A fully mobile solution giving you complete flexibility.

The NCS Surf Hire tent will once again be operating at Crackington Haven this summer. We provide the best quality equipment coupled with good, honest local knowledge based on over 30 years experience of surfing at Cracky and around North Cornwall.
We will only hire equipment suited to your ability. In addition we will not hire out equipment if we believe conditions are unsuitable or will become unsuitable.
During their season, we liaise closely with the local RNLI lifeguards with regard to possible beach closures due to safety conditions and take this into account when hiring equipment.

Would you like to try one of the fastest growing and most exciting sports going? Maybe you've already had a surf lesson and want the opportunity to practice your new skills or perhaps you just want to get out there and give it a go. Either way we have the equipment to get you going and start having the time of your life!

As members of the RNLI's Surf Hire Safety Scheme you are assured that the equipment you hire from us is regularly maintained and inspected and is appropriate for your ability and experience. We also provide general surf safety advice as well as beach specific advice with regard to both safety and the best surf conditions.


Boards - The boards we hire are our own brand soft surfboards available in 6', 7', 8' and 9' lengths. These boards are excellent for learners, improvers and intermediates. They meet the requirements of The British Surfing Association for learner use, are Irish Surfing Association Approved and are used by many surf schools throughout the UK and Ireland . Due to their soft construction the boards provide a very safe introduction to surfing for children and adults alike. More competent surfers will be surprised to discover how “surfable” these boards are. They are truly great all rounders!

6' Model

6' x 20" x 3" - A great little kids surfboard as well as for intermediates and improvers. Nice and manoeuvrable whilst retaining stability and buoyancy.

7' Model
7' x 21 ½" x 3 ¼" - A perfect learner surfboard for children and ideal as an intermediate and improvers board

8' Model
8' x 22 ½" x 3 ½" - The standard softboard length for most surf schools and the best all rounder. Suitable for children and adults. Its extra width gives good stability and buoyancy together with great paddling speed

9' Model
9' x 23 ¾" x 3 ¾" - A very wide surfboard with lots of volume, giving excellent stability and buoyancy for those larger adults who are new to the sport

Wetsuits - We use mainly Xcel wetsuits and will provide an appropriate suit for the season in which you are hiring. This will normally mean 3/2mm suit for summer use, moving to a 4/3 or 5/3 suit plus boots for winter use.

Roof Straps - Creatures of Leisure soft roof racks can be hired to transport your boards on the roof of your car.
