There isn’t a corner of Gower that we don’t know, its our home, office and our playground and have a passion for sharing it with all of our visitors in a sensitive and sustainable way.
We’re a small family business who’s focus is on quality of experience and not quantity of people through the door. For this reason it’s wise to book early to avoid disappointment especially in peak season.
At Rip n Rock we cater for all levels of abilities, all year round. We will not mix our family groups with our stag and hen groups and will make your booking personal to you, drop us a line and let us know exactly what you want to get out of your trip and we’ll make it happen.

Dave – Instructor
Families, schools, stags, pensioners, youth offenders, groups with disabilities……. you name it, he’s taken them on adventures and always seems to be having the time of HIS life! Originally from London(ish) and a former Swansea Uni student, Dave fell in love with the South Wales vibe, the scenery and its hidden gems. He’s since fallen in love with being able to share all its wonders with you. Having surfed on 5 continents, scaled 5000+m peaks and trekked through jungles, he swears that there’s no place like home. Married to Sally, father to Tirion, Mabli and dog Finn he’s one contented dude!
An impressive rock climber and keen surfer, Finn has been know to solo up some very difficult routes and cruise along on a surf board. Sal and Dave’s floppy eared Cocker Spaniel pup tags along on most activities and loves to play with kids, but there is one thing that over-rides all of the above…..a ball!
