Bigpeaks was started in the summer of 2000 initially as an on-line surf store. The following April we moved into the Store here on the Linhay Business Park, after buying the Mountain Bike Centre. That year we also sponsored the British Surf Team and helped the British Professional Surfing Association with promotion and Sponsorship.
We have also Sponsored the Welsh Open Surfing Championships, The British Universities Surfing Championships and their Snowboard Championships too. Over the years we have helped a great number of ‘riders’ with kit and sponsorship and have sought to ‘put back’ into the sports we have in store.
Many local podiums have been dominated by our ‘riders’ and they have gone on the win National Championships too. One of our riders even became a World Champion!
We like to encourage and help and to let ‘riders’ show what they can do and enjoy their own moments of success! We still keep in touch with our riders who have over the years become good friends!
For some years we have also co-promoted the Devon Dirt (just under 40 miles of off-road Mountain Bike Endurance over Dartmoor). We team up with the CTC to run the event annually, it starts from the Store on a Sunday in late April. Check out our Facebook for news.
