North Devon Cottages Good for Surfing

North Devon is famous for its beautiful landscapes, long sandy beaches and world class surf-spots! Year after year many flock to the beaches of Woolacombe, Putsbourgh, Croyde and Saunton Sands for the great surf. The beaches are perfect for beginners looking for a few lessons and also experienced riders looking for some clean barreling waves!

Surfing is an activity the whole family can enjoy, so if you’d like to experience the thrill for yourself, North Devon is the perfect location to try!

Where are the best surf spots in North Devon?

The most popular surf spots in North Devon are located at Woolacombe, Putsbourgh, Croyde and Saunton Sands. During the summer months these spots become very popular with tourists looking to catch a few waves. There are also many ‘secret’ spots around the coast of Devon; you’ll have to ask the locals about those ones though shhhhhhhh.

To ensure that everyone is safe during their time at the beach, popular locations are patrolled by RNLI lifeguards or Surf Lifesaving volunteers during the summer months.

What makes North Devon great for Surfing?

The Atlantic sea has a very long fetch, so the waves travelling across the sea have plenty of time to grow in size as the wind blows and enough time to form themselves into sets of waves, ready to break along the beautiful shores of North Devon.

Can I hire out surf equipment?

Yes! Throughout North Devon there are many surf instructors happy to hire out equipment for a day, a week or a month!

Can I surf all year round in Devon?

Yes, many keen surfers choose to surf all year round! The water does get very cold during the winter months, so a winter wetsuit, boots, gloves and a hood is essential.
