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.
