Welcome! We are a waterski club located at Llangorse Lake (LLWSC).  East of Brecon, between the Central Beacons and the Black Mountains, Llangorse Lake is the largest natural lake in Wales.

We also have many members who enjoy Wakeboarding, Kneeboarding, Surfing, and Barefooting at Llangorse Lake.

Like the mountain lakes, it lies in a hollow formed by glacial action, but at 154m above sea level, it’s far more accessible.

We are affiliated to British Waterski and Wakeboard Federation, and many of our members both adults and children follow the Cutting Edge participation program to develop their skills. 

The lake is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. To conserve the banks and the wildlife, there are restrictions on how many people can take to the water and where boaters can go, with buoys marking the no-go zones. To get on the water, you need a permit. Launch fees also apply. All lake users must adhere to the rules at all times.  Please familiarise yourself with our rules before launching at LLangorse Lake.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 

2nd June

Cyfoeth Naturiol Cymru / Natural Resources Wales

Our test results have confirmed the presence of blue-green algae at Llangors Lake near Talgarth in South Powys, and that the sample results have increased since Friday.

Some blue-green algae produce toxins that can harm us and animals, so stay safe and keep out of the water, and keep your dogs out of the water as well.

We will now monitor the lake and take further samples. If samples exceed the Public Health Wales limits then further restrictions on lake use may be required. Then, only after two negative results will these restrictions be lifted.

 

28th May

Unfortunately we believe there is some blue green algae blooms on the lake. It has been reported to Natural Resources Wales and we are waiting for them to test if blue green algae is present. In the meantime whilst we are awaiting confirmation we will not be permitting any immersion sports / activities on the lake.
