There are a wide selection of beaches suitable for learning to surf in Gower, many within a 10 minute drive from the cottage. Rhossili and Llangennith beaches are particularly well suited to surfing and several surf schools operate in the area. The surf schools cater very well for those completely new to the sport and it is often the case that beginners learn to stand in their very first lesson!
The WSF surf school is the only surf school permanently based on Llangennith beach. The surf school is owned and operated by the Welsh Surfing Federation who are the governing body for surfing in Wales. It specialises in teaching beginners. 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.
