A guide to your Woolacombe stag do

It may be a small seaside town but a Woolacombe stag do has a smorgasboard of delectable treats for you and the guys to create the ultimate stag weekend. Forget the likes of Muscle and Palm Beach, Woolacombe has everything you could possible want from a beautiful coastal destination. Put together a package that incorporates a heady mix of thrilling outdoor activities with glorious summer nights, washed down with a cool glass of scrumpy.


If you're heading for stag do in Woolacombe, then you'd be a fool not to include activities that make use of the coastal splendour. Naturally, water based activities are on top form, with surfing, coasteering and kayaking firm stag favourites. Launch yourselves into force as you tackle some of Britain's most glorious and unreliable weather. What's great about what Woolacombe offers is that sometimes the more brutal the weather, the better the experience. We're not talking gale force winds and torrential rain here, but just enough wind speed to make surfing and kayaking adventures come to life as you and the guys battle the elements.

Is that a longboard in your trunks or are you just pleased to see me?

One of the favourites for any Woolacombe stag do is surfing and surfers world wide glide to its shores to ride the waves. Although stereotypically a summer sport, surfing can be just as enjoyable in the winter months, although the water may be slightly chillier. Our expert instructors know how to forecast the temperament of the waves easily and can guarantee epic waves all year round to learn how to effortlessly glide on a surfboard. We'll have you looking like a Californian surfing god in no time, you just might have to buy the golden hair and tan in a bottle first… 


Here's some surfing slang to get you started:

  • Chubby Checker - Usually a particular breed of male that spends all day discussing the conditions and checking out the best waves but never actually gives it a go. You can usually spot which one it is by the six pack he's carrying and we don't mean the one on his waist!
  • Amped - Excited or enthusiastic. As in, "Dude I'm like, totally amped for Matt's stag do"
  • Boner style - It's not actually what you might imagine! It's a surfer who has a very stiff style and doesn't move around a lot.
  • Frube - Someone who doesn't catch a wave all day. Poor Frube.
  • Big Kahuna - The best surfer on the beach. Comes from the Hawaiian term for a man with excellent surf skill!

So book our Surfs Up package and get amped up! Don't be a chubby checker, ride those waves, even if you do have boner style and don't worry if you become a frube, we'll still think you're a Big Kahuna!
