Swapped the surfboard for skis https://www.coastlinesports.uk/swapped-the-surfboard-for-skis/ Sun, 16 Feb 2020 19:04:11 +0000 http://www.coastlinesports.uk/?p=943 I recently enjoyed a family holiday in Austria. Snow on the first day and then beautiful blue sky for the rest of the week. Really enjoy skiing but nothing quite matches the surf of North Devon.

Coasteering – the act of climbing up steep cliffs to leap into the depths of the water – is fast becoming a popular adventure activity across the UK. The adrenaline-pumping activity has the daring among us searching for more and more opportunities to challenge ourselves. While coasteering seems like an invention of the modern world, its history is something that stretches across the world as well as time. The act of jumping from height into water has cultural importance in all continents. Perhaps the most striking of examples is one in 18th-century Hawaii. In 1770, King Kahekili, the last of Maui’s independent rulers, leapt from an incredible 63ft height! The cliff was known as “Pu’u Keka’a”, although it is now more commonly known as ‘Black Rock’. From this cliff’s edge, King Kahekili landed in the waters of Kaunolu Bay. After this absolutely astounding feat, Kahekili gained the nickname “The Birdman”. From that point on, as a show of loyalty and courage, he demanded that all his warriors make the same jump!If jumping from great heights has your tummy turning – don’t worry! Every coasteering adventure is customisable to the individual, meaning that you can take on as much or as little as you want, with no Hawaiian king trying to convince you otherwise. This means that coasteering is the perfect activity for a newbie or a seasoned veteran. All sections of our routes are optional. If you don’t feel up to a specific challenge, our qualified and experienced guides will find a more suitable route for you. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible and enjoy your time with us. With no training required and the ability to easily adapt the routes you take, coasteering is an experience for everyone. Coasteering caters for all adrenaline junkies, whether you’re the high-fuelled expert or the intrepid beginner.

We recently spent a week with the kids on holiday in North Devon. The highlight was booking a coasteering session with Coastline Sports. We met in the National Trust car park on Baggy Point near Croyde. All we needed to bring were a pair of old trainers. Coastline Sports supplied the wet-suits, helmets and life vests. A safety talk and short walk and we were ready to explore the rocky North Devon coast. It was fab. We jumped into pools, swam through gullies, experienced the ‘washing machine’ and crawled through seaweed strewn caves. We heard stories about smugglers and stood in their caves! Wonderful experience for adults and children. Thanks to Will.
