Nip & Rip

About us

Our Story

Our Nip&Rip sessions consist of a trio of our favourite activities. We start the day with a cold-water dip to get everyone refreshed and ready for the rest of the day! Next we dry off and warm up with a Yoga flow to get our bodies primed and ready for the final part of the day- the surf lesson. Here you will get to test your skills amongst the waves with all equipment and tuition provided. The three activities take place in and around Woolacombe, North Devon- an area of outstanding natural beauty. Woolacombe bay is the perfect place for our Nip&Rip sessions, with consistent high-quality waves for surfing, as well as secluded and sheltered coves for wild swimming, and all within easy walking distance of each other. As well as the activities, we will also provide a delicious and nutritious brunch courtesy of the Porthole Café, along with hot and cold drinks to keep you warmed and refreshed throughout the day. With everything provided for you, all you need to do is turn up with your swimwear and sun cream (hopefully) ready to embrace and enjoy the day!

Where we are

We are based in Woolacombe North Devon. However, a limited amount of our sessions will be running out of Mortehoe- a small quaint village just around the corner from Woolacombe. Currently we do not have our own premises so will be moving around throughout the day for our trio of activities. Our cold-water dip will be based at either Barricane beach or Grunta beach depending on which session you have chosen. Our yoga class will take place at the Woolacombe Meadow Pavilion which is a 10 minute walk from our dipping location. Finally our surf lesson will be run through Woolacombe Surf Centre which is based at the heart of the Woolacombe village only two minutes from our yoga location and less than 5 minutes from the beach!

We our lucky enough to partner with some amazing local businesses to bring our sessions to life!

Woolacombe Surf Centre

Although our sessions will be coached by Lani and Amelia from Nip&Rip, the surf centre are providing all of the equipment and a friendly welcome on arrival. Lani has been coaching for WSC for five years so we know from experience you will be getting the highest possible quality of surfing tuition by an accredited centre of excellence.

Isabel Cairns

In January 2019 I gained my Multi-style Yoga Teacher Training qualification from Drishti Yoga International based in Goa, South India. Yoga has been at the foundations of my everyday life. I love the versatility of yoga; providing grounding breathing techniques to help with cold water dipping, as well and mobility and strengthening flows that will enhance surfing performance!

The Porthole cafe

The Porthole Café is based on the spectacular Marine Drive in Woolacombe and provides the best local sandwiches and salads using fresh, local ingredients! We have partnered with them to provide you with Brunch following our yoga session and prior to surfing so you feel energised and ready to take on the waves!
