Surfing under the shadows of the cliffs and caves Saunton’s Hotdoggers surf club has been around for quite some time, this is how the club has evolved over the years: The club is the largest and longest running longboard club in the UK. It all started in the early 70’s with the Redwood Club, in 1984 it became the Chapter Hotdoggers, then in 1997 the club simply became THE HOTDOGGERS with the membership spiralling – thus becoming a nationally-recognised longboard surf club. Members ages range from 14 to over 70 years.
The Hotdoggers surfers are well travelled from France, Spain and Portugal to Hawaii, California, G Land, Australia and more. The club holds numerous contests throughout the year for all abilities, monthly gatherings, BBQs and other fun social events for members. The Hotdoggers club is about meeting new people, making friends and sharing sound advice but most of all it’s about having fun.
Our members range from juniors to the grand old masters and we cater for all abilities. The club has a great social and competitive scene running league events, social activities and even the famous annual surf trip, which this year is Sri Lanka.
‘In 2014 we introduced sup to our contest circuit and for 2021 we are including a waveski section for our local wave ski surfers to be able to compete against each other at saunton and becoming members of our saunton based club.
Whether you are interested in becoming the British champion or just hanging out with other loggers this is the club for you and your family.

Check out the amazing day we had at Lifeworks Breaking the Barrier surfing at Saunton Beach 2019.
Please can I, on behalf of my husband and Flynn pass on a massive thanks to yourselves and all the volunteers on Sunday. I am told the event was brilliant (by Flynn) and amazing (by my husband) – he said he had a little tear in his eye watching Flynn and the guys doing their stuff in the water!!. They both thoroughly enjoyed themselves – helped partly by the glorious weather – and could not express enough how lovely and kind and helpful everyone had been.”👍
