Paddle boarding and windsurfing course dates for 2018 Email Print

Paddle boarding and windsurfing course dates for 2018

Ben will make them look pleasing but here is the rough cut for 2018. Most lessons will be at the "Duck Pond", which is our centre by the Imperial recreation ground. The water is shallow and remains flat unless there is a North Westerly. It is a brilliant place to take the first steps in learning new watersports skills. And the view from the water is amazing.

Our SUP club will meet at the Duck pond either Saturday or Sunday and occasionally pop over to Orcombe for a SUP to Sandy Bay and back - but that is for those with a little bit of paddle boarding experience.

We will post a leaflet soon with the full years programme.

Here are some of the early dates, come and join in - book yourself on a course ready for a good start in the spring or if the weather holds email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., courses are still running at the moment.

The start of Kitesurf Club 2016 Email Print

This year’s season has kicked off in full swing thanks to the mild weather and good winds- the UK is delivering the watersports goods yet again! One of the main watersports that makes good use of the spring winds and isn’t affected by the spring showers is Kitesurfing.

 On the 26th of March we held our first Kitesurf Club experience with Ken, Sarah plus Jules all mastering kite control and Julian greatly improving on riding away into the distance! Our trusty safety boat affectionately named Pluto ferried everyone to one of Exmouth’s greatest kitesurfing assets, the seafront sandbar. The sandbar provides a perfect waist deep water teaching environment with safe onshore winds and wonderful views of the town. As Pluto was anchored up the remnant winds of storm Katy provided everyone with the chance to experience a true strong breeze! As part of mastering kite control, Ken, Sarah and Jules were all given coaching on how to manage the kite during unpredictable conditions- a must in the UK! Whilst they were mastering kite control Julian was shredding on by, utilizing the big winds for effortless board starts and maintaining good board speed.

At Exmouth Watersports we like to be a bit different than a traditional centre- whether it’s running a watersports taster day for school children at the beloved Orcombe point, or running an Archery Tag tournament at our National Trust site.  You can probably guess we instruct kitesurfing a bit differently too, under the name of Kitesurf Club. Instead of the standardized 1/2/3 day format you will see across the country (and the world) the Club provides continual coaching, support and advanced learning to get you on the water- the details of which can be found here http://exmouthwatersports.co.uk/kitesurfing-exmouth-devon-lessons-learn/kitesurf-club-new

Daisy's 18th Birthday SUP party! Email Print

Big shout out to Daisy and her 18th birthday party friends who stayed with us at Exmouth Country Lodge & Campsite last weekend. They put in a massive effort to brave a northerly frigid breeze, getting out on the water with us at our estuary centre for SUP fun and games. Course dates for Stand Up Paddle boarding can be found on our website at http://exmouthwatersports.co.uk/stand-up-…/course-dates-2016

Merry Christmas Email Print

Merry Christmas everyone! We will be having a few drinks in the Grapevine Exmouth from 3:30pm Sun 20th to celebrate the year, come along and join us.


Dawn SUP patrol is back! Email Print

This morning might have been -5degrees C but that will not stop us from getting our dawn SUP on. The air was crisp and the sunrise was beautiful! We even found a nice little lump of a wave to have a slide on. We truly believe that getting out there through the winter is the only way to survive the dark cold months after the christmas and new year joy has subsided.

Once you are up, and managed to slip into your Spartan Wetsuits Reflex, your core body temperature warms all of the extremities. You can then just relax and enjoy the epic scenery as the red, orange and yellow skies mix with the dark blues and silver seas.

We have a huge range of Spartan wetsuits in stock on site, the perfect christmas present for all serious SUPers, Windsurfers and Kiters. Helping them stay out there through the winter months, as we all know some of the best conditions, both windy and calm waves, are found in the mid-winter.

Next time we head down for a dawn patrol we will endeavour to let you all know, so that you can join us, we have boards if you don't. All you need is experience and the drive to get out in the cold at 7am.

20 knot club Email Print

This weekend we are running our windsurfing 20 knot club on Saturday and Sunday at the duck pond in Exmouth.

These sessions are ideal for intermediates looking to improve skills on the water. On Saturday, John will be running the session from 3pm and focusing on using big sails, harnesses, footstraps and making the most of the conditions. He will get you practicing on our windsurf simulator, getting in and out of the footstraps and adjusting trim and balance. 

On Sunday, Steve will be there from 3:30pm with what looks like slightly windier conditions. He will lead on from Saturday's session for further troubleshooting and technique improvement.

Bunkhouse residents take up SUP Email Print

 

 

Over the last weekend we had the pleasure of taking our first residential group out on the water. The Gonzalez who stayed with us at the campsite/bunkhouse came out to learn stand up paddle boarding on a level 1 lesson. It was an epic morning with a slight north-westerly breeze, giving the paddlers a challenge. However, the lesson finished with a race from mare rocks (upwind) back to the beach, not to mention our instructor Jonno ended up buying the beers for coming last (although he might have been told to look after the stragglers, opps!)
