Why surf?Have you ever tried surfing in Wales or just been in the sea? Yes? Then you’ll know the feeling you can get from this simple pleasure! If you have never been…then come on down…it’s super fun! Surfing is a sport for everyone, young and old. At Board Games our priority, second to your safety, is that you’re having fun! We aim to give you an experience that will leave you feeling happy but tired from all the laughter and newly learnt skills!
Why Board Games Surfing?We guarantee you’ll make a splash….surfing, bodyboarding or bodysurfing! We are passionate and enthusiastic about surfing and the coastal environment in Pembrokeshire. We really care for everyone that wriggles into a wetsuit and wants to get in the sea. We’ll ensure that despite being in a group environment you will get individual attention and tuition. If required, we can tailor a bespoke surf experience just for you or your group.
How we roll?From the moment you turn up at the beach you will be greeted by a member of our team who will take the time to find out your expectations and any previous surf experience that you may have. No need to worry if you’re a beginner surfer, we’ll soon have you feeling relaxed in the sea environment! We will teach you everything you need to know in easy bite-sized chunks so you don’t feel overwhelmed. Throughout your experience, you will have a dedicated, fully qualified and fully fun instructor close at hand.
What about kit?We supply all the kit and equipment you’ll need including a full winter steamer wetsuit, wetsuit boots and a surfboard or bodyboard too! If it’s a bit chilly out there we also have wetsuit hoods and gloves to keep you cosy and warm. Our team take safety equipment and a first aid kit down onto the beach. If you need to take anything to the beach with you no worries…we’ll have our handy bag with us! The only thing you’ll need is swimwear (to go under our wetsuits) and a towel. Oh and maybe some sunscreen!
Location, location?One of our favourite Pembrokeshire surfing locations is Newgale beach, a long sandy beach, situated to the north east of St Brides Bay. Westerly facing, it is ideally placed to catch the prevailing Atlantic swell. Its beach break is ideal for beginner and intermediate surfers alike.
Fantastic location (super weather helped), great instruction and one of the best 2 hours I have ever spent. Although I didn’t manage to stand and stay on the board (I am over 65!) it was still great fun. My teenage son soon got the hang of it but even he was exhausted by the end of two hours. We both slept well that night. Absolutely recommended.
