Catch your first ride on your stag do! Cardiff is a short car journey from Porthcawl, one of the finest surfing spots in Wales. Who needs Newquay when you've got the consistent, solid beach break of Porthcawl on your doorstep? Good for beginners, this spot is a great place to introduce the boys to the coolest watersport in the world.
No experience needed. It doesn't matter if you've never even seen a surfboard. Qualified instructors who take stag parties out every season will get you up to speed on the fundamentals and into the water in one session. Suck that beer belly in, roll a wetsuit on, grab a board and start paddling like Kelly Slater.
Surfing has shedloads of classic comedy moments. Laugh at your mates wobbling around on their boards and stacking it when they get too cocky! It takes timing, energetic paddling, and balance to pop up on a board - and stay on your feet. Crack it and experience the super sweet rush of catching your first wave and riding it right to the beach.
Head back to Cardiff for a few well-earned post-surf beers in the Brewery Quarter and impress the local ladies with tales of overhead waves and barrels.
