We had an absolute blast. Bude is full of wannabe surfers. But i would say at least 1 lesson is a must, from there you can rent a board and improve your technique.

My children, 6 & 8 had lessons with Raven, I had to attend also as they don't take under 7 without a parent. Our instructor, Ben was very patient & helpful. You also get your full 2 hours after changing, getting to the beach etc. would use them again.

We had a great time learning to surf with Raven. Nicky was great organising everything and made us feel very comfortable. Stell, our instructor was brilliant, just the right level of humour and banter, great at recognising when one of the group was starting to feel despondent and always quick to give encouragement. We had a private lesson for three,... More

I've been to several different surf schools throughout the world, and I have to say Raven Surf are the best school I've been with. Super professional setup, really good quality gear, instructors that know their stuff but also a lot of fun! As an 'improver' I really felt that Raven have helped me onto that next level, and I'm confident... More
