Post July 5th - 6th Surfing Weekend Reply with quote
This is a camping weekend next to the sea at Appledore, with two days surfing on the beach at Westward Ho! The camping will be a field just outside the entrance to Skern Lodge Activity Centre which has plenty of space and a great view.

We have access to the Lodge facilities including showers and toilets plus an outside cold water sink for tidying up. They also have a small bar we can use. In the camping field there is just a drinking water tap - it is not a full campsite so facilities such as electric hookup are missing. If you don’t fancy camping they may have some residential accommodation available at about £36 pppn (last years price) including breakfast & dinner. Breakfast and dinner are available in the lodge for campers if booked. Accommodation and meals need to be booked in advance please. Camping will be £5pppn (last years price, I'll confirm).

This is not a club event with coaches or leaders just a gathering of club members for a fun weekend by the sea. We can help out and give some guidance to get you going. There is also the chance to try out proper surf boats if they are available - just be warned, you may like them!

If you don't fancy the water, there is plenty of opportunity to walk the coast paths and relax in Appledore and just generally enjoy the area.

I plan to arrive Friday evening and camp Friday and Saturday nights.

We need to let Skern Lodge know the numbers in advance so if you would like to go please post here with which nights you will be staying.

I've asked about the dogs.

We've currently got 9 confirmed at the moment. If anyone else is interested, can you let me know. Skern like to know approximate numbers a week in advance.


Anyone who hasn't been before - or has and needs a refresh (me!), Roger has put together a guide. Worthwhile to read

Can't make it now, sorry. Sad

This is the only weekend we can move Ben out of Newcastle and in to London. Van with two drivers required, so no surfing this time. May be able to make one in August, if anything should turn up....

Have fun, y'all!

Aww, Leonie! Not seen you in ages.

So turnout is looking pretty good, we may have as many as 17 people turning up at the moment. Let's hope for some Surf!

No problem guys, see you there.

Extra people:

Sue
Sarah
Nick
Steve
Yogi
Martyn (day only)
Simon (day only)
Chloe (day only)

Everyone happy with where to go etc?

Important info:

Tesco's at Bideford closes at 2200.
Chip shop in Appledore closes at 2100
Pubs, there are a few in Appledore.

There will almost certainly be someone about when you arrive - if not, walk towards Appledore and look in the pubs!

No problem Tina.

http://www.sacc.co.uk/html/EventDetails.html and click on Westward Ho!

Essentially go here:

Skern Lodge, Appledore, Devon EX39 1NG. And before you drive through the entrance to Skern Lodge, you should see a field full of tents on the left. That's where we will be.

If anyone is going down early enough today and fancies surfing I will probably be doing so at Sandymere (the centre of the beach) from about 5pm.

However, if there's no-one about there (unlikely) or the wind is making it too messy, I'll be at the town end where there should be more people and also a little shelter from the wind.

John

Superb weekend! Thanks for the 27 happy campers we had and of course the day trippers. Probably one of the most attended surf weekends we've ever had. Good surf too! Hope to see a lot of you again on future surf weekends!
