What we're about

Welcome to Bristol & South West Adventure Sports! (previously known as "Bristol & South West Extreme").

Are you looking to meet new people in the area, whilst trying your hand at something totally different and outside of your comfort zone? Then this is the group for you! We're famed for organising lots of fun and adventurous activities - from wakeboarding and surfing, to kayaking trips, climbing and abseiling, clay pigeon shooting, trips to goApe, go-karting, race driving and stunt driving, sky-diving, bungee jumping, regular social nights (down the pub), and even trips abroad. And many, many more. So, throw caution to the wind, and join up today!

We're by far the most active group in the area for this kind of thing, so have always got something coming up. Take a look at our calendar for past and future events, read some reviews, and check out our videos and photos, to get a flavour of what we're all about.

Hope to welcome you to an event soon :-)

Skiing/Snowboarding, Wengen long weekend

Two of us from Bristol & Bath Everything Meetup group have booked a self-catering apartment with allchalets.com at short notice in Wengen for a long weekend skiing/boarding. Flights to Basel with Easyjet are still pretty cheap. If anyone wants to join us there, you would be welcome but you'll need to make all your own arrangements. Total for our accommodation and flights was only £250 so you might get lucky and find a deal. Lift passes aren't cheap but not extortionate. Brexit day escape! The UK has signed a deal with Switzerland so we should be ok to exit and return! ;-)

Battle of Lansdown OCR

BS30 6NQ

This is a local 10k obstacle course race. Lots of lovely mud to crawl through and objects to climb over! Great fun and even a free beer at the end 🍻 Some level of fitness is required but it's more for fun than a "race". I've signed up for the 9:50 wave (wave 2).
