I had some really good days and nights in Croyde until the developers got in. It used to be a lovely place to visit but your not welcome now unless you bring your family. A great surfing beach but not for beginners.

Brilliant team of instructors, my 13 year old son had a wonderful week. He learned to surf from being a beginner, he gained in confidence as a young adult. Thank you

I chose Surfing Croyde Bay because of their website, information and their packages (we chose to complete four sessions). During the lessons we watched the various instructors interact with people of all ages with amazing ease and... More

I've wanted to learn to surf for about 15 years, but am not a strong swimmer and don't like being out of my depth. This year I decided to give it a whirl and face some of my fears. The instructors explained that I wouldn't need to get out of my depth during the lesson and would only need to... More
