Thank you for your kind words. It is always nice to see people embrace the English weather and realise it can still be great fun. I hope next time the sun is shining for you so you can see the estuary in its best form.

Birthday pressie having just moved to South Hams, loved the hour on the beautiful estuary at Kingsbridge. Great advice from Crispin and Tom throughout, despite bambi legs to start with, didn't fall off and made it back to the pontoon - dry!!!

What a great place to learn to paddleboard - sheltered, quiet and calm. After a couple of hours (and a few splashes) with our fab instructor Tom we had got the basics and are now the proud possessors of our Ready2Ride. Highly recommended!

The Paddle Out Loud event for the wave project was supported (kit and safety) by Waterborn. Great spirit, friendly staff and knowledgeable too.
