Arnside Bore


Event details

Arnside Bore wave: This trip will only run if we have a good wave on Friday. I will post an update here by 18:00 on Friday to confirm or cancel depending on the quality of the wave.

This trip is confirmed, today, Friday, we paddled out almost to Silverdale and managed to get a ride for about 20 minutes heading towards Grange, then the wave dissipated. We chased the tide for another 20 minutes and a couple of us managed to get a very brief surf just before the take out. The plan is to get even further out, for a longer ride but not bother chasing the tide once the wave disappears.

6. Venue : Arnside

7. Meet location / time : at Arnside promenade at  10:00


8. Meet to share lifts at: none needed

9. Anything else:  It’s tricky for first timers as a very powerful wave over shallow water, therefore it’s easy to get tripped up 

Tide height is 9.55 (Ramsden Dock )so there should  be a good bore wave???

HW is at 13.48 Barrow so aim to be on the water at Arnside at 10:20

Should be back in Arnside by 12.40

River or sea kayaks. 

If intending to ride borewave must have a solid first time roll.

You can join us and just follow the bore wave if you don't wish to surf on it 

Not suitable for novices.

Please read notes re river trips here:


I am happy to co-ordinate and lead the trip. However, as we will be a team, we are jointly responsible for each other’s safety on the water.

Please ensure you carry the correct kit for the trip you are attending.
