ABOUT THE WEEKEND:
You will be learning to surf with our top Surfing GB & ISA qualified instructors in our girls only Surf Sistas sessions – your tuition includes the rental of a surfboard and wetsuit. We will cover the basics of learning to surf including how to position yourself on the board, catch waves and pop up, and importantly how to understand the conditions and stay safe in the water.
Saturday morning we meet at 9.30am aiming to be in the water by 10am. We run two in-water tuition sessions with a break for lunch inbetween. Bring your own packed lunch or check out Eddy’s cafe at the beach to re-fuel.
On Saturday evening we usually all head to the village pub for some well deserved post-surf food!
Sunday morning we are back in the water for more coaching, then during/after lunch you will have the opportunity for some Q&A with your coaches and 1:1 advice on what to keep working on. We will also head to the local surf shop PJs for a chat about surf equipment, so if you have some questions about surfboards this is your chance to get the lowdown from some local surf legends .. no such thing as a silly question here!
We expect to be finished by 2.30-3pm so plenty of time for anyone that needs to make train or bus connections in Swansea.
With our group size limited to 10 per course you won’t get lost in the crowd, but be sure to reserve your spot early, don’t miss out!
If you have surfed before or are coming with a friend who has, check out our improver weekends, they run side by side.
There are some great accommodation options in Llangennith and the surrounding area from a campsite right by the beach to eclectic B&Bs & bunkhouses. Llangennith is a very small village though and popular in the summer so we recommend booking as early as you can.
Hillend Campsite – Right behind the dunes at the beach, you couldn’t ask for a better location! Good shower & camping facilities, a camp shop for basics and Eddy’s cafe too!
Blas Gŵyr is a luxury Boutique B&B and cafe right in the heart of the village. Delicious breakfasts and a lovely place to lay your head after a hard days surf.
The Kings Head – Want to be close to the pub? Probably best to stay at the pub then! The Kings Head has some lovely modern rooms tucked away behind the car park and out of earshot of the pub. Another excellent breakfast.
