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 have introduced stand up paddle (SUP) to the club and we have an active surf and SUP contest scene.

“Lifeworks” event at Saunton

Dear Hot Doggers,
During the winter we talked about the “Lifeworks” event at Saunton which will be the morning of Saturday the 27th of June. This is where autistic (etc) children come to Saunton for a surfing experience. They go out to waist depth water on a SUP and are pushed / accompanied by someone with surfing experience, then do it again. It is hard work, tiring and frustrating. There is no pay. The free t shirt does not seem to get worn again in public and sometimes there is a BBQ. People work in pairs for about two to three hours.

Can you ask your members if any would be silly enough to volunteer this year, please, and if any can you get them to ring or e-mail me so I can finalise numbers. 01271 813816 or barrie.charlesworth@talktalk.net .
