Steph & Eric Bridge

Eric & Steph first begin their watersports business in Exmouth with ‘Spinnakers’. This was an evolving dinghy sailing school which was a huge part of their growing family lives. The site became built on at the same time as kitesurfing was getting popular so it became apparent that teaching Kitesurfing would also be a great lifestyle choice!!! We never had to repair a dinghy again!

Edge was born at the ‘Edge’ of the duck pond in 2003 where we ran the shop & centre before also getting evicted again to make way for a Pub.

We soon established the business at The Harbour while always looking for a site closer to Exmouth Seafront. We are in transition now as we look forward to being part of the new centre & facility that will provide watersports users with a hub to change, shower, eat & chill.

Our family of 3 boys which all kite surf, compete and get to to travel the world doing this are now a brand ‘’team-bridge’.

Assisted by a team of enthusiastic passionate instructors, Edge is an extension of what we are passionate about. The wind, the water, the ever changing weather, the ebb & flow of the tide, The thrill of boosting a massive jump, catching a wave, winning a regatta, paddling the river and ensuring that you are getting the most out of your sport.
