Discovery September news

As Autumn approaches and the busy Summer season slowly starts to wind down, we have time to reflect on what have been a truly brilliant few months. August presented us with a true variety of weather and surf conditions, from eight foot swells and gale force winds, to glorious sunshine with perfectly still water. For now, we are enjoying the precious few weeks of warmth that are left before Winter properly sets in! 

Our shop base in Bigbury-on-Sea will still be open every day for hire, lessons and enquiries. The beach is a lot quieter now than it has been over the last few weeks, so make the most of the warmer weather. There will still be availability for surf and SUP lessons during weekdays and weekends, so get in touch if you’re keen to book. 

Our yoga/SUP sessions this year have been SO popular that we’ve decided to squeeze one last one in before it gets too cold. Local yoga teacher Becky Hickman will be running a yoga session on the beach from 09:30 until 10:30 onSunday the 8th of September, and then we will be running a SUP session straight afterwards, until 12. You also have the option to attend each part separately if you prefer. This will be based in Bigbury-on-Sea, and the cost will be £35 in total (£10 cash to be paid to Becky, and £25 cash or card for us). The forecast currently looks great, it should be nice and sunny and the sea calm! 

Opportunities to join in with our ever-popular AONB sessions are running out this season. We have two dates left for this year, both of which still have some spaces. We will be running discounted sessions for those with EX, PL, or TQ postcodes on Saturday 7th September at 15:00, and Saturday 5th October at 14:00. These sessions cost £19pp, and last an hour and a half. All equipment is provided by us. Drop us an email, or call to book. 

Finally, the time for our annual Discovery Surf Contest is fast approaching. This day is always a great hit with everyone and fun for ALL of the family. We are planning for the individual categories, and foamie fest to go ahead on Saturday 21st September. This competition will give you the chance to show off some skills you’ve been working on in the water, as well as spending a fun day with all of your surf buddies. Our foamie fest is always a massive hit with mums and dads too, so start planning the fancy dress! More information on the contest to follow.

That's all from us here at the moment. Thank you all for such a great season, it's been lovely seeing so many familiar faces coming back time and time again. We will hope to see you all again soon.
