Nip & Rip

SUMMER SESSIONS

what we offer

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 swimmers and sun cream (hopefully!) ready to embrace and enjoy the day!

our summer sessions consist of three thrilling activities

cold water dip

How better to start your day, than by embracing the cold water and joining us for a dip in one of the secluded coves surrounding Woolacombe beach? Nestled deep in North Devon’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, these spots really are breath-taking. The benefits of cold-water dipping are well documented and include the release of endorphins giving the feeling of a natural high, boosting the immune system, reducing stress levels, and increasing circulation. We are keen cold-water dippers and fully qualified beach lifeguards so we will be leading you into the water and reassuring you that it is never too cold!

Yoga

Our yoga sessions will be run by Isabel, our resident instructor who completed her multi style yoga course two years ago in India. Isabel will be joining us after our dip once we have warmed up and had a hot drink. Yoga and surfing complement each other perfectly. Both require strength, flexibility, and balance. We all practice yoga regularly especially prior to a surf to get our muscles warmed and ready for the water.

We have partnered with Porthole Cafe to provide you with Brunch following our yoga session and prior to surfing so you feel energised and ready to take on the waves!

surf lesson

Our surf lessons will be run through Woolacombe Surf Centre; a Surfing England accredited centre of excellence, who are based in the heart of Woolacombe. Lani and Amelia will be coaching the sessions, with ISA level 1 and 2 qualifications we can cater for both beginner and advanced surfers. Woolacombe offers high quality waves, perfect for complete beginners right through to intermediate and advanced surfers. With Woolacombe being one of the largest beaches in North Devon there is plenty of room for everyone to surf even in the height of summer. In-water photography will be provided throughout the session so you can get some shots of you surfing and analyse areas for future progression.
