Surf Lessons, Surf Shop and Luxury Camping in North Devon with Walking on Waves


Private and Group Surf Lessons

First Wave sessions are designed to get you off the beach, in the water, and having fun as quickly as possible. We meet up at our Walking on Waves HQ. Get to know each other and jump into our warm winter wetsuits. It’s only 10m to the beach (although a bit further if the tide is out). We’ll then go through the safety drill and give you a chance to practice before we get wet. With the help of our expert instructors on-the-water coaching techniques, we’ll have you up and riding in no time.


Surfboard Storage

Tired of carting your board up and down the M5? We’ll store your surfboards and deliver them to Saunton beach, or our shop in Croyde for you to take charge of for the duration of your stay. When you leave, drop the surfboards at Saunton or Croyde and we’ll take them back to storage. It couldn’t be simpler. No need to worry about loading your boards at your house and unloading your boards at the beach, why not let us take care of that for you?


Luxury Camping and Trips Abroad

WOWcams Family Surf Camp is closer to the beach than any other site in Croyde. As a gift from us, six hours of surf tuition is thrown into the price of your bell tent pitch.
Boarding in the bell tents will have surfers a pebble throw from Croyde Beach. Less than a five minutes walk from Croyde village, and a 25-minute stroll to more breaking waves at Saunton Sands where our Saunton Webcam is based as well as our HQ for our surf school.


Surf Hire and Shopping

WOWcams surf shop is now open all year round for surf lessons, hires and sales with free parking and easy access to the beach for those of you hiring or taking lessons. We have stock of everything that you could possibly need for your surf trip to the beach. We also have an online store coming very soon! Call Jack or Mike on 07772 240894 or visit UNISON Croyde Bay Holiday Resort.

Be coached, not watched

Sarah Whiteley grew up looking over Saunton Sands, right between Croyde and Braunton. After years at the top of the competitive surfing game (British and European Champion) she decided to return to her roots and give something back to the sport by setting up Walking on Waves Surf School. Chances are you could get lessons from one of Britain’s most successful female surfers.

“I believe in, and take pride in, working with surfers at all levels – from first attempt to competition coaching. There’s a joy that comes from seeing someone stand up for the first time that invigorates me every time. Equally, there’s a sense of fulfilment at helping someone nail a manoeuvre that they’ve been working on for 3 months.”
