Surfing

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, working your needs around the tides, winds and height of the swell to ensure you have the best possible chance of riding a wave. You 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 basic skills so you can go off and practice them next time you have a board in your hand.

What to bring to your Session

Getting Started

This is ideal for a fun day out with friends, a birthday party, or a stag or 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 or kneeling.

- 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.

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.
