The story…
Eric & Steph first began 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 was taken over for development at the same time as kitesurfing 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 getting evicted once more to make way for a Pub. We re-established the business at Exmouth Harbour while always looking for a site closer to Exmouth Seafront. This dream came true in 2020…

The new Watersports centre (opened October 2020) is a testament to both Steph, Eric & many other’s hard work as well as what Exmouth has become for Watersports. A worldwide destination for kitesurfing, wingsurfing, windsurfing, Hydrofoil & paddle boarding. Exmouth offers a huge variety of conditions at all states of Tide for all pillars of the pyramid. International athletes, members of the British Sailing Team for kitesurfing & world champions train and use the waters to keep them at the top of their sport. The Edge Experience is sure to leave you wanting more so come along and see us at ‘Sideshore’ where we can share some energy that the ‘Edge’ way brings.
