Our flat water activities have really taken off in the last few seasons and we can take you Stand up Paddle Boarding (SUP) or Coasteering if the surf is not present on your chosen dates, this allows you to book sessions in advance (and accommodation) knowing full well an exciting activity awaits whatever the weather! The Coasteering sessions have been a real hit and the feedback we have been receiving speaks for itself, we are really lucky to have the perfect location a short drive from our K10 Store offering everything from huge caves and big jumps to wading through tidal pools hunting for crabs... If you fancy something a little more sedate we can take you on a SUP tour of the bay at Cayton with the Paddleboards the perfect way to explore the stunning Yorkshire coastline...
On site our K10 Bay Shop offers full hire facilities of everything surf related, hot snacks and drinks, toilets, changing facilities, cheap £2 all day parking and free hot showers! The bay is also home to some of the best beach break waves on the East Coast, surfable through all stages of tide and offering a good variety of conditions whilst being one of the few if not the only beach surfable during high tides. Cayton really is the perfect one stop surf destination, clean water and the RNLI safety cover through the Summer months further add to it's popularity.
Our first Surf Lessons were run from a mobile surf school back in 2007, with Our main store Secret Spot also providing hire equipment and top end surf gear from as far back as 1989. In 2008 we took over K10 Bay Surf Shop - the perfect location for our hire centre and Surf School which has gone from strength to strength, 25 years after first starting out. We have moved with the times online also and consider ourselves to be the foremost cold water specialists in Europe providing tried and tested top end kit as well as lesson vouchers!
