Surfing at Croyde Bay
Fantastic waters... at Ruda

Our holiday park is so close to Croyde's stunning beach that you can almost guarantee you'll be first to the famous beach breaks. In fact, you are practically on the beach.

With great conditions throughout the year and a number of world famous events if you love surfing holidays then you will love Ruda Holiday Park in Devon and Croyde Bay beach.

Croyde's beachbreak really is famous for a reason!

Three-Sixty magazine's Bodyboard Manual says:

"Croyde works on all tides but is best at low tide when it gets hollow. High tide produces a long, peeling wave. Works on winds from SE-NE and a southerly swell.

The reef at Croyde works on a biggish swell and the bowl section is pretty intense. Beginners should avoid surfing or bodyboarding at low tide as rip currents can occur."
