Welsh Surfing Federation School

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 is charged with the education of new surfers to the safe, enjoyable use of the sea and to environmental awareness.

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.

What Time Of Year?

The Surf School operates from April to October, full time during school summer holidays from the end of July to the beginning of September and at weekends outside of these times. Additional courses outside of these dates can also be arranged on request.
