Water Sports

Surfing in Saltburn

Saltburn-by-the-Sea is probably the North East’s best known surf spot, listed in the top 10 places to surf in the UK. The surfing conditions in Saltburn make it a great place for learning to surf, and for experts to progress.

There are plenty of places to hire surf gear and if you’re new to the sport or want to progress your skills there are surfing schools that offer lessons.

Tees Barrage

For the more adventurous water sport lovers Tees Barrage is a short drive away.  The Tees Barrage, across the River, is used to control the flow of the river, preventing flooding and the effects of tidal change. The waters above the barrage are permanently held at the level of an average high tide and are used for water sports such as canoeing, jet skiing, dragon boat racing and incorporates a 1 km rowing course.

If you are a water-loving thrill seeker, you will find the following here:
White water rafting
Water skiing
Powerboat racing
