Croyde beach is a renowned surfing bay in a spectacular location and has been the location of the British Surfing Championships on three occasions. The bay offers a wide expanse of golden sand backed by sand dunes and green fields. The surf in Croyde is famed for the consistency of the waves that break virtually every day. This is partly due to the favourable direction Croyde faces into the ocean ensuring swell from anywhere in the North Atlantic reaches our shores. We have helped beginners learn to surf at Croyde since 1996 and find that most days provide an excellent wave to learn.
Our Croyde surf school is located just steps from Croyde beach and is conveniently situated in the beach car park off Moor Lane in Croyde. The surf school has a reception area, male and female changing rooms, indoor and outdoor seating areas and a toilet facility. The surf school is where your lesson begins and where you will meet our instructors, get kitted out with wetsuits and surfboards and then head to the beach for your surfing experience. Your surf lesson begins with 15 to 20 minutes of on land coaching and this usually takes place on Croyde Beach. However if the weather is not ideal we can begin your surf lesson in the dry and warmth of the surf school.
I've just spent a week with you in Croyde and it's been one of the best weeks I've ever had! The staff couldn't have done any more to help me feel welcome and they were all brilliant teachers. At the beginning of the week I couldn't have imagined how much they would improve my surfing from only just standing up every 10th wave to standing up almost every time and getting out the back onto some proper green waves, as well as explaining tides ,currents and where the best places to look for equipment and where to avoid!! I look forward to seeing you all again in a few months and hopefully improving my new found passion for surfing further. Thankyou all.
