Surf and S.U.P
We operate our surf lessons from Croyde Bay and Putsborough Beach. The locations are dictated by the prevailing wind, swell and tide conditions:
Croyde is a fantastic beach break which can be very fast and tubing at low tide, but more forgiving at fuller tides. It also has a high tide reef break when the swell is a reasonable size and also a classic point break.
Putsborough is protected by the headland on South Westerly winds, and is a good sheltered spot when everywhere else is blown out by the wind. It's also a smaller wave then Croyde, so it's great for beginners when Croyde is too big or too busy.
There are lifeguards patrolling the beaches at Croyde in the summer months, plus the RAF rescue helicopter making regular patrols around the coastal area from the marine's base at Chivenor. The coast guard is often seen at the beach, keeping an eye out for trouble.
Come and enjoy the scenery and sandy beaches and see the beautiful sunsets over the sea. Summertime is great for a late 'sunset surf'; just make sure you come back in before its dark.
Coasteering and Kayaking
We operate a few of our coasteering sessions at Baggy Point which is on Croyde bay, you can reach Croyde beach from this area and there are often a lot of walkers as it's a very beautiful spot. Because it's often busy we prefer to take sessions at our 'Secret Spot', near Illfracombe, it's an area of outstanding natural beauty and offers some fantastic jumps!
We operate most of our kayak tours in Watermouth Cove, this is a beautiful sheltered spot that is perfect for those kayaking for the first time or looking for something a bit calmer. But, if you're looking for something a little more adventurous, paddle out the cove and it leads directly out into the open sea where you can try to catch some waves.
We operate our speedboat activities on the Taw and Torridge Estuary. The River Taw really does have it all when it comes to scenery. The trail begins at the Taw Head in the Dartmoor National Park, and then flows through Tarka country before reaching the sea at Barnstaple.
Its long estuary is one of the most important nature reserves in England. Braunton Burrows is a Unesco Biosphere Reserve, and a Special Area of conservation. The amazing sand dunes, matched with the Taw and Torridge reaching the sea almost side by side are a breathtaking back drop for an unforgettable day of wakeboarding, waterskiing, or thrills on our inflatable rides.
Our speedboat activities can only run on high tide, the changing tides of the estuary mean that at low tide it can be almost empty of water. Because of this, we only run one session a day at varying times throughout the year.
