Surf contest

Grunta League One . . at last

After a year of being in the contest doldrums, big thanks go out to Josh Witts (and various reliable assistants) for getting a Grunta League contest run this last Saturday 19th.  Open, womens and junior divisions were contested for by an enthusiastic selection of Woolacombe Boardriders with sponsorship goodies being supplied by Rip Curl.

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.
