Pembrokeshire Surf & Sup Club

Dean Gough from Outer Reef Surf & Sup centre & Wyndham Williams, Sport Pembrokeshire's Active Young People Officer explains the background to the programme;

"After the last 10 year's of success with more than 1250 club members & Awards from the National Parks for a sensitive approach to recreational activities, the Outer Reef Surf Education Programme is now signing up for our autumn program. The next six week is aimed at beginners, intermediate & advanced as more and more students are super eager to learn & develop their new & existing skills adding towards their qualifications &logbooks," he said.

"This is still a new and exciting project for us in Sport Pembrokeshire working with Outer Reef Surf & Sup Centre and the Surf Life Saving Association. 

"The aims of the programme are to encourage more participation from this particular age group in outdoor activities and get them hooked on sport. 

"But ultimately the aim is for students to complete the evening feeling confident and inspired as a result of their new skills. Hopefully some will choose to take their new skills further and look to become ISA Surf & Sup coaches or joining the RNLI as beach lifeguards."

The impact that the Surf Education Programme has had already made has been impressive. 

In two weeks' time, Sport Pembrokeshire will coordinate the running of 5 surf clubs at Greenhill and Milford Haven secondary & Tenby juniors school pupils embarking on a six week surf programme with Outer Reef surf & Sup school.

Pembrokeshire surf & sup centre

If the Stackpole Estate was formed by man, the beaches and coastline surrounding it have most definitely been shaped by nature. Wild, rugged and windswept, Stackpole’s coast is the jewel of Pembrokeshire.

Perennial perfection

Special places such as Barafundle Bay, Broadhaven South and Freshwater West have become famous for their picture-postcard beauty and their unbeatable locations.

Whatever the weather’s doing our coastline and beaches are great to visit. It’s enormously atmospheric when surging waves crash against the cliffs or when the sea mist rolls in, engulfing the coastline. Not even the rain can dampen the spirits at Stackpole!

Outside of peak holiday times, you’ll often have these wonderful places all to yourself. Standing on the solitary promontory of Stackpole Head it’s easy to imagine you’re the only person in the world. This is the stuff of which romantic novels are made.

Stackpole’s beaches

Barafundle Bay has its fair share of romantic charm with its secluded location. Only accessible on foot, it has the air of an undiscovered gem.

Nearby Broadhaven South is a great family-friendly beach, close to its adjacent car park whilst Freshwater West has become synonymous with a surfers paradise. Its dramatic and rugged landscape makes it one of the best beaches to visit all year round. It’s a little further from Stackpole but well worth jumping in the car to get to.
