Adidas sponsored kayaker Jon Haylock paddles The Bitches in Pembrokeshire

You may not be into kayaking, but John Haylock’s video about his love of sea kayaking definitely inspires.

The Bitches are a notorious spot in Pembrokeshire in South Wales where submerged rocks provide a magnet for drawing ships to wreck on their jagged edges. For the whitewater-loving kayaker though, the way the tide tears passed the rocks is the biggest draw.

The pull is so strong that a standing wave is created that kayakers can surf. The spot is such a draw that Haylock even took a job just down the road to be closer to the ride.
