vw campervan surf cool bbq beach beers chillout
It isn’t one of our vans but I do occasionally like to share the photo on our calendar every now and again. It’s up behind the door in the kitchen although these days it is almost for decoration. Our household uses google calendar nowadays.
I quite like the ethos of this photo. It tells you what campervans are all about. The cool image down the beach. Surf dudes, barbecue over an open fire in the dunes when the sun goes down. Chilled beers. Yaknow.
Our season is in full swing. We shall have to see if we get a chance to use a van ourselves. One of our fave spots is Rhossili Beach on the Gower peninsula. Hillend Campsite. You can’t book so if you want to go on a Bank Holiday you either need to get there early or the day before to make sure.
Fantastic surf beach with PJ’s Surf Shop in Llangennith if you want to hire a board for the weekend And the Kings Head pub for a burger and a few sherberts late into the evening. There is also the Llangennith Surf School if you want some lessons.
Feel a bit like a walking billboard here. Obviously you can also hire one of our vans if surfing on the Gower takes your fancy. Hire two and go with friends. We love going in convoy with pals. We once took a couple of vans to the Latitude Festival. Met some friends for lunch in a nearby pub and all drove in together. They let us have a corral at the campsite so we set up the bbq/firepit in the middle and cooked breakfast there every day.
Hit the coast in Southwell on the way home. Lovely down there. It’s a bit of a drive back to Lincoln but we weren’t in a rush and the weather was so nice we had a bbq when we got home as well.
