North Devon, the home of Surfing
Always fancied learning to surf but live nowhere near the coast? Well then here’s an opportunity you cannot afford to miss. In North Devon we are incredibly lucky to be surrounded by such beautiful beaches, so we insist you come check it out for yourself. 🏖
Take in the sea breeze and enjoy the sand between your toes. What’s not to love right? And of course, you couldn’t possibly visit these stunning shorelines without having a go at surfing, the greatest water sport in the world. So great that it has now been added to the Olympics for 2020. Get started with a lesson through the Ultimate Adventure Centre and you never know you might see you in Tokyo.
What about beginners?
Never tried surfing before? Never fear, we are a proud partner of the North Devon Surf School. These expert, local surf coaches will guide and support you all the way. They have a purpose-built Surf School with male and female heated changing rooms in a great location, just 50m from the beach. As one of the longest established surf schools in the U.K. they have taught thousands of people the ways of the board and will have you tackling those “gnarly waves dude” in no time. They have also been awarded the ‘Centre of Excellence’ award from both the ISA and Surfing England.
The group lesson lasts approximately 2 hours and is suitable for complete beginners. It is a requirement that you have a good swimming ability in order to take part. The first 25-30 minutes is kitting up and training, followed by approximately 90 minutes of direct coaching on the sand. Then its straight into the water ant time to ride those waves. The School provides all the equipment which includes wet suit and surf board hire, with the equipment being replaced each season. There will be an Instructor with your group throughout the session so no need to panic.
What happens after?
Not only great for surfing but for its surroundings too. Once your surf is over you can head over to the Surf School Café where you can grab that much needed coffee. There is also the on-site shop too where you can grab all your surfing gear for next time you hit the beach. 🌊
Sounds awesome right? Why not add surfing as one of your ultimate activities and go from a Kook to a dude. 🤙
