Competitors after the 2014 Kings Race

Kings Race 2014

A few well deserved pints of reviving Tribute and Red Barn Ale after some paddle, swim, paddle competitive action. Thanks to Freddie & Nicola for organising another successful Kings Race and to St Austell for helping us to be able to give everyone a free isotonic beer! (All claims to the health benefits of beer are based purely on personal experience – no scientific facts were used in this statement.)

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.
