Learn to surf

Adventure Beyond is well located to take full advantage of the consistent and world renowned surf in South and West Wales.

A little history

We have been introducing people to our Surf sessions since 1997. Our Surf sessions are delivered by experienced and trained Instructors, some of whom have travelled to destinations such as California, Western Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, the Canaries and Western Europe in search of the perfect wave. Despite all the travelling, they keep coming back to West Wales to take advantage of the year-round Atlantic rollers.

Our Surf Sessions

We will meet you at the beach where we will be provided with a winter wetsuit and once we've had a warm-up we'll discuss the basic physics of surfing. Our Surfing sessions are great for all abilities, and best suited for those age 7 and up. We will start you off by teaching you the basics skills to surfing and explain water safety at the beach. It is not possible for everyone to get standing on their first session, as we are all slightly different and waves are not all ways perfect. But by the end of the session you will have a great understanding of surfing this will allow you to rent a board next time and put every thing you know to fruition.

Getting Started

This is ideal for a fun day out with friends, a birthday party, or a stag / hen do!

On the beach we'll start off with an introduction and safety briefing. Then we will work through the 3 stages of getting you onto your feet on the board. For each separate stage we will practice on the beach, then try out our skills in the waves;

Paddling for a wave and catching it.

"Riding Prone" - gathering speed and stability, and surfing whilst lying flat.

The "Pop Up" - getting to your feet without losing speed or balance.

You will soon learn that it's all about timing and balance, and it will take time to master - you will have your own share of 'wipe outs' on the way. But don't worry, it's all part of the fun.

Walking on Water!

Surfing really does have a steep learning curve so don't be surprised if you're not standing up straight away. Your Instructor is at hand throughout the session to give encouragement and help you achieve better rides. It may be that you're trying to 'pop' too early or that you're too far forward on the board, or maybe that your wave selection needs work. Don't worry, our experts will help you all the way. And don't be disappointed if you don't quite stand up on your Surf session with us. We aim to teach you enough so that you can continue working towards this goal the next few times you get out in the waves with a board.

Questions and answers

Can we do the Activity in the rain?

Yes - Surfing can be done in the rain. 

Can we change our Activities?

Yes, you would just need to let us know in advance, and the more notice you give us the more flexible we can be.

Can I wear contact lenses or glasses?

Yes: people do where contact lenses and say its ok but I don't where them so just go on others word. Glasses can be worn but its best to have a leash attached. If they fall off or get broken we can not be held responsible. If they are important to your driving think wisely before taking on session.

What group sizes can you accommodate?

Large and small groups can be accommodated please contact us for more information.

Do we need to be able to swim?

No it is unnecessary we provide you with enough floating kit that all you need to do is move your arms to move around. 

Do you have equipment to fit all sizes?

Yes - we have a wide range of sizes in all of our equipment. Before you head out on your activities our Instructors will ensure that all equipment fits correctly and they'll make any necessary changes.

What if I have a medical condition?

Our Instructors are trained to deal with different situations, so we can easily accommodate people with diabeties, asthma, mild epilepsy, autism and more. Please contact us if you have any questions. If you require a waterproof container to bring medication please let us know in advance.


The wetsuits are made out of Neoprene which is a synthetic rubber.

We clean the Wetsuits with disinfectant which:

  • Is NON-toxic, NON-staining, NON-tainting and a NON-irritant at all working dilutions
  • Is kind to the environment, as it is water-based and biodegradable

Improving surfers

Our Instructors have a wealth of experience and knowledge to share, which goes beyond basic introductory sessions. If you have some experience but need a helping hand, or want to change boards, or want to move onto surfing reefs or river mouths or start turning on green waves, we can offer low-ratio surf coaching sessions with British Surfing Association trained coaches, video feedback and a large helping of local knowledge and experience.
