Croyde Bay Camping, North Devon



We may be closed for camping but you can still hire surf boards from us throughout Autumn, Winter and Spring. So if you’re popping down to Croyde for the day or weekend and need a board to hire, get in touch. We use equipment supplied by Tiki, a local surf shop in Braunton. Established since 1963, Tiki has been at the forefront of UK surfing with a huge selection of boards, wetsuits and accessories, it is run by surfers for surfers.

The boards we have selected for hire below are the Grizzly’s, perfect for beginners and Tiki’s most durable board. Available in 7″ or 8″ size.



The Grizzly is Tiki’s toughest and most high volume softboard. A high density EPS core is wrapped in 6oz fibreglass and epoxy for stiffness and durability before being wrapped in 4mm PE deck skin and slick base. Plus 4mm PE rail bumpers and a handle underneath. Supplied with fins.
