Devon Surfing Experiences with H2Outdoor

Surfing has come a long way since it first reached these shores in the early 1900s and North Devon has played a key part in what has made this activity so popular. The west facing beaches of Woolacombe, Croyde, Putsborough and Saunton pick up those all important Atlantic swells and their gentle sloping shorelines create waves perfect for surfers. These perfect waves combined with its clean, clear waters, long sandy beaches and the relaxed surf vibe has helped make the area a top surfing location and one that is ideal for both the novice and the advanced surfer.

Woolacombe has recently been given the Trip Advisor Best Beach in the UK award and we can all see why with its clean safe waters and spectacular scenery. Woolacombe is also a fantastic beach to learn to surf and our team of instructors love to teach here due to its mellow, friendly atmosphere and range of conditions.

H2Outdoor offers you the chance to learn to surf at one of the UK's top surf schools where the highly qualified instructors place the emphasis on quality, safety and fun!

There can't be a better, safer introduction to this water sport than with our surf school at Woolacombe and we have a range of options perfect for groups, individuals, families, schools, youth organisations and corporate events.

We have a selection of surf lesson packages for you to choose from whether it’s your first time surfing, or you just want a little extra help to improve. If you are new to the sport, we will teach you the basics before entering the water to practise catching the waves and seeing if you can get to your feet. Your instructor will be watching you and giving guidance where needed and maybe even catch a photo of you as you ride the wave towards the shore.

For those that are looking to improve their skills, come and join one of our improver sessions where our instructors will be out with you and offering personalised guidance to get your skills up in the areas needed.

Woolacombe Surf School is a British and International Surfing Great Britain Accredited Surf School and a Centre of Excellence.
