Porthcawl

Surf Trip + Lessons

We run surf trips to Porthcawl (one of our closest surf spots). Our last trip was with 35 women including newcomers, regulars, beginners and intermediate surfers. The weather delivered giving us a sun-filled day of surf lessons, a social surf and beachside picnic. 100% of our survey respondents said they made a new friend that day which was so great to hear.

Campus Pool

Skate Sessions

For those who like to be on a board on land when they can't get in the sea, we run skate socials and lessons throughout the year. Earlier this year we headed to a Campus Pool skate park for a women's only evening. Tricks were learnt, friends were made and there was always someone there to cheer you on and help you back up.

The Wave

Sister Surf Sessions

We've been heading to the Sister Surf Sessions at The Wave since they first began. It's a day of women's only surfing in Bristol's inland wave pool with skating, yoga, music and great food. There is always so much support for each other both in and out of the water. We couldn’t think of a better way to spend a day.

Pub Social

Pub? Yes please. As tricky as it is to find seats for a club this big, we love a pub meet. It's a great way to get to know new people without having to cling onto a surfboard and think about pop-ups at the same time. This photo is from a pub trip in March where, despite a poorly-timed dump of snow, over 50 women came together for pizzas and pints. A lot of people had never been to a BGSC event before so it was great to see everyone having such a laugh and leaving with new pals.

Spring Classic

Festival Trip

We had the absolute best time camping in Devon at Spring Classic Festival with a huge group of gals from the club. The ocean was flat as a lake but we were partying, swimming, singing and taking thai chi, yoga and breathwork classes. We also ate a lot of excellent food (thank you bao truck).
