Photos and Video

What better way to capture those special surf moments than having us there as your very own media crew? We will be there like proud hosts with pictures and a personalised highlights video included. We love surfing and the smiles it puts on everyone’s faces. We get a real buzz from putting together the highlights and sharing them with you after the trip. Who knows, maybe Quicksilver will sign you up? 😉

Photos and video are typically included in the day tours and multi-night trips only, but we can on request try and include a few pictures at least in activity only. It depends on our surf instructors as they are usually busy coaching over taking pics.

How Much Will A Surf Lesson or Surf Getaway Cost?

All our day or multi-night surf holidays and weekend packages are 100% tailor-made for you! So, we can create a Big Blue Adventure to suit specific budgets and what you would like to include for the perfect getaway. The more lessons, extra activities and package elements you include the more that package will cost. It also depends on your final numbers within the group, generally larger groups have a cheaper per person rate over smaller groups as there are more people to split the core package costs between. Best thing to do is request a quote – it costs you nothing to start the ball rolling and say hello, we can send a great package your way from there.


When you’re ready to book your surf lesson, day tour or surf holiday we simply start with a 30% non-refundable deposit to confirm it all. The final balance is typically required no later than 3 weeks before your activity or day tour, or 6 weeks for multi-night packages. Most customers pay by bank transfer, but we can also accept debit and credit card transaction upon request.

We can also make some changes between the deposit and the final balance payment. Such as amending a few dropouts / attendee increases, or making some package changes within reason. For further information, please do see our terms and conditions.

What To Bring

To take part in surfing all you need is:

  • Swimwear or spare underwear for under the wetsuit. Try and avoid boardies as anything baggy can be very uncomfortable under a wetsuit
  • A towel
  • Sun cream
  • Hat
  • Water (please try and avoid throw away single use plastic!)
  • Any medication you need to keep on you, such as an asthma pump

All the essential surf kit is included; wetsuits, gloves or hoods to suit the season and good learner boards. On our package day tours or holidays we also bring cosy towel changing ponchos, so you can use those instead of your bath towels.

Are meals & drinks included?

If you want them to be – then of course! We have some awesome spots perfect for a surf day out with great vibes. We can include lunch, a packed lunch or dinner after the surfing with drinks. It all depends on what type of meal you want, how much budget you have for the meal and free time available. We work with some amazing local establishments with tasty produce and can also add on extra food & drink experiences such as a Welsh gin tasting tour, brewery tour and more. We can work on this to fit the itinerary and plans!

Group Size

Minimum numbers are 10 people due to the cost to run a surf day tour or multi-night surf holiday.

Swimming Ability

While surf lessons are kept to shallower depths especially for beginners, it is required that you have a basic level of swimming and some confidence in the water for your own safety. Do contact us regarding this as we don’t want those low in confidence to shy away from an awesome experience. You don’t need to be a crazy adrenaline adventurer or an Olympic swimmer to enjoy a Big Blue Adventure!

Why We Love This…

“I love that Wales is such an unexpected surf destination to most, yet it has good swell and lush surf beaches. I have a soft spot for Rhossili Bay, the view blows me away each time and the beach is never too crowded with other surfers. The drive up to Rhossili is so picturesque, a small winding road with wild horses and sheep roaming freely. Can it get more Welsh than that?”
