It’s going to be Biblical.

That’s right, it’s time for a Boardriders Cresta Run! The theme this weekend is ‘Bible’ (beards & donkeys), so come and check ’em out as they leave the Barn at about 6 pm Saturday and return through an hour or two later. In inimitable WBSC style they’ve also scheduled a surf contest for Sunday (9 am check-in!), though as the conditions are predicted to favour the groms (1-2 ft), the hungover ┬áChristians will have a get out for their poor performances.

Thought for the week: have you ever tried to pour a glass of wine without taking the lid off?

Local surf roots

The Red Barn has been home to Woolacombe’s surfers since the sport washed up on North Devon’s shores. Back at the start of the sixties the Surf Life Saving Club formed on Woolacombe Beach, shortly followed by the professional lifeguard service, and with The Red Barn’s proximity to the beach we became an unofficial club house and meeting point for those involved.

The local and visiting surf scene found a welcome home in The Red Barn that carries on to this day. Check out the collection of classic surfboards we have on display in the rafters, most were either made or surfed by local surfing ‘legends’ here at Woolacombe!

The Red Barn is a sponsor of the Museum of British Surfing.
