Red Bull organised a brutal training camp for the Wing Warriors rugby league squad.

After spending a couple of days at the Red Bull hardline site Dinas Mawddwy, carrying 150kg logs and 14kg buckets of water up and down the side of of a mountain, AberAdventures organised a slightly more tranquil day of slight rest for the team.

The team underwent breath training with the big wave legend, Andrew Cotton. A who knows more than a thing or two about staying calm under pressure.

After a safety brief and initial training with AberAdventures coaches, the team headed out into Aberystwyth harbour, on a cold grey December day, for a number of paddle board activities.

Being ultra competitive this invloved several paddle board races!
