Muddy says: if there is any place that is going to get a Muddy editor out on the water, on a Sunday morning, on a stand up paddleboard, it’s this brilliant watersports centre, based on beautiful Back Beach in Teignmouth.
10 years in and this thriving watersports centre on the South Devon coast has established a stellar reputation for training in all things water-based, from paddle board tuition, to sailing qualifications, even getting ready to row the Atlantic if, err, paddling 2500 miles is your bag.
I’ve first-hand experience of being tempted onto the water by one of the owners of this family-run business, Sue Cox (let’s just say this is not my normal “safe habitat”) and was hugely impressed by how friendly, professional and fun this place is. The team are highly qualified to do the job, taking the fear out of learning and the range of activities for all ages and abilities is immense.
If you’ve kids who were born waterbabies, be sure to check out the website for a packed schedule of activities during school holidays, or for birthday party fun, and, if you’ve a burning desire to learn something new, whilst getting a lungful of fresh sea air, give them a call for inspiration on a tailor-made experience. You’ll be a siren of the seas in no time.
