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.

Had a great morning with the kids surfing. Took the taster session with Vicki who made us feel safe and helped us get the most from the waves. Many thanks Vicki .

During the lessons we watched the various instructors interact with people of all ages with amazing ease and... More

The instructors explained that I wouldn't need to get out of my depth during the lesson and would only need to... More
