Canoeing, Kayaking & Sea Kayaking

When the right conditions prevail the surf at Lynmouth Bay in Exmoor National Park is a regional classic.
Surfing is ideal for the experienced surfer with a point break together with a west, south west swell and a southerly wind, the pebble and rock bottom ensures perfect breaking waves.
Good surf is to be had at all times of the tide, but as it breaks over boulders it's not for the faint hearted or novices.
Surf's Up!

The East Lyn River from Watersmeet and Rockford or Hillsford Bridge to Lynmouth Harbour provides really excellent and challenging conditions. Whitewater kayakers frequently run this river in the winter when seeking the thrill of a challenging Grade 4 paddle. The two rivers most suited to canoeing are the Barle and Exe, both are classed as Grade 1/2 rivers. With the Bristol Channel having the 2nd highest tidal range in the world sea kayaking is becoming ever more popular along the rugged Exmoor coast.
