This season, we're thrilled to announce five exclusive Women's Surf & SUP Retreats nestled in the picturesque landscapes of Pembrokeshire, West Wales. Our Women's weekends cater to a diverse audience, welcoming both absolute beginners—those taking their first steps on a surfboard—and intermediate surfers seeking insights into various facets of the sport, including performance analysis and mastering specific maneuvers. Most importantly, it's an opportunity to revel in the joy of surfing and connect with like-minded individuals!

We extend our gratitude to the incredible women who participated in our weekends last year. We trust that your experience was as enjoyable as our journey in organizing these events. Witnessing the camaraderie and encouragement within the flourishing surf and SUP community was truly heartening.

For over 16 years, we've been curating memorable Women's Weekends, fostering a team of dedicated SLSGB Qualified Lifeguards and ISA Qualified Coaches. Together, they boast an impressive 30 years of collective experience coaching surfers and paddleboarders across all skill levels.

Embark on an adventure across some of Pembrokeshire's most stunning coastal destinations throughout the weekend, including Freshwater West Beach, Stackpole Quay, Tenby, Saundersfoot, and more. Our itineraries are meticulously crafted, considering the weather, surf forecasts, and tides. This ensures that each weekend is tailored to provide our guests with the most exceptional experience possible.

Join us for a weekend filled with excitement, learning, and the sheer joy of riding the waves in the company of a supportive and vibrant community!

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.

We use various accommodation providers across the South Pembrokeshire area including lovely country houses on the Stackpole Estate and hotel style seaside accommodation in Saundersfoot and Tenby. Most of our accommodation has self catering facilities. Please note, some accommodation will be shared.

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!

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.
