In this camp, you will be staying in Villa Guest House Porthcawl.


During this camp, you will have a two-hour surf lesson that is tailored based on your skills and experiences with a guidance from an experienced and professional instructor. It shouldn't worry you if you have no surfing equipment because Cressey's Surf Academy will provide you a surfboard and wetsuit for you to use. All the surfboards are soft top foam boards, specially designed for those learning to surf. Lessons can be arranged for any time or day of the week, subject to availability. Cressey's Surf Academy is based in Porthcawl but the teaching will be down the South Wales coastline. You'd generally go to the beach with the best conditions for your ability at the time of your lesson - you'll go where the waves are.

Wetsuits are available in a range of styles and sizes for men, women, and children and are suitable for use during spring, summer, and autumn seasons. If you are new to surfing it is recommended that you take at least one formal surfing lesson before hiring equipment to try on your own. This is to ensure your own safety as well as the safety of those around you as waves and currents can get strong and waters and beaches very busy, especially in summer seasons. ll wetsuit and board hire is included in the costs of lessons along with insurance

If surfing on your own, please always ensure you are using a lifeguarded beach and that there are other surfers in the water with you or an adult friend is watching you from the beach to ensure your safety. Please use your common sense and do not attempt to surf further out or in conditions that are above your skill level. Cressey's Surf Academy is not liable for any accidents or damage that you, others, or the equipment may receive while in your possession on an equipment hire agreement. Any unreasonable damage to boards or wetsuits will be charged for upon return.


Ingemar Cressey


Cressey's Surf Academy is based near the beaches of Porthcawl, about 25 minutes outside of Cardiff but offers lessons all along the South Wales coast wherever the best conditions are for that day, you will go where the waves are.

The best surf spots in Wales can be found on the South East to South West Coast with a few good locations on the more exposed West side of the country. Cressey's Surf Academy mostly operates around the beaches found on the South East coast of Wales.

Once you have your surf skills under your belt, you may want to venture out further afield down the coast towards the Mumbles area of the Gower and down to Freshwater West in Pembrokeshire, famous as a location for Harry Potter and Robin Hood. Please make sure you check out local surf reports before you go and ensure you're surfing on a beach suitable for your level of ability, one with lifeguards where possible. You can have fun and explore new and better waves but stay safe and never surf anywhere on your own. All surf spots can offer great surf when it's on.

Surf Spots


Aberavon (nicknamed 'Aberheaven') by Port Talbot is not the most picturesque spot you're ever likely to surf but it is renowned for its ability to hold big swells and big logs.

Coney Beach

Coney Beach can offer a nice surf spot for beginners with a little swell and upon occasion for the more advanced. It works best on large SW swells when everywhere else is either too big or blown out.

Llantwit Major

Llantwit Major is a decent right-hand point break to the left of the beach.


Ogmore is a rivermouth break.

Rest Bay

Porthcawl boasts the most popular local surfing spots with Rest Bay busy with both beginners and experienced surfers most days because of its consistency and surprising quality on decent swells.


Southerdown is a beach break, with the reef on the right-hand side.
