Nick Thorn Surf Coaching is a company founded by prestigious surfing expert Nich Thorn. His 20 years of experience teaching people and getting trained in the best schools in the country and around the world has turned us into the reference center of water sports in Devon. In concrete, we're located in Woolacombe Beach, considered one of the greatest coastline areas in the United Kindom.
To get here, you must take the Challacombe Hill Road and Marine Drive if you take off from Woolacombe city center and, in just a 4-minute drive, you'll be arriving. If you're coming from Putsborough, your drive will take 13 minutes and you must drive the Putsborough Road.
We provide a great range of coasteering, paddleboarding and surfing activities and, as we believe that sport must be supported by excellence and hard work, we are an Adventure Activities Licensing Authority's company, because safety is one of our key values; and we also work with important associations related to our fields, like the Paddleboarding Southwest or the Surfers World organisations. With them, we try to upgrade our rules, the equipment and everything that we need to provide the best experiences.
At the same time, we allow people to hire our equipment in case they want to enjoy the sessions on their own, so everyone can find what they need and want at Nick Thron Surf Coaching!
Nick Thorn Surf Coaching is all about the sea and the sea provides the greatest paddleboarding sessions at Woolacombe Beach, the venue where we work.
Our company is among the best-considered ones in Devon and that's only because of the hard work that Nick Thron, our founder, has put to provide the most fantastic paddleboarding experiences in the area. In fact, his 20 years of expertise has led us to where we are now and has allowed us to be related with the most prestigious associations, like the SUP Southwest, that works for offering the best training to coaches and that pay attention to issues like safety.
In addition, our location is so well-connected from two of the main towns of the region. Thus, you can take Putsborough Road from the village of the same name and you'll be getting here in less than 15 minutes. If you come from Woolacombe, it will take you 4 minutes! Yes, you have read correctly!
Paddleboarding is a great adventure to enjoy in private or group lessons and those you will find with us. It's also a fantastic activity to do a tour around breathtaking places, like Lundy Island, which is at the Bristol Channel and it's part of the Landmark Trust since 2022.
Welcome to Nick Thorn Surf Coaching, where paddleboarding is the excuse to visit a wonderful place like ours!
At Nick Thorn Surf Coaching, we have the best ingredients to offer fantastic water sports activities. As we have one of the best beaches in the UK, Woolacombe Beach, we have to provide coasteering. Why? Because this coastline between Putsborough and Woolacombe has the best features to climb, jump and swim.
Apart from the venue, we have become a reference in the field due to Nich Thorn's experience. He has been working for over two decades training and coaching people from different levels and providing stunning adventures that you cannot forget. Because of that, we founded our school and, since then, we have become members of important associations like the Coasteering South West, which boasts this sport in this part of the country. Moreover, we hold important certificates like the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority (AALA), which highlights our compromise with safety and adventurers' well-being while they are doing a coasteering session with us. We're also a Disclosure and Barring Service checked company because we provide sessions to all the family members and kids are more than welcome here!
To get to our meeting point, you can choose between coming from Woolacombe (drive along the Challacombe Hill Road and Marine Drive) or from Putsborough, which the main road will take you here in less than 15 minutes.
Welcome to Nick Thorn Surf Coaching! Are you ready to have fun coasteering?
At Nick Thorn, surfing is our specialty. With 20 years working in the field, providing lessons to adventurers and competing, our founder Nick Thorn founded the school to share the exciting moment that this sport can provide.
We work at Putsborough Beach, which has been considered for years as the greatest venue to practice surfing in the United Kindom. It's also a place with fantastic road connections, as you can arrive at our headquarters driving Putsborough Road, from Putsborough; or Challacombe Hill Road and Marine Drive, from Woolacombe city center.
Why is our company a reference in surfing? First of all, because we offer high-quality sessions among which you can find the popular Level 4 Master sessions, those that are thought for becoming a true professional of the activity. Second of all, because we are members of Surfing England, an association that works to boost the sport around the country. Finally, because our offer can suit your needs as we provide private to groups lessons.
This is Nick Thorn Surfing, a company to trust and a company to come and enjoy your free time!
