Getting wrenched along by a cable at 25mph and punting off a kicker into an icy sea isn’t for everyone, true, but for adrenalin enthusiasts the punishing combo of speed, air and belly flops is irresistible. Swansea’s new wakeboarding park, which opens this month at the Prince Of Wales dock, will deliver all three with verve. It’s being supported by the Welsh Assembly through the Single Investment Fund and by Associated British Ports, and it’s a collaboration between established water sports operators in the city.

Dragon sculptures take over Newport


BOOKS Wales book of the


year announced By the time you read this, the Wales Book Of The Year winner will have been announced. Sadly, because of looming deadlines, we can’t actually tell you who’s won, but the details are available on our website. The award is the culmination of months of prepara- tion and follows the establishment of a longlist of 10 novels that was released in April. The list includes debut novels from Mike Thomas and Terri Wiltshire; Alun Trevor’s memoir of a Welsh childhood; travel writing by Horatio Clare; short stories from Emyr Humphreys and poetry from Jasmine Donahaye, Philip Gross and Richard Marggraf Turley. Peter Lord is nominated for his scholarly account of the history of Welsh painting and Nikolai Tolstoy for his analysis of the origins of the Mabinogi.

SuperDragons will be bright- ening the streets of Newport this July, as a collection of 60 five-foot high dragons are dispersed throughout the city. The dragons have been created by local artists and will create a trail from the riverside to the city centre and around the surround- ing neighbourhoods. Sort of like those pigs in Bath, then? Yeah, but y’know... Welsh-er. Trail maps will be available on the website nearer the time, or if you really cannot wait to see them, a selection will be shown at Tre- degar house on Sun 18 Jul. The project will result in thousands of people getting out and about, following the trail and taking a greater pride in Newport, appar- ently. Whatever the reason, they sure do look purdy, right? The event will run from Mon 19 July till Sat 9 Oct – after this time, the SuperDragons will be auctioned and the proceeds donated to the Born Free charity.
