I've had lots of lessons through Aber Adventures, from total beginner, catching green waves, and even some post-injury recovery. Most recently I took my partner (who had only surfed a couple of times before) and once again I was struck with how skilful the coaches are; giving carefully observed, thoughtful help and advice, educating people on the safety and etiquette...

Brilliant hire experience. 2 soft boards and a wetsuit. Simon gave free advice on the best place to surf at Ynslas Corner, Borth and was helpful even though really busy with setting up for a surf lesson. The teenagers in our party surfed for 5 hours on a half day hire. Calls and emails are always answered as soon as... More

We had a great morning on the stand up paddleboards in Borth. Simon was a great instructor and kept a very close eye on my 10yr old nephew - and was incredibly supportive. He and my brother have not stopped talking about the lesson - which is great value. I've had other SUP lessons in the past - but I... More

We used Aber adventure for a 2 hour primary school lesson. Unbelievable fun for both adults and kids. Perfect wetsuits and boots provided for all sizes. Fab boards and brilliant down to earth staff. We had such an amazing time with many memories made. Thank you. Nikki ( Norbury )

Simon and all the instructors at Aber Adventures, are totally dedicated and really know what they are talking about. They are passionate about surfing and expert at it. They give way more to a session than I have found anywhere else, by offering warm up and down techniques, advice for training away from the surf; and are watching you constantly... More

Just back from Easter break in Wales. Booked a surf lesson for my 4 kids aged 16, 15, 14 and 10. They absolutely loved it and would definitely recommend it. Simon the instructor was great with them - very patient and helpful. They've now got the bug and want to try again.

Simon was brilliant and so patient with the kids. He tried his very best to accommodate another lesson but is just too popular. We were particularly impressed with the way he dealt with and prevented a potential melt down of the youngest of our group who ended up as the best surfer in the lesson.

Thank you for the lovely feedback. So glad they all had such a good time. They all did really well and with a bit of help and encouragement, the youngest one was soon surfing without a care in the world. Thank you again. More

My 19 and 11 year old had an intermediate lesson with Simon today. They can both surf but are at very different levels and abilities. Simon watched their surfing and picked up on points they needed to develop individually. I was really impressed with his insight and ability to ensure some immediate improvement and to give them things to practise.... More

Fantastic for surfing lessons. Easiest way to contact them is to text the mobile number, lessons are great fun and good value for money with everything you really need included in the price. Be prepared to travel up and down the beach to catch the best waves or the right point of the tide. Be in good time, as it... More

My first surf lesson - brilliant. Simon is an excellent teacher - patient, encouraging, professional and good-humoured. The kit and location is excellent - everything is provided so you can just rock up. You end up feeling vigorous and invigorated, and thoroughly chuffed.
