Wales is home to some of the best surf breaks in the UK. Go on a surfing stag weekend in Cardiff and get bitten by the bug. Nothing matches the intense adrenaline rush of catching your first wave and riding it in.
No experience necessary, just bring swimwear, a towel and a sense of adventure.
Your stag party will master the basics of surfing at Porthcawl, a beginner-friendly Blue Flag beach 25 miles from Cardiff city centre. A BSA qualified surf instructor will show you how to paddle for a wave, catch it, kneel on the board and pop up to your feet. The trick is standing up and staying there!
If the groom's an adrenaline junkie and wants a Cardiff stag weekend to match, surfing is a no-brainer. Hit the water, master the basics and impress the local surfer girls with your newfound skills. If you're lucky, you'll see them all out partying after you've had your fill of the breaks.
Get in the curl, fire it down the line and pull a hard one off the top. And that's just while you're in the water. What happens in the surfer bars afterwards is another matter entirely. Get on it, dudes.

Voted in by ballot as the capital of Wales, Cardiff's original reputation as a dour iron and coal town has long since been smashed, thanks to the colourful nightlife that's grown up around the thriving drinking areas of St Mary Street, Greyfriars Road and the Mermaid Quay. Now blessed with more boozing establishments for its size than anywhere else in the country, Cardiff is a serious contender for surprise stag party hit of the year. And that means it's vital you get a proper meal inside you before you get out and about!
The Saturday night feed is a stag party staple, mainly because it's the only chance every man jack of you will have to put some proper sustenance in his belly. There are always good intentions for eating well on the Saturday night, but let's face it - after one evening of madness on the Cardiff tiles, the best laid plans of stags and men can go seriously sideways. Start well, and you'll be much less likely to write off the weekend.
We've found a great restaurant in central Cardiff, which serves up man sized treats for stag parties. Get your laughing gear into pizza, pasta and classic burgers before you head out to show the city what you're made of!
Cardiff has a solid reputation as one of the UK's best clubbing cities. With that in mind, it's a wise idea to add VIP nightclub entry to your stag party plans. Avoid queuing for ages and splitting the group up to get in. With pre-arranged queue jump group entry to the city's premier club, you can stroll past the long lines and enter without the usual ball ache.
Once in, hit the different bars, chillout rooms and dancefloors. Instead of one cavernous room, this Cardiff club is a labyrinth of swanky themed areas. Roller girls in tiny shorts serve shots in the retro room, whilst gorgeous hula dancers bring the cocktails in the tiki bar. The main room spans the entire top floor and boasts a state-of-the-art soundsystem. Expect to hear classic dance, old skool tunes, hip hop and commercial. Whatever floats your dancing boat, there'll be something dropped that has you waving your hand in the air like you just don't care, and hollering like it's back in the day!
VIP nightclub entry makes life easy for the best man, gives the groom a memorable sendoff and ensures the whole group stays together until the end of the stag night. And frankly, there isn't a venue in the whole of Cardiff that can hold a candle to this one for fun and variety. We know, cos we checked it out personally. Hard life, but someone's got to do it.
