About us

Surfside Kayak Hire is a family run business, we have been avid kayakers for over 30 years including 15 years in and around Combe Martin. All our team are British Canoeing qualified and hold First Aid Certificates.

Surfside Kayak Hire have been hiring out kayaks and stand up paddle boards (SUP) in North Devon since 2008. In 2010, we started taking out small groups of customers on guided kayak tours. These sea kayak tours have become incredibly popular mainly due to the enthusiasm and care of our staff and because of the stunning scenery to be found in this area. Combe Martin is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) and is on the western edge of the beautiful Exmoor National Park. 

Here at Surfside we have given thousands of people a taste of kayaking in Combe Martin bay, many of whom have gone on to become regular kayakers. We aim to give our customers a value for money Sea kayaking experience that they will remember and treasure for years to come.
