OSKC watersports – Outdoor Shop and Kayak Centre is located on the edge of Exmoor in Combe Martin, North Devon and is the premier kayak and stand up paddle board hire, sales and watersports centre in North Devon. We are a fourth generation family run business that offer various watersport activities including sea kayaking, kayak and stand up paddle board hire and lessons. One of our most popular activities is our kayak “Cave and Beach” sea kayaking guided tour. We are the only company operating out of Combe Martin that is fully AALA licensed along with being the only company that has qualified British Canoeing sea kayak leaders. We use the latest, British made, easy to use sit on top kayaks. Our kayak guides are all local and the most experienced and qualified within the area.
Combe Martin is arguably one of the best and safest areas for kayaking and stand up paddle boarding in the UK. There are around 3km of coastline to safely explore with many private beaches, caves and coves only accessible from the sea. The area is rich in wildlife with seals, porpoise, dolphins, fulmars and peregrine falcons often spotted.
Sea kayaking and stand up paddle boarding is quickly becoming very popular and one of the “must things to do” when on holiday or visiting North Devon. Our activity centre is ideally located just metres from Combe Martin beach with public parking right next door. Unfortunately, owing to covid 19, most of our centre facilities including toilets and changing will remain unavailable until further notice.
We believe our experience and expertise is second to none, owner and head instructor has alone more than 30 years of maritime experience in both a professional and personal capacity. He is a qualified instructor, sea kayak leader and was the areas manger and trainer for HM Coastguard for nearly 10 years. You really couldn’t be in safer or better hands when kayaking or stand up paddle boarding in North Devon!!
