Boards and Bikes is a service offered ont he coast of Northumberland that allows you to hire out surf boards, body boards, wet suits and yep you've guessed it bikes. I sent an e-mail via the website and was told that in September we didn't have to book anything and just to give them a ring the day before we wanted something. I dutifully did this and was told that they would deliver the suits and body boards to our holiday home or could meet us on the beach. Well I thought this was brilliant so had 4 wetsuits and boards delivered to our holiday home.The van turned up bang on time and we soon were well kitted out for the very reasonable sum of £40 for the half day. We arranged for collection and were soon out enjoying the sea and beach of seahouses. Given my rather scathing view of the Blue Reef Aquarium I can happily say that I would much rather spend that money hiring out this kit. We had a fantastic time and had been given some advice regarding safety about where we were boarding.The service also offers surfing lessons, which if we didn't have the kids I would have been more than happy to have a go at. The whole experience was a very professional, friendly service that gets you out enjoying the beautiful Nortumbrian countryside....I cannot recommend this service enough!
