Surfing in Devon
Devon is a county located in the southwest of England and it’s one of the most popular surfing areas in the country.

Besides the world class waves of Croyde there are many other breaks that can suit any kind of surfers from beginners to advanced. The best swell direction for this area is west and southwest and easterly winds are offshore in most of the beaches. The very exposed beaches break work throughout the whole year while the coves and sheltered spots break exclusively during wintertime.
