In their words...
why we love the North West
Stretching from the banks of the River Dee on the West Coast of Wirral, to the northernmost beaches of Cumbria, the north west of England has a varied and ecologically diverse coastline which is enjoyed by thousands of water users every year.
Known for its sweeping, shallow stretches of beach and prevailing Westerly winds during the summer months the north west is the perfect place during the summer for a multitude of water sports.
Towards the southern end of the north-west, the coastline surrounding the Wirral peninsular and Liverpool is fantastic for: windsurfing, kitesurfing, sailing, SUPing and kayaking due to its diverse ecology.
Head further north and to the Fylde and Cumbria coasts and you will be met with vast stretches of beach. The regions northern extremities, the Cumbrian hills, provide a dramatic backdrop to a coastline that has been shaped by the often violent short period swells of the Irish sea which regularly thrash this rugged and varied coastline throughout the winter months. There are a few surfable waves to be had for the intrepid and dedicated explorer and when they arrive they make for some incredibly memorable experiences.
