- Mountain Biking v Surfing
I got back into mountain biking after a 10 year hiatus as a result of being miles from the nearest surf break. Now live in Devon and enjoy both but if I’ve got the chance to hit the beach with a decent swell running then the bike is left in the garage.
That said I’m definitely a better mountain biker than I am a surfer…. I took up surfing far too late in life to get to a decent level but still really enjoy it which I guess is what it’s all about.
I think there are a lot of parallels – feeling you get on a really good wave is similar to that of getting a good flow on the bike.
Yesterday I managed to combine a surf in the morning with a ride in the afternoon – really can’t ask for more from life than that!Posted 4 years agoceepersSubscriber
North devon, great waves and exmoor on your doorstep, quantocks an hour away
I have fun trails from my front door and 5 breaks within 10 minutes drive!
Surf when it’s on, ride when it’s not. I’m far less stress about whether there’s surf since I started riding and get my jollies that way.
I’ll always surf if its good tho!Posted 4 years ago

what’s trail access like in the west country. didn’t see many paths in the same way as in sussex.
Cheeky or non existent in cornwall.
Best off living in Devon and going to the coast when it’s on.
I’d echo thatPosted 4 years agoandrewniMember
I find it hard to have two hobbies (my wife refers to them as obsessions) at the same time. For me it would have to be one or the other. At the minute I’d happily ride past someone motor-biking, surfing, fishing, jet ski-ing etc etc and not spare a thought for any of my former hobbies/”obsessions”Posted 4 years ago
