Find your epic, was the challenge set out by Visit Wales this Summer. They asked people to photograph great things around Wales and post those photos with the hashtag #FindYourEpic.
To increase awareness of this marketing campaign Visit Wales had a giant Epic Sign made and placed at breathtaking venues around Wales. Controversial maybe, but shouldn’t all social media campaigns encourage debate? Like Porthcawl’s #SelfieBench. The one thing you have to agree about this sign though is at its massive size, is certainly is epic. Here I have added Grant and Andrea for scale.
Returning to Rhossili for more surfing with the Halpin-Jones clan, a two foot swell with a slight sideshore wind and blazing sun meant we were going to find our South Wales Epic with or without a giant sign.
The waves were pretty epic, and as always so was the Rhossili view.
We had to get straight down to the beach and catch some waves.
My waterproof camera coming in really useful again.
Some really epic waves were to be had in the end of summer sun.
If you really want to find your epic, the view of Wormshead from the sun soaked, surf line up, has to be a contender.
Exhausting work, this finding your epic.
The endless supply of good waves to surf was taking its tole.
Line after line was rolling into Rhossili Bay. Forming classic Gower blue lines like corduroy.
You always have to get just one more last wave.
But with the tide going out, that long walk back up the cliff was looming over us, and it was time to get back to the car park.
We had a prime spot in the bottom field, with our vans having an unblocked view of Wormshead.
The whole crew wanted a #FindYourEpic selfie in front of the Epic Sign.
Even Sharon and I had to get our picture by the sign, Molly will be gutted she missed this adventure.
The great thing about this time of year, is by the time you have finished surfing and had a bit of a chill out in the field, the sun starts to go down on the icon Wormshead. Being the furthest west point in Gower there is nothing between Wormshead and the sunset.
So we found our epic, now go and find yours, DimExcuses.
