the club and meet at the Boat club on the last Tuesday of every month. So why not pop along to see us or join us on one of the organised fishing meets that occur most weekends.

product review

Thresher 155 Fishing Kayak

 

SWKA was privileged to be able to test the New Wilderness Systems Thresher 155 Fishing Kayak today, first time in the UK and we have got to say what a cracking Kayak it is, lots of thought gone into it.It rides the waves beautifully resulting in a much dryer ride, stable as a rock and the well known wilderness seat for comfort, lots more extras but will mention that in the review in the coming months.
