Bank Holiday fun for kids – Sun & Swell forecast

August 20, 2008

While our winter kids clothing range is being manufactured is gives us a rare opportunity here at Grommies escape the office and spend some quality time down the beach.

The surf has improved over the last few days (for an up to date forecast visit WindGuru or Magic Seaweed) and sunshine is forecast for the coming bank holiday weekend – so an ideal excuse to hit the beach.

If you are looking for something to do with the kids over the bank holiday – there are some great surf schools here on the Gower. GSD have surfing lessons at Caswell beach whilst at Llangennith you have Welsh Surfing Federation Surf school.

Or visit the BSA website (British Surf Association) for their list of approved UK surf schools.
