Boardriders winning team

Boardriders Win!

Congratulations go out to Woolacombe Boardriders Surf Club for winning the Open at the British Interclubs at Bude this past weekend. Some team members did better than others of course, but we won’t mention names will we B’cat. That’d be bad karma, eh?

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.
