Surf rafting is a new activity invented by Vertical Descents and brought to the shores of the UK so everyone can have a great time in the waves. This new and exciting activitiy is amazing and a must do for everyone. 

Surfing is one of the most popular and fastest growing board sports but you can only do it by yourself. Now we can do it together in a group on a raft. White water rafting is one of our most popular and specialist activities as is surfing, combining the two just came naturally and what fun it is. 

We will load up our specially designed surf rafts with six people and a guide and take you out on the water. Once you have got to grips with the raft and how to paddle it we will take you into the surf.
