Fantastic instructors and great fun
Always wanted to try SUP and I can highly recommend. Had the most fantastic morning with my daughter learning this new sport. I was grinning from ear to ear throughout even when I fell in 3 ( or was it 4) times. Can't wait to have another go.


Surfing and SUP lessons
Excellent people, superb instruction, great kit, beautiful scenery! What’s not to like! If you decide to take surfing lessons in Pembrokeshire Outer Reef is the place to go


Great fun and well organized
My sons and other family members had a great time - everything was well organized and the staff was very helpful in ensuring even the beginners could get on the board and have a good time. They all enjoyed so much they booked another session later the same week!


We’ve just returned from our holiday in Pembrokeshire and the highlight of our holiday was the paddle boarding. We had an amazing time and it was great fun. We will definitely be booking it again when we visit Pembrokeshire as it was such a fun experience.


Great experience
My two teenage grandchildren really enjoyed their afternoon supping from Stackpole quay. The instructor made the experience great fun whilst teaching them and guiding them along the cliffs to Barafundle. Definitely the highlight of their stay and worth every penny.


3rd Summer of surfing with Outer Reef
I booked my children and nieces in for surf lessons. We also had friends staying with their three children (youngest was 7). They all had a great time. The instructors are always really great with them, encouraging and supportive. We'll be back in a few weeks time!


Feedback for "Surfer Girl Weekend" - Great fun, professional and inspiring instructers, laid back atmosphere and most importantly - plenty of standing up action. Seb is a great teacher, very patient and lots of attention to detail. Thank you for the good vibes! Many thanks for an excellent weekend, I'm recommending it to all my girlfriends. A great opportunity and as soon as my girls are old enough, I'll be getting them in the water too.


To Dean, Alex said he had the best day of his life on Friday at his surfing lesson, so we hope to see you on Wednesday 29th August. Will phone you at 9am Jan x


Hi Dean, Emma and team I just wanted to say thanks again for the lessons I had with you last weekend. The lessons were really well structured, the instructor-learner ratio and value for money were excellent and it was all so much fun.Jo and Tom are great instructors and their enthusiasm was infectious - I've definitely been bitten by the surfing bug and can't wait to get out again! thanks again take care.


Sorry I have not emailed earlier to say a big thank-you to all the people running the women's surf weekends. as you can tell i was on one of your women's surf courses in the summer and really enjoyed myself. I am now the proud owner of a beautiful 7'9" bic minimal and I feel more and more confident every time I go surfing. I try to go surfing as often as I can but it is difficult living in North Wiltshire and as you might know its not very close to any good surf beaches! :( Standing up is becoming more frequent and being dumped in the water is becoming less frequent! yay!

Anyway just mainly wanted to say THANK-YOU for a great weekend and the encouragement to buy a board and feel as if I almost know what I am doing when in the water!

Thank-you again.


Hi! Just thought I’d send you an email to say THANK YOU SO MUCH!! for the surfing weekend prize. I had an excellent time, and Emma-Mary and Dean at Outer Reef are great. They looked after us so well. We stayed in a lovely B and B near the beach with a great host, and on Saturday night we went out to a Regatta, and ended up with a midnite boat trip which was amazing! Emma is a great teacher - I learnt more with her in the first lesson than I did in my weekend in Polzeath! She taught us how to spot a set of waves, how to know whether there'll be good surf watching the weather on TV, all about isobars, and that kind of stuff really helps when you're out there. I stood up loads; it was so exhilarating I am now hooked for life! And the beach is great, no crowds so you can surf to your hearts content! We are planning on going back up to Outer Reef before the summer is out! So again, thank you so much, it was excellent. If you ever want me to try out other surfing destinations for you, just let me know! Sarah

Hi Dean+Emma and all Outer Reef team,
Just like to thank you for our hoodies last night, there well cool, and we had a really good lesson. thanks again, from Kirk and Clara Lester


We are writing to you to thank you for letting us have a great time at Broadhaven. We both really enjoyed surfing, and we wish we could do it again. We both stood up on our boards for a whole wave. We also enjoyed the game where we had to swim out to sea and our partners had to come and rescue us. We both think surfing was the best.

Joshua Preston & Mikey Thirsk

Thankyou very much for taking us surfing, we really enjoyed it. We have never been surfing before so it was a wonderful experience for us both.

Matthew Rivers & Andre Jones

Thank you so much for making my time in Wales enjoyable
and fun. Surfing was great. Thank you for encouraging me to stand up on the surf board and praising me when I did. I enjoyed surfing, it was excellent. I learnt how to stand up on my board and how to body surf.


Hi I'm Hannah Brooks i just want to say thank you and you're surf dude's for teaching me and my friend's how to surf,it was great fun as i leart how to stand up.

Hannah Brooks

I'd like to say thanks for teaching me surfing, you were a wicked teacher unfortunately I couldn't stand off because I kept slipping off I learnt a lot! I really like to do it again so you can help even more so I can stand up. Suring was wicked next year are going to love it.

James Burridge (A millbrook Year 6 pupil)

Thanks for giving us a great surfing lesson in Broadhaven.The wetsuites were really hard to get on! You must of got well bored waiting for us to get dressed! You have so many surfboards, we guess its quite handy having a shop right next to the beach. The lesson was really cool. We liked the game where you had to rescue your partner, it was a bit like baywatcth! As we said, thanks for the lesson. Even though we couldn't stand up (and when we did we fell off) it was a great lesson and we all enjoyed ourselves.
