The Welsh Surfing Federation Surf School

The Welsh Surfing Federation Surf School is based in Llangennith, Gower, Wales.  It is a non-profit organisation that takes the role of fund raising to promote surfing in Wales. The WSF Surf School's role is to teach new surfers the safe, enjoyable use of the sea and to promote environmental awareness.

The Welsh Surfing Federation
The Welsh Surfing Federation is the governing body for surfing in Wales. It is responsible for promoting the sport by organising competitions and participation in other events to raise public awareness. The Federation also organises team selection for nationally represented competitions.  The W.S.F. owns the surf school.  To go to the federations home page for information about click here.

What Time Of Year?
The Surf School operates from spring to autumn, full time during the summer months and at weekends and by arrangement early and late in the season. 

So Why Have A lesson With The WSF?

We are the original Llangennith Surf School providing surf lessons since 1981.
We are the only surf school based in Llangennith.
Our Instructors are Surfing GB or International Surfing Association coaches, Beach Lifeguards and have been CRB/DBS checked.
We have female and male instructors.
We can provide surf lessons in Welsh.
All groups have instructors with two-way radio, mobile phone contact and first aid facilities.
We are the only non-profit surf school in Wales - all profit is used for the running of Welsh surfing.
As we are non-profit making we are much cheaper than other surf schools.
We offer the highest quality surf lesson.
We use Swell surfboards that are designed for beginners (some surf schools cut cost by using cheaper, less buoyant surfboards that are much more difficult to learn to surf on)
We have summer and winter wetsuits plus boots so you will be warm whatever the weather or time of year.
We offer full two hour instruction
(we don't count getting changed into a wetsuit or a drive to the beach as part of lesson time).
We have a trolley to help you get your boards to the beach.
We are proud of our reputation for running lessons only if there is surf big enough to ride waves.
We always rearrange lessons if the surf is too small.
We offer two lessons per day and as many lessons as you need.
Lessons can be as formal or as relaxed as you want (within our safety rules).
We specialise in teaching absolute beginners and people who have tried surfing but need some help.
We get results - people who hire, just have a go themselves and then come to us tell us so.
We teach at one of the most beautiful beaches in Wales.
Llangennith is the safest beach, and the only one that has reliable surf, on Gower.


Don't just take our word for it.
