Gower surfing, Gower stay & surf weekend for £120 pp based on a group of 2 to 3 people only

Arrive Friday after work or early Saturday morning dump your gear off at the shack and go surf!!  We provide a surfing lesson then ability to practice all weekend (Sat & Sun)  We provide all the equipment required and the necessary coaching and safety information to get you up and riding.

The accomodation is basic, but based near the beaches, local pubs and looks out over Gower fields a perfect setting to have a barbecue or fire at the end of a long days surfing. However, it must be noted that being on Gower it a quiet family based area so would not suit or put up with loud parties and anti social behaviour, for that type of weekend its best to stay in Swansea.

Australia: warm water, warm weather, big surf! written by Tom 'O' @gowersurfing

With international travel becoming easier and more convenient than ever, it has never been a better time to take up the awesome sport of surfing and allow it to drag you to every corner of the earth. Australia's booming economy and friendly atmosphere should make it a top contender on anyone's bucket list of countries to visit.

Cheap accommodation starting at just $100 a week can be found all over Australia's east coast, not to mention most of them located within miles of a full firing beach break! However If your looking for a little more freedom in your travels then simply rent out a van from one of the many camper van hiring companies, at a surprisingly low cost, and hit the road for weeks or even months of full surfing action!

I spent the majority of my trip working and surfing around the East Coast, from Sydney at the heart of New South Wales, to Noosa Beach in Queensland, and there was never a shortage of waves! But don't worry if your budget isn't exactly flexible, with easy fruit picking and gardening jobs available for all backpackers it becomes very easy to replenish depleted traveling funds, and get back on the road for another surfing adventure!

The mellow forgiving waves of the UK where my perfect training ground to prepare me for the high energy reef and beach breaks of the land down under. I would recommend everyone to take up surfing! And find out where it can take you! 01a05c894696eed106d3b893fdef797289028dcbae

Wow, what an honour to turn on the TV for the kids and there was our office staring back at us. Yes the gorgeous Caswell Bay near Mumbles village and only 5 miles from Wales sole Premier league city of Swansea.

Good Morning ITV reporter Nick Dixson was on the beach getting his feet wet and when asking a beach visitor about the pulls of Caswell she described as an "outdoor playground' perfect for children and families.

    Oahu, Hawaii.

    • Perfect_righthand_point_peeling_at_lani_
      I love Hawaii, it's that simple. Every wave tests you and your ability. I truly believe that if one is to be a surfer he/she must travel to the home of surfing to sample it's delights at least once.
