Visiting South Wales?

Cressey's Surf Academy is based near the beaches of Porthcawl, about 25 mins outside of Cardiff, but offers lessons all along the South Wales coast wherever the best conditions are for that day - we go where the waves

We offer surf packages that include food and accommodation at fantastic locations and great prices to suit every budget. Visit our Surf Packages page for details of options with the 4* Vale Resort Hotel, just down the road at Hensol. Cabin and dorm options near Margam and close to the beaches are also available upon request.

Porthcawl is the nearest large seaside town to Cardiff - the capital city of Wales, and boasts several beaches, a fun fair, Grand Pavillion Theatre, Outdoor Activity pursuits (including surfing!), Go Karting, and plenty of seaside activities such as donkey rides and fish and chip shops! It is also almost equal distance from the main cities of Swansea and Cardiff.
