Walking On Waves, Saunton, Devon
Walking on Waves is a surf school whose HQ is at Saunton on the North Devon coast, though they also offer lessons from Croyde. Both beaches have superb surf conditions – vast stretches of golden sands and long slow waves, with a high tidal range adding to the excitement. Factor in the fantastic scenery and we’d say that’s a pretty good way to spend at least part of your day.
They coach all abilities and all ages at Walking on Waves, so wherever you are with it you’re in good hands because they can give you a good introduction to surfing or, if you’re already quite well seasoned, they can show you the best ways to improve your techniques. Lessons can be booked for 1 hour or you can book a block of three days, and something else they can do is small group coaching for up to 6 people – those sessions are either an hour and a half or two hours long.
And there’s more. You can try stand-up paddle boarding and because they have special permission to drive right down onto the beach, they can take you out on a surfing safari, which sounds like fun. Surf hire and supplies are available from their sister shop at Croyde. Cue the Beach Boys…
