Surfing in Porthcawl

Love surfing? Fancy spending this summer at the beach? Some of Wales' leading activity providers are seeking experienced and trainee surf instructors to help teach lessons on South Wales' beautiful Blue Flag beaches throughout the 2018 summer season.

Porthcawl-based activity providers Adventures Wales and Porthcawl Surf School are looking to recruit experienced and trainee surf instructors to help cope with the influx of people wanting to learn to surf in what Lonely Planet and The Independent have named one of the UK's best surfing destinations.

The destination is struggling to cope with its increased popularity as more and more people discover the quality and consistency of the waves produced here. Rest Bay in Porthcawl is an ideal surf beach as it picks up the swells created by storms in the Atlantic ocean.  These are the same swells that reach established surf destinations like Cornwall and Devon, but being just two and a half hours from London means you'll be in the ocean a lot sooner.

Adventures Wales are seeking a full time experienced surf instructor to teach lessons at Blue Flag Rest Bay between June and August. Those looking to apply for the position will need the following qualifications: A current NVBLQ Lifeguard award (or equivalent) and an Accredited Surfing Instructors Award.

If you have the relevant experience and qualifications you can email a short CV to

Porthcawl Surf School are also looking for experienced and trainee surf instructors. Porthcawl surf school pride themselves on their progressive lesson structure and have gained a reputation as a quality surf school. Their philosophy is to concentrate on teaching people everything you need to know in one lesson but they'll need to come back and put that knowledge into practice.  

If you're a capable surfer and are interested in becoming an instructor, you'll be able to get your Accredited Surfing Instructors Award while on the job. Send a short CV to
