Hell's Mouth Surf School

Surf School in North Wales

We ran surf lessons almost every day through Whit week. It looks like demand will keep us at the beach most days through the summer holidays too!

May 23rd. We ran our first lessons of 2021 last week under our existing Covid protocols. Whit week bookings are now filling up fast and the summer holidays are also looking busy. Please contact us via e-mail to [email protected] for the smoothest booking procedure.

Hello 2021. We are on schedule to open from May 15th this year. The successful alterations to our Normal Operating Procedures will, once again, be in place to minimise Covid risk. We are already busy taking bookings so, if you have a particular date in mind, it could be worth booking it early.

[10/16/20]   Friday 16th October. It looks like we are going to have to close the Surf School for the winter a little early this year. Travel to Wales is now discouraged and, as most of our pupils are English, we feel it would be irresponsible to encourage visitors to travel here to do a surf lesson. Let's hope next year is more straightforward. Thank you to all our customers this year.

[09/04/20]   🙂 It is always good to get messages like this: "Thank you for the amazing experience my 12 and 10 year old had today with their very first surf lesson. It was so well run and the guy who ran it was so encouraging to the younger kids who took part. It was by far the highlight of our holiday and we will definitely be back when we return to beautiful Llyn again".

Friday 21st August. Stormy conditions today had the school seeking shelter in Abersoch. We always find the most beginner friendly conditions for our lessons.

25/07/2020

Saturday 25th July. We are doing lessons again. From 1st August we will be offering pupils the chance to join a mixed group as in previous years. A household group of 5 or more will still be able to book the entire lesson if a slot is available.

[06/27/20]   Saturday 27th June. It looks like we can offer surf lessons this summer, from July 10th, with a few changes to normal operating procedures. The most important change is that we are only going to give lessons to an existing household group. If you already mix with your fellow surf pupils we can teach you as a group. We have set the minimum price for the lesson at £175 which is the equivalent of 5 people. If you are a bigger household we can take up to 8 at £35 extra per person. Obviously, that price of £175 can be for a group size of however many you want up to 5. Payment will be taken at the time of booking over the 'phone or by transfer and pupils will need to supply us with waist size/dress size/height details so that we can load the van with the correct wetsuits. You will not be required to come to the shop and can meet the instructor in the beach car park. More details to follow.

[04/12/20]   April 12th. Well, who saw this coming? Strange times indeed. The surf School is all prepared and ready to go this summer but it will all depend on whether we see a reduction in infection rates and corresponding lifting of restrictions. Obviously the health and safety of our participants and instructors is our main consideration. We will keep you posted via this page and the website page.

The School is now closed until spring. We have a cold weather forecast this week and it has become increasingly uncomfortable on bare hands to keep going. We thank all our pupils for their support this year and look forward to seeing you again next year.

21/10/2019

We are hoping to offer surf lessons during this October half term holiday. Call West Coast Surf Shop for dates and availability. 01758 713067

Monday 12th August. It was another glorious morning at Porth Neigwl/Hells's Mouth today. The surf was perfect for our Surf School again.

01/08/2019

Thursday 1st August. The summer is well underway and we have been busier than ever. The weather has often been sunny and warm and waves have been consistent. This was today. Book a lesson soon.

10/04/2019

Due to the ongoing, good, spring weather we have decided to start our surf school season earlier than usual this year. We are now taking bookings for 1.00pm on Sunday 28th April.

21/03/2019

Spring is here and it is time to look forward to a summer of surfing. We hope to start lessons in early May. Our current press advertising features our surf school.

It's been a busy week of surf in wild and windy conditions, well done to everyone who braved the stormy bank holiday weekend!

25/08/2018

Saturday 25th August. The Bank Holiday got off to a good start with sunshine and great beginner waves. Our Surf School is booked up until Thursday but try us in case of cancellations. Pic: By Eilir, our instructor today.

04/08/2018

Saturday 4th August. There has been plenty of surf for lessons this last week. The water is warm and we still have some places left over the next two weeks.

22/07/2018

The summer teaching season is now in full swing. The mixed group on Tuesday's lesson having a great time at Porth Neigwl.

Junior 3 Day Surfing Improver Course.
We are planning a 3 day improver surfing course during the summer holidays. It is aimed at Children from 8 to 18 years old who have some existing surfing knowledge (had at least one lesson or equivalent experience).
We have pencilled in 20, 21 and 22nd August and it costs £70 per pupil and each lesson lasts 1 ½ hours. Let us know if you are interested.

06/06/2018

The small waves that we have had for over a week now have been perfect for our surf school. Alan Espie sent us this picture of his family enjoying a surf lesson - they enjoyed it so much they had 2 lessons!

14/05/2018

Here we go! The first lesson of 2018 is scheduled for next weekend. The sea has warmed up enough and our instructors are keen to start. We still have some space on most days through Whit week..

06/04/2018

Friday 6th April. This is a graph showing both an average maximum and average minimum sea temperature through the year here in Abersoch. This year we were as low as 6c throughout March so have some way to bounce back toward the minimum line! We can do surf lessons above 9c and this can be as early as mid April but I think it will be mid May this year.

[03/02/18]   We have been asked to contribute to a Welsh Coastal Life magazine artice so if any of you have two minutes to answer the following questions it would be much appreciated. We seem to get two types of surf school pupils. One is to actually learn to surf and one is just to have a ‘surfing experience’ while on holiday. (Could you send any answers as a message to us please)

Why did you decide to have a surf lesson:

What skills/ experience of surfing, swimming or other watersports did you have previously:

What did you enjoy most about the lesson:

How much did you feel you learned:

Would you recommend it to others:

Has it given you a passion for the sport:

Have you surfed since:

Have you bought any surf equipment since:

Do you intend to surf again:

Would you surf by yourself or would your next surf be under the supervision of an instructor:

Saturday 19th August. Between the showers yesterday. Another happy group in our Hells Mouth Surf School. There should be plenty of surf into next week.

24/07/2017

The Coastal bus has a new timetable for 2017. Make sure you have a new one.

Remember to tell your contacts that the Llyn Coastal Bus has a new timetable for 2017. There are quite a few of the 2016 ones still around and are causing some missed buses!

Sunday 23rd July. The waves were perfect for our surf school again today.

16/07/2017

Sunday 16th July. Warm, sunny and perfect waves for the surf school today. There are still plenty of places during the summer but it is slowly getting booked up. Ring the shop or send us an e-mail if you fancy joining the fun.

28/05/2017

May has been excellent for surf and the water has slowly warmed up. We have been doing lessons all month and had plenty of happy learners this weekend too. Picture of today's group.

03/05/2017

The Spring Bank Holiday provided some lovely conditions for our first lessons of 2017. The sea is slowly warming up and we look forward to providing lessons every weekend until October. We also do lessons during the week if you can get 3 or more people off work! During school holidays we teach most days. Lessons remain £30 and include a board, wetsuit, boots and 2 - 2 1/2 hours with the instructor.

19/02/2017

The days are getting longer so it won't be long until the water stops cooling down! With warm spring weather the sea should warm quickly from it's late March low point and we hope to get the surf school up and running by early May.

Tuesday July 26th. We have been busy with the surf school all summer. Waves have been perfect for lessons (less so for better surfers). Here is the group from yesterday - doing a 'phones for you' commercial....
