Cressey's Surf Academy is a mobile surf school, offering public and private surf lessons for ages 8+, for surfers of all levels. We are able to cater for large groups, or private sessions including 1:1 or 1:2 bookings for more personalised coaching. We are based at Rest Bay beach, Porthcawl but also teach at Aberavon Beach, Port Talbot in South Wales.


We are an inclusive surf school, and a Wave Project Cymru charity partner, experienced at delivering sessions for those with special educational needs and disabilities.


We run one off sessions for those looking for an introduction to surfing, or longer courses for people looking to develop their surf skills and confidence further. Surfs Up! Summer Holiday sessions just £30 a day now booking!


We offer excellence in instruction, flexibility in bookings, quality in customer service, and a passion for surfing with multiple opportunities for progression. Contact us for an informal chat on how we can best meet your surfing needs!
