Surf and Turf

This Wed 16 July come and join in with us and get a FREE Surf lesson!


Once a year in partnership with Crantock Bay Surf School we offer a free surf lesson to reward anyone who helps us for a morning of grassland management. For a few hours we will be tackling common ragwort, a much misunderstood native plant. Although an essential plant for 30 invertebrate species, as a landowner we have to prevent it’s spread to nearby grazing land. Then in the afternoon we’ll whip you back to Crantock Bay where you’ll take a dip in the ocean, spending 2 to 3 hours learning all the surfing* basics. All equipment provided, just bring some lunch, a towel and swimwear and clothing suitable for the weather.

Time: 10am – 6pm
Meet: at the National Trust Crantock beach car park SW 789 608 TR8 5RN Free parking for all helpers for the day.

Don’t fancy a surf? Just come along and help with the ragwort management until 3pm
*N.B. Surfing is weather and tide dependant and may be replaced by stand up paddle boarding. Limited spaces for the surfing so get booked on quick!

Tools, gloves and tuition: all provided by National Trust
Bring: food and drink, footwear and clothing suitable for the weather and task
Free. 10am – 4pm

Booking essential so that we can contact you if there are any last minute changes or cancellations. Please call the rangers on 01208 863821 or email
