Wales & Pembrokehire – The heart of the surf action in the UK!

Wales & Pembrokeshire, there has to be one place better than the rest. There is…. and that’s why Dean’s surf accommodation is based here in the heart of the action.

Pembrokeshire has some epic waves but talk to anyone who’s surfed this region and they’ll tell you this stretch of coastline boasts a high density of uncrowded, quality waves that work in a variety of conditions.

Tenby in Welsh means..( Dinbych-y-pysgod, meaning little town of the fishes or little fortress of the fish)

Tenby is a delightful little harbour town and seaside resort, and it would be difficult to find a setting more picturesque. Our Surf accommodation overlooks some of Pembrokeshire’s beautiful beaches and the town itself is home to many restaurants, shops, cafes and pubs all linked by cobbled streets.

Tenby became a fashionable holiday destination for both the Welsh and the English, and its attractions to the holidaymaker are just as obvious today, with the fantastic beaches stretching to the north, the west, and the south of the town.

Outer Reef Surf Centre is in a prime location in Wales, so whether the surf is small or big, just a short drive north or south we’ll get you to where the waves are happening. This means that there is almost always somewhere to surf, whatever your ability be it mellow beach breaks… heavy hollow reef breaks or rolling point breaks… you choose. Dean and our surf crew will advise you on were the best surf is for you ability on the day.

As a professional surfer and gymnast he gained a lot of experience and training for competition and improving performance, also realising that in all sport you can reach a performance plateau and then get stuck at a level, unable to progress. Certain skills can not be learned through experience alone.


“I studied sports a couple of years ago and worked with a lot of different teachers at schools (primary school and high school) also with trainers/instructors from different kind of sports, like swimming, windsurfing, surfing, basketball. And what I can tell about Deans performance at the Advanced coaching course, was fantastic and a super cool experience. No complicated stuff, short and clear explanations and always keeping the fun level. What I also liked was, that we repeated a lot practiced a lot and still had time to go out and check out the local villages and stuff with Dean and the crew. Dean is one of those guys who doesn’t need to proof his competence and authority, he gets it just by teaching and speaking and demonstrating exercises, the way he did. There was never any moment in the week, when I was bored or had the feeling, that he is just talking. A lot of information but very well delivered. Very professional and well organised. One of the best instructors I have seen so far! I defiantly pick up some of his styles and use them in my performance as well. Thanks for the awesome and informative and funny time.” – Owen

"I thought it was a very good mix of surf theory & practical.  So it was easy for me to get the most out of the coaching sessions. Also it was very flexible, so it was like learning and surfing and chilling.
Thank you for the coaching week. Cheers, Dan. "

Dan Williams, from the UK course in Portugal

"This really was a unique experience. The weeks before I was a bit stressed, because I thought the others guys in the group would be really good and a lot better then me . In reality though I calmed down immediately on arrival and the course was a fun mix of theory, practical  and humour. The way you taught us was motivating, fun and strict when you needed to be. Overall one of the best weeks of my life so far.” "

Giles from Hamburg course in the Algarve

"I hadn’t had any coaching before. I think it was fun, mixing everything up and later putting it back together so we could understand the process. The theory in the beginning was not so cool to learn but when we got in the water we understood it completely. it was a nice fun and cool coach course. "

Brian La Foux, from France, course in Fuerta
