Ocean Warriors has been looking after the surf and watersports needs of visitors and locals along the North Coast of N.Ireland since 1992. Nowadays you can find us where we love to be most, at the Beach!
The stunning Causeway Coast of N.Ireland offers jaw dropping vistas and many areas of outstanding natural beauty, all of which can be explored by land or sea, which is were we come in!
The Ocean Warriors beach shop is easily spotted as you drive onto Portstewart Strand. We're open daily over July and August and at weekends from Easter through to September (depending on weather / surf conditions) and offer everything you need for an epic day at the beach without the hassle of lugging around wet sandy gear, or the expense of buying equipment.
We offer surfboard, bodyboard , stand-up paddleboard (SUP), wetsuit and sit-on-top kayak hire, alongside all the essentials needed for a great day at the beach from a bucket and spade to suncream! We have wetsuits and equipment for all the family from babies to the biggest of Dads! We also stock a huge range of kites from kids to adults - gentle fluttering butterfly kites to power kites!
Outside of our daily summer opening hours - 10 am - 6pm over July and August, we also open by special request for small groups of friends, birthdays, stag / hen, corporate or other occasions – just pop us a private message via our Facebook page, or call 07921164134, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We also work alongside a number of local surf schools if you’d like to arrange a lesson.
Portstewart Strand is a multi-activity, all year round destination that offers much more than just a beach experience. The area is steeped in history from the first human settlers on the island of Ireland, who lived just up the river from 7600 - 7900BC at Mountsandel in Coleraine, to the American troops who trained on the Strand before heading off to WWII. Nowadays there's lots of active water sports options - surfing, body boarding, paddle boarding, kayaking, jet skiing, sailing, fishing, sea swimming alongside great running trails, kite flying, amazing walks and stunning environments to explore. It's great fun to venture into the dunes which have beautiful flower and fauna with delicate orchids and an exceptional amount of bird life and butterflies. On the far side of the dunes you'll find the River Bann meandering past you on it's journey from Lough Neagh to the sea at the Barmouth, which is at the end of the 2.5km Portstewart Strand. This important environment is managed and maintained by the National Trust all year round who do everything from removing rubbish, to removing invasive plant species. You can park on the sands and there is an entrance fee that goes to the National Trust, or members gain free entry.
