There are few things more exhilarating than screaming down a powerful ocean wave. Speed, precision and fast reactions are essential if you’re going to tear up the wave face and finish with a spectacular airborne exit. Wales offers some of the best surf kayaking in the UK.

Wherever you choose to paddle, please be aware of your rights and responsibilities as a paddler and our disclaimer relating to the information contained in these pages.

Round South Wales's Gower and Pembroke are some of the best breaks, catching Atlantic groundswell. But the right conditions can give awesome waves on the Llyn Peninsula or Anglesey.

From surf forecasts to webcams, you’ll find links to the information you need in this section. You can find out about basic manoeuvres to try on your ride. Wales’ breaks are getting crowded, though, so make sure you know the rules of the road.
