Another one from my lovely few days in North Wales:

The water was flying past and I noticed, when editing, that some thrill-seeker jumped out of a boat into the racing tide. Couldn’t see him/her again. Keep your eyes open at about 1.04:

Its a regular occurrence with tourists - they haven’t a clue about them currents. I used to canoe it when young & frivolous but now prefer the high speed rigs that blast down from Caernarfon - my Mrs can be heard from the shore screaming lol

Fk me, I’ve had too much wine, deleted my own post !!! lol
That is the BEST flying & filming I’ve ever seen of the Straits - bar none !!! Bloody spectacular and a lesson to all pilots on how to get it right in difficult surroundings with nerves of steel - 100% respect. You did a cracking job on the Menai Bridge and i noted you were careful at the Britannia with the super grid that catches many out. Absolutely fantastic flying :clap: :clap: :+1: :+1:
On your next visit, give me a shout - I think you will like Porth Wen, if you’ve never been, on the NE coast - has an old abandoned Victorian brickworks on the shoreline with its own now almost destroyed jetty etc - bit of a trek getting down to it, but well worth it. With your skill, you will capture it like never before.
