Anyone thinking about it - JUST DO IT - DO IT!!!!! Josh is a great Coasteering Guide. Good fun and knowledgeable. My kids and I loved the experience - even my youngest that had to be "manually assisted" by me off one of the jumps - but he climbed up after and did it again!! Most excellently awesome time. Thanks.

Top venue for surfing, a little off the bitten track but well worth it, had a couple of days and lucky to have some big waves, just started out surfing and was very impressed.

Great introduction to coasteering - for all ages! All equipment provided - and even catered for 6ft 7 husband. Sensitive to weather conditions, and confident leaders.

Tried bodyboarding here and loved it. Been a couple of times now and still loving it. We'll be back next year! Beach is sand and nice and clean. Plenty of room on both our visits to setup camp.

I took two sessions with Surfing Croyde Bay during weekend and it was great. Guys are lovely and they are very good instructors. Even though weather wasn't the best and we had very little waves on the second day they they did their best to speed us' so we can still enjoy it. I would most definitely recommend this school.
