Post Surfing Weekend 25-27 May Reply with quote
This is a camping weekend next to the sea at Appledore, with three 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. I am happy to give tips and guidance but if you want proper surf coaching it should be possible to book a Skern Lodge surf coach for a half or full day if required or book access to their heated pool for rolling practice. Skern Lodge also have a number of Mega surf kayaks demonstrators available. If they are not required for a course or a competition, you may be able to try one of those not in use. This is a really excellent opportunity to have a play in a pukka surf boat - you won’t believe the difference. Go on, take the opportuinity.

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.

Thanks

John

Is anybody else interested in this weekend? A couple of people have mentioned it outside the forum but I'll need to have an indication of numbers by Thursday morning at least.

Obviously still a long way off forecastwise but it's not looking too bad either for weather or surf at the moment. Add your name if tempted.

Thanks

John

That's great Micheal, at least 4 of us down on the Friday night now !

I want to surf Friday, which should be the biggest day of the weekend but high tide is 6.15 and I think it will be on the ridge which will prevent me launching my boat (fins don't like boulders) so I may go to Saunton for about 5.30 and turn up late.

If I can get out early enough, I might see you at Saunton between 5:30 and 6pm for a quick session. Do you park at the North end of the beach?

Good weekend! Looking forward to the next one in July. And perhaps sooner if I acquire something green and fast!
