Few know the pleasure of a Fylde coast wave or a Cumbrian beach break, however, they do exist! Perhaps a region better known for the Blackpool Tower and Premiere league football the North West has a varied and ecologically diverse coastline enjoyed by thousands recreational water users every year. Home to thriving kite surfing, windsurfing and sailing communities the coastline of the North West is a resource to be enjoyed, explored and protected.

In 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 diverse coast line throughout the winter months.
