Cayton Bay is beautiful and the waves were... More

I've been a regular at Scarborough Surf School lessons for the past month and it has been such an enjoyable experience. Surfing is something I've always wanted to do, a high entry on my bucket list. When at the beach I always found myself distracted by and observing the surfing skills on display and wishing that could be me! It... More

We decided to do Coasteering as a team building exercise with work. some of our group were slightly apprehensive as to what to expect but by the end everybody had pushed their limits and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Great day coasteering with Jack and Tommo. They were both great with the younger members of the group (aged 9) who were soon putting us older ones to shame. The best thing we did this summer.
