Welsh Adaptive Surf Championship 2022 - Adventure Parc Snowdonia

The Heat is On...

all about the Welsh Adaptive Surf Championship 2022

Here on the parc we’re getting incredibly excited about welcoming back surfers from all over the world for the Welsh Adaptive Surf Championship, taking place in our freshwater Wavegarden surf lagoon over the 1st and 2nd July. 

Marking the second time we’ve hosted the competition, we know that this year is going to be better than ever following two summers of lockdowns and restrictions – in short, the waves are rolling, the surfers are preparing and the stoke levels are at an all-time high. 

Participating in the event as well as being responsible for making much of it happen, our very own Llewelyn Williams of Abersoch weighed in with “without the adaptive surf community, I don’t know where I’d be. I’m very grateful for everyone around the world in Adaptive Surfing, and all the people trying to make it grow. Hopefully it means that more people with disabilities will come along, have a go and be able to go in the ocean.”

When is the Welsh Adaptive Surfing Championship? 

The event will be running from 10am on the 1st-2nd July 2022 at Adventure Parc Snowdonia, Dolgarrog, Conwy LL32 8QE. 

How can I watch the Welsh Adaptive Surfing Championship? 

Spectator admission across both days is free and we would love to see you here on the parc. Alternatively, we will be live streaming the event from our webpage so that those who are unable to attend can watch from home.
