Watersports North Devon

Push your boundaries and discover how wet, exciting and wild North Devon can truly be. Watersports in North Devon are becoming increasingly popular with visitors aiming to get their next water fix! 

North Devon is renowned for being one of the top hot spots in the UK primarily for surfing, but there are a variety of other water sports here for you to explore. Experience the thrill of open water diving, fly along the water in a speedy dinghy, stand up paddle boarding (SUP North Devon). Some of the UK's best all year-round water sports are here and all set in stunning locations along the North Devon coast line.

If competing against family members or a group of friends inspires your competitive side try the adrenalin pumping magical thrill of The total wipeout course is the perfect choice for you, this was inspired by ITV's series "Total Wipeout" where the aim of the game was to complete a grulling and tiresome assult course in the best time.  But if the thought of jumping over "big red balls" is too much excitement for your relaxed holiday then North Devon offers some sedate watersport activities such as boating, canoeing and even cruises to the spectacular Lundy island from Bideford Quay. 

Coasteering in North Devon provides a real adventure that is set within the natural landscape of the coast as you navigate the cliff fronts and jump from rocks right into the sea, what better way to explore the often unseen parts of your favourite area than Coasteering in North Devon. Give it a go, this is definitely an experience not to miss!  

SUP North Devon for short, or otherwise known as stand up paddle boarding has been popular for years - If you think you have great balance and co-ordination then this will be an excellent challenge for you to take on, as an offshoot to surfing SUP North Devon tests your endurance and stamina as you stand on the board and paddle your way to explore the local coastline, sea cliffs and the various coves and beaches. 

Yes, yes we know, Surfing in Croyde is North Devon's biggest attraction, and we know it cannot be left unmentioned, so much so that we felt it was best to dedicate an entire page on our website to offer the best guidance we can to you all. 

In our view the best cottages for those who like to take on water sports are  Mill Farm and  Streamways, both of these well appointed properties have the added benefit of outside showers which are perfect for rinsing off after a sea salty dip, not only that Streamways has the benefit of a hot tub and Mill Farm has a sauna - Both great for warming yourselves back up !

So the question is are you ready to take on Water sports North Devon????

Coasteering - Croyde  - Point breaks

Coasteering in North Devon is a mixture of scrambling and climbing around cliffs, through hidden sea caves, traversing rocky outcrops, swimming through ocean carved channels and jumping off headlands into sea pools and gullies, all the time being toyed with by the ocean swells. Coasteering with Point Breaks is an exhilarating sport that explores the stunning North Devon coast.

Coasteering in North Devon can be as challenging as you want it to be, some of our jumps are only six foot high and others are over 20 feet but none are compulsory therefore you can choose whether you just want to have a scramble around the coastline, or face your fear as you gaze over a vertical drop that will make you think at least twice.

Stand up paddleboarding(SUP) - Croyde  - Point breaks
Stand up paddleboarding (SUP North Devon), is an ancient form of surfing originating in Polynesia. More recently it has been growing in popularity as a fun and accessible way to enjoy both the surf and flat water.

An SUP is like an oversized surfboard that you stand on from the start and hold a single bladed paddle to move yourself forwards. It's easier to learn than surfing because you start by standing up and the boards are big and stable.
