Santa Surf 03.12.22

For our final surf meet up of 2022, we hosted a festive santa surf at Llangennith Beach. It was a chilly one to say the least but the atmosphere was nothing but sunshine. We had a hoot trying to surf in our santa hats and everyone came out beaming ear to ear. 

22 women booked onto lessons and plenty more joined for a 'social surf'. We were lucky enough to have Adams Williams himself along who brought his 'sister series' longboards with him for us to try.

Winter Surf Social 20.11.22

During what felt like a month of storms, our November surf meet found a small bit of shelter at Caswell Bay - though the hail still found us! This Caswell Bay takeover saw over 40 women in the water and 32 women booked onto lessons run by Progress Surf School. We had the good fortune at this surf meet to be joined by Adam Williams who brought his 'Sister Series' longboards for us to test.

The Wave Road Trip 9.10.22

We packed up our wetsuits and various boards to join women from across the country at The Wave in Bristol for their Sister Sessions. All 17 of us carpooled and headed down the M4 for laughs and lessons. It was so lovely to meet so many other women from other surf societies from around the country.

Beginner Bonza 24.09.22

Our busiest session to date! Our Beginner Bonza was designed to get as many newbies in the water at Llangennith at once - and we for sure successed. Progress taught over 50 women in the water that day, with more joining for a social surf. We wrapped up with a slow afternoon of chats, coffee and lunch in the sunny carpark.

First Surf Social 4.09.22

Nearly 40 women joined for a surf for our first beach meet-up, including 24 women booked onto lessons run by Progress Surf School. It was an incredible and almost tear jerking first event at Llangennith. Seeing our vision of a community of like-minded women gathering to get in the sea actually come into fruition was an indescribable feeling!
