The goings on in and around Bridgend

Surfing in Bridgend County

Given that this week officially marks the start of summer there's never been a better time to get down to Bridgend County in South Wales and try your hand at riding a Welsh wave or two. 

Surfing high up

We've got some of the very best surf schools in Wales, perhaps even the UK, in the form of Porthcawl Surf School and Cressey's Surf Academy, both of which run surf lessons out on the beautiful Rest Bay.

It may not be quite as popular as neighbouring Gower or Pembrokeshire but Bridgend County is thought of by surfing experts as one of the best spots in the UK, perhaps even as good as Newquay!

So why not consider booking a surf lesson today, or try one of the following watersports in Bridgend County...

Paddle surfing - Quite a new one that is growing in popularity - easy to learn and a fun way to explore the coastline this is a great family activity. 

Sea kayaking - A little more relaxing than some adrenaline fuelled activity, you can really take kayaking at your own pace and discover another side to the coast. 

Coasteering - At the complete other end of the 'adrenaline' spectrum, coasteering means scrambling along the coastal cliffs and jumping into the ocean below - very much one for thrill seekers.

    Bridgend County

    Just two and a half hours from London, Bridgend County offers great surfing, award-winning beaches, dramatic landscapes and peak-to-beach cycling.

    It's as much a draw for savvy holidaymakers as it is for television and film crews, with shows like Doctor Who and Torchwood scouting out captivating locations.

    The extensive coast and Victorian promenade of Porthcawl are easy to reach, yet Bridgend County still remains a bit of a secret.

    Here are five of the best things to see and do in Bridgend County:

    Surf some of the best breaks in Britain

    It may not be as well known as New Quay or Gower, but Bridgend County has some of the hottest surf breaks in the country, so much so that South African pro surfer Ingemar Cressey recently opened Cressey's Surf Academy here.

    Porthcawl Surf School and Adventures Wales also offer surf lessons throughout the year, while events and festivals extend the surf vibe into the county’s bustling towns.

    We recently sent Jack Palfrey to Porthcawl to find out more.

    Wander along the Wales Coast Path

    The Wales Coast Path is a coastal trail that stretches right around Wales, but Bridgend County provides some of the route’s most unique landscapes. Along the way, try watersports at the award-winning Rest Bay or head to the sands of Ogmore, where you’ll have to navigate stepping stones in a river to reach Ogmore Castle. The Dare to Discover app is the best way to access the coastal and inland walking routes in the area.

    Follow in the footsteps of movie stars

    Visit the mighty Merthyr Mawr sand dunes, which stood in for the Arabian Desert in the Oscar-winning epic Lawrence of Arabia, and have hosted the casts of Doctor Who and Torchwood. Later this year, Bridgend County will star in a BBC adaptation of D.H Lawrence’s classic, Lady Chatterley’s Lover.

    It has been found that the universities in the modern days give the students several types of the research papers on several topics. The reason behind is to test the depth of the students on these topics. The professors also want to see the research skills of the students and how they have understood the topic that they have taken up to write the research paper on. The students need to submit these research papers within a certain time. They can even fail in their assessments if they conduct these research papers poorly. Very often it has been seen that the students do not have any idea how they can format their pages and write on these topics. Their future career may be ruined if they do not conduct these research papers properly.
