Activity Highlights:

Join us for 1:2 beginner surf coaching in Porthcawl, Bridgend. We are a team of expert coaches, ready to take you from novice to pro in no time. We want to get you standing on your board in the first session, so bring your energy and enthusiasm!

Key Details

  • Suitable For: All ages and fitness levels
  • Experience Level: Absolute beginners or those working on fundamental wave-catching skills

Key Skills

Our lessons focus on developing core skills for beginners:

  • Mastering balance on the waves
  • Paddling techniques
  • Essential water safety knowledge

What to Expect

Our comprehensive lessons blend on-land and in-water instruction to ensure your success. Each session begins with a gentle beach warm-up, preparing your muscles for the thrilling experience ahead. Before you hit the water, our experienced Surf Coaches cover the basics, including safe board handling, paddling techniques, and crucial health and safety protocols.

In the water, your Surf Coach will first demonstrate the techniques, then guide you through each step as you practice and refine your skills. Once you’re confident with catching waves, we’ll bring you back to the beach to teach you standing techniques. Our goal is to have you upright on the water within your very first session.

Location

Join us at the stunning Porthcawl, Bridgend County, where the waves are inviting and the scenery is picturesque. Our prime location offers the perfect setting for beginners to learn and progress their surfing skills.

Our Surf Academy is based near the beaches of Porthcawl, about 25 minutes from Cardiff, but we offer lessons all along the South Wales coast. We’ll go where the waves are!

The main beaches we use are: Rest Bay, Coney (Sandy Bay), Aberavon, and Southerndown.

Frequently Asked Questions

In theory, anyone and everyone who can swim regardless of age. We tend to teach people from age 8 upwards.

If you are younger and keen speak to us first before booking so we can advise if a surf lesson is feasible for your age.

A decent level of fitness will help, but you don’t have to turn pro to enjoy surfing – the best surfer is the one having the most fun, even if that involves falling off a few times! If you’re interested, give it a go…

No experience is necessary, but you will need to be able to swim and feel fairly confident in the water. We use 50m as a good distance people should be able to comfortably swim before learning to surf. Beginners start in shallow water though, so we will work at a pace you feel comfortable with.

If you have your own board and wetsuit, bring them with you. If you don’t, suitable ones will be provided. You should bring a towel and swimsuit to wear underneath the wetsuit. Sunscreen and a warm top for after your surf are also not a bad idea, and possibly a bottle of water and small snack for when you’re done, as you can use up a lot of energy in the water.

Absolutely! We love working with groups, too. Scroll to the bottom of this page to view the rest of our options, including group surf lessons.

Lessons can be arranged for any time or day of the week, subject to availability. If you don’t see a time or date which suits you, just send the adventuro team a message in the online chat, and they will help to facilitate and alternative date which works for you and us.

We are based in Porthcawl, but teach down the South Wales coastline. We’d generally go to the beach with the best conditions for your ability at the time of your lesson – we go where the waves are!

The main beaches we use are: Rest Bay, Coney (Sandy Bay), Aberavon, and Southerndown.
