Adventure Kit Hire

It feels great to be hiring kit again.

And even better to be back at Whitesands beach, picking up the hire services started by TYF founder Andy Middleton’s first business, Union Sundown Surf School, way back in 1984.

Visitors to Pembrokeshire can hire a wide range of adventure kit directly from our headquarters in St Davids, and from our Adventure Surf Hire point at Whitesands Beach. To make hiring kayaks and boards easy and practical, customers without roof bars can rent adjustable racks to fit most cars, putting much of Pembrokeshire’s magnificent coastline in range for exploration and play.

Sit-on-top kayaks, sea kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, surfboards, wetsuits and bicycles are all available on a daily or weekly basis.

Outfitting options also include, snorkels and masks, body boards, Kelly Kettles and accessories and a range of tents, with superb 4m white canvas Bell Tents, and Vango Greenwing tunnel tents for hire by the weekend, week or longer.

TYF’s Adventure Hire means that you can bring less kit, cycle to beach to beat the car park queues (and charges!) and have more flexibility about what to do and when, with less wear and tear on you, your family, your car. The world smiles too, as less kit usually means more nature.

FAQ

Previous experience

Sit-on-top Kayaking

The beauty of sit-on-top kayaks is that they encourage exploration of the coast in relative safety. If you have taken part in one of our ½ day kayak adventures you will have the required knowledge to head out and explore sheltered waters. Otherwise, we require you to have at least 3 days of previous paddling experience.

Sea Kayaking

Due to the advanced and sometimes committing nature of the Pembrokeshire coastline, we require a minimum of a BCU/UKCC 3 star certificate/experience for sheltered coastal paddling. For open water and Island exploration we require you to be BCU/UKCC 4 star standard paddlers or accompanied by a 5 star leader.

We will happily rent kayaks to suitably qualified Canoe Wales/BCU coaches; all we require is to see your membership card.

Surfing

The beauty of surfing is that with little experience you can hit the beach and have a fantastic time learning to surf in relative safety. If you have taken part in one of our ½ day surf lessons you will have the required knowledge to hit the surf and continue to improve. A little water confidence and swimming ability is all you need to discover this amazing sport.

If you are unsure if you’re suitably experienced to hire a Surfboard, Sit-on-top Kayak or Sea Kayak please give us a call on 01437 721611 to discuss your previous experience and what you intend to do. We will also need to show you a brief safety video before heading out.

Our advice

Sit-on-top Kayaks

Sit-on-top kayaks are ideal for sheltered water exploration; we strongly recommend launching from a sheltered harbour or beach depending on the days weather conditions. We can supply you with an inflatable roof rack at small extra charge.

We have an extensive knowledge of the surrounding area and will happily advise you where to head to and the areas of the coast suitable for the days forecast. However, this is not a replacement for your own assessment of your own ability and experience.

You are free to head to any beach, we are on hand to recommend the perfect beach break whilst taking in to account your ability and the days conditions. If you don’t have a roof rack we can supply you with an inflatable roof rack at small extra charge.
