21st May 2019: Name for new Exmouth watersports centre revealed
– Grenadier announce new Exmouth watersports centre to be named ‘Sideshore’ –
Grenadier, the local developer for the new watersports centre on Exmouth seafront, have today revealed that the centre will be named ‘Sideshore’. The inspiration for the name is firmly seated in watersports with “Sideshore” being a term referring to the winds blowing parallel to the shore – the most desirable direction for kitesurfing. Similarly, the name is also a clear nod to the seafront as Grenadier and key tenants Edge Watersports and Michael Caines look to promote Exmouth as the watersports destination in the UK.
The centre, which is being developed on a not-for-profit basis by Grenadier, will see part of Exmouth waterfront transformed into a brand-new water sports facility for the community. The development which is Phase 2 of the wider plans was given the green light by East Devon District Council in June 2018 with construction scheduled to begin this summer.
