Surfers love nature and the locations they play in so it goes without saying that we should leave these special places as good or better than we find them. In practice it is very simple to help keep the wild places beautiful, whatever you take to them – take home afterwards. Even better join a beach clean group or ocean conservation group that proactively makes our oceans healthier. If you have a sunset BBQ ensure all hot embers are extinguished fully and then leave no trace that you were there.
Pembrokeshire has some very special wildlife well worth protecting. In the ocean it is quite common for curious Atlantic grey seals to pop up next to you while surfing and if you head to the more remote spots for an explore after your surf it is easy to spot porpoise and occasionally dolphins and whales.
On land there are some great bird watching spectacles easy to view around nesting season in spring trips to Skomer, Skokholm, Caldey and Ramsey islands are a must for any local or visitor.
Spring flowers on the coast path and beach areas add beautiful colour to the coastline and make a walk pretty spectacular between March and June.
