slack water is best around the skerries, especially during springs. neaps are fine at all states of tide generally.

We went out towards caernarfon bar last Thursday, everywhere on the strait flat calm but there was a fair SW wind over falling tide out of caernarfon. Tide must have been in the window of correct depth over the bar. Surf was like Hawaii!! I've only seen it twice but it makes me sh** myself when I see it. To go out to it (which I did last time) and then run out towards Llandwyn parallel in the channel to get around it, with breakers inshore, is just exhilarating. It scares the beejeezus out of me tbh. You feel so small.

I've seen that once, it certainly makes you take a second look!
