Surf Breaks, Croyde

Product Information

Community Quote

... Surfing, if you have the chance to do it is one of the best ways to keep fit and the feeling it gives you is just amazing, that you really need to try it for yourself. I would urge anyone just to give it a go, well worth it! As a really young kid I started surfing the waves on a bogie ... Read review

SURFS UP

AdvantagesGreat fun, great exercise, Croyde is a good break, and a very nice summer resort to visit

DisadvantagesCan be dangerous if you are unfit, or unprepared

"...me having no transport. I surf at two great beaches in North Devon, Croyde Bay and Putsborough, both just outside Barnstaple. Cornwall also has great surf spots, I’m no expert. Parts of Wales, and West coast of Ireland are good UK surf spots. France and Portugal have good European places. All these face the Atlantic Ocean, so the waves travel 2000 miles before hitting land. All this time called the fetch of waves result in big waves hitting ..." Read review

Croyde Bay - surfing and fun

AdvantagesLaid-back, pretty, excellent surfing

DisadvantagesBusy in the summer, rip currents

"Croyde is situated on the North Devon coast and is an ideal holiday location for surfers, families and couples. Croyde is a small village set in the countryside in an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is very pretty with lots of thatched cottages and old houses. The main attraction for many though, is the long sandy beach which is also one of the top surfing destinations in the country. The village itself features a couple of surfing shops, ..." Read review

Surf dudes with attitudes

Advantagesmmm beach

DisadvantagesNot one person overheard saying the word 'gnarly'

"...that uploads quickly. I don't surf and have no intention to start so what could this small tourist town in north Devon possibly have that would interest me? Not only me I might add, in July of this year myself and 23 other males (predominantly of the non-surfing variety) headed for Croyde on a stag weekend, could it cope? Well the short answer is 'no'. The second night of the weekend we all ended up in a tiny nightclub in Woolacombe watching a ..." Read review

Croyde, surf destination for Brummies.

AdvantagesExcellent fast, powerful waves.

DisadvantagesBusy, busy, busy.

"...everytime I have been the surf has been so busy I have had to swerve all over the place to avoid mowing people down. The waves are fantastic despite the crowds, there are three main areas, the main beach which is a sandbar (sand bottom), a shallow reef and a point break. The reef and the point break are for experienced surfers only as the waves are powerful and they only break on a big swell. The sandbar is where you will find most people, ..." Read review

Great all round village

AdvantagesSmall, friendly and fun

DisadvantagesSometimes hard to find somewhere to eat

"...ice cream palour, plus several surf shops. The village it's self is about 10-15 mins walk to the beach if you take the road route, but last year we found a track which runs from the side of the pub, right down to the beach. This is my prefered route as the road route is just that, walking on the road as there are not many footpaths. Down on the beach it sometimes gets really packed as it is a haven for surfers, In June there is the North Devon Festival ..." Read review
