Surfing in Croyde

Surfing in CroydeYou don’t have to be a surfer to experience the excitement of Croyde’s famous surf break – Many visitors completely new to the sport have booked lessons with a local surf school and been amazed at how much fun they can have.  Others enjoy bodyboarding, skim-boarding or just pure body-surfing, all of which are possible at Croyde beach. During the season the beach is patrolled by professional RNLI lifeguards who aim to keep all beach-users safe.  Some days you may prefer to ride waves at other local beaches: we are lucky here to have the pick of some real beauties such as Putsborough, Saunton and Woolacombe. All are just a few minutes’ drive away.  Jenny and Richard, and son Joe, have all surfed for many years and can give you advice on where to go, weather conditions and surf hire.

You can hire surf equipment at all the beaches, and in Croyde and Braunton villages.

At Croyde Breakers guesthouse we have washing and drying facilities for your wetsuits and towels and a safe storage area for your boards.

For the more experienced surfers, the Atlantic swells which bring superb waves to North Devon’s coast, can often generate excellent conditions at many times of the year.

Although the summer brings warmer water, many surfers enjoy the crisp, clean lines of an autumn or winter session, and our self-catering Beach Cottages are available all year round. All our properties have heating, double-glazing and hot showers and baths, so they are suitable for off-season stays anytime. At CroydeBreakers B&B we are open from Easter until late October.
