Ladies Adventure Activity Holidays in Pembrokeshire
WOMEN'S SURF AND PADDLE BOARD WEEKEND RETREATS IN PEMBROKESHIRE, WALES
This year we are running five Women's Surf & SUP Retreats in Pembrokeshire, West Wales. Our Women's weekends are aimed at both the complete beginner, who may have never picked up a surfboard before and intermediate surfers who want some education and advice on all aspects of the sport such as performance analysis and development of specific maneuvers. Whilst most importantly having lots of fun and meeting like-minded people!
We would like to thank all the women who took part in our 2022 weekends and hope you all had as much fun taking part as we did running them. It was great to see so much mutual support and encouragement within the growing surf and SUP community.
We have been running our Women's Weekends for over 16 years and have developed a fantastic team of SLSGB Qualified Lifeguards and ISA Qualified Coaches who between them have over 30 years of experience coaching all levels of surfers and paddle boarders.
Throughout the weekend you will take part in activities at some of Pembrokeshire's finest coastal locations. Our venues include Freshwater West Beach, Stackpole Quay, Tenby, Saundersfoot, and many more.
We tailor make our itineraries for each weekend taking into consideration the weather, surf forecast, and tides so that we can ensure all our guests have the best possible experience with us.

Frequently Asked Questions
Women’s Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! All of our lessons and packages include FREE wetsuit hire.
Let us know what dress size you wear (Women’s 6 - 20).
Of course you can! If you only have a shortie or are unsure if it still fits you (don't worry it happens!), let us know what size you are anyway and we can bring you a suit just in case.
- A swimming costume/shorts
- A beach towel
- Some flip flops or shoes to walk over the pebbles (if needed)
- Any medication you may need (eg. Asthma inhaler)
- Warm clothes to change into afterwards
- A big smile and a sense of adventure
SUP: For ease, we recommend using one of ours. They are all top of the range O’shea, Jobe and Finla boards.
Surf: If you have your own board you are more than welcome to use it but we do recommend one of our Foam boards as they really help when you are learning.
SUP: No, you don’t need shoes, bare feet grip very well to our boards. If your trip is from Stackpole Quay, we recommend bringing some shoes that you can leave in a bag at the Quay as there are a few stones to walk over to get to the water's edge.
Surf: You may want to bring some shoes to walk over the pebbles at our surf beaches. These will be left on the beach while we are in the water so please dont bring your most treasured shoes!
The beauty of watersports is that anyone can give them a go! We have taken people on the water from every walk of life imaginable. All we ask is that you can swim at least 25m unaided as this is for your safety.
Yes, in most cases you can absolutely still come along to our weekends. All of our instructors take ‘rescue bags’ out on the water with them so any medications can go into this bag for the duration of the activities. If you would like to discuss this with us further, please drop us an email and a member of the team will contact you.
We do ask that you can swim at least 25m unaided in order to join us on any one of our sessions.
Your accommodation will be well signposted with Outer Reef signage for your arrival and you can check in from 4pm. The following day your team of instructors for the week will meet you just outside your accommodation at 9am for a meet & greet.
Most of our accommodation providers offer self catering facilities so you can make your own breakfasts. For lunches we recommend packed lunches or you can buy lunch at our location venues which all offer options for food. We will book a lovely pub for Saturday evening so the whole group can enjoy a meal together.
Of course you can! The majority of women who come along on our weekends come solo. We want to connect you with like minded ladies who enjoy similar activities!
Pembrokeshire and the locations we use for our activities are quite remote. However we can offer advice and recommendations for local public transport options, just get in touch with us prior to your arrival. Once everyone has arrived for the weekend, we recommend car sharing as location venues can be busy.
All our water based activities are subject to weather and swell conditions. We want to make sure you have the best possible experience on the water with us so we will email you the week before your arrival with a rough schedule based on the forecast and will fill in any gaps at the meet & greet.
Freshwater West or Manorbier Beach
Stackpole Quay, Tenby North Beach or Saundersfoot Harbour
Our locations do not have changing facilities so we recommend wearing your swimming costume under your clothes. Tenby North beach has a cold water public shower that is free to use. All other locations do not have shower facilities. We recommend bringing a towel robe or Dry Robe to change after your session.
All of our locations have toilet facilities.
Yes! You can leave your car keys etc in our vans or our lock ups (depending on the location). Outer Reef does not take responsibility for any items left and we do have limited space so please don’t bring your diamond jewellery and massive overnight bags!
1.5hr - 2hrs
Don’t worry, we understand these things happen.
If you cancel more than 3 weeks before your arrival date, we are able to give you a full refund.
If it is less than 3 weeks before, we will endeavour to fill your spot. If we are unable to do so, we will issue a voucher for the value of the activities which you can spend in one of our stores or on activities in future. Unfortunately we are unable to refund the accommodation.
We have a full COVID refund policy in place, so if you test positive or have to self isolate, we can offer you a full refund so you can book with peace of mind.
Please note: we will need a copy of your positive result before we can issue your refund.
