My daughter and I attended a taster session here. The facilities are first class, a real professional set up and the staff were very friendly and helpful to a varied range of pupils. Booking was simple and the customer service is second to none, a great set up close to the beach.

I have just started surfing and we were in Croyde for a week so I signed up and had a really great time. The instructors were amazing and we all caught a few waves. On my second lesson I had one on one for most of the session which was amazing.

We booked a lovely cottage in Braunton and within a 10 minute drive we visited Saunton, Croyde, Putsborough and Baggy Point. Many of these beaches are a haven for surfers and great to watch. Miles of sandy beaches - we loved Saunton as huge and lots of dunes - always somewhere to get away from the crowds. Croyde is a... More

Croyde Bay is huge with a glorious stretch of sand that must be over half a mile long. Good waves that attract loads of surfers and body boarders. There are lifeguards on at weekends during the day as it gets very busy. Plenty of local facilities like restaurants, shops, pubs, B&B's, hotels, campsites and holiday resorts.

I can't praise Surfing Croyde Bay enough. Ally, Kerry, Vicky and the whole crew make you feel like you have known them for ages. Arrive as strangers leave as friends. Two families of 4 adults and 3 children aged 13 - 10 had lessons over the easter weekend and they really really can't do enough to ensure everyone has a... More

Just back from weekend learning to surf with Kerry at Surfing Croyde Bay. Had a fantastic time. Kerry was a brilliant instructor with my son up and at it on the 3rd attempt. I took a little longer but Kerry was really encouraging and helpful all the way. Great instructor/student ratio! Had lots of time for us and it really... More

Our first time in Croyde. We have two daughters aged 15 and 13 who really wanted to enhance their surfing skills. Surfing Croyde Bay were excellent at advising us at what was best for the girls. They went in as beginners and advanced to intermediate. All instructors were friendly and made their experience memorable. Thanks so much. We can't wait... More
