Having first met Mike and the team at Raven Surf School over 7 years ago I was a little bit nervous coming to my first lesson. I was instantly reassured by how lovely the instructors are and that i wasnt the only first time surfer either. Also they promised that i would stand up on the board in the first... More

First time surfers, had great guidance. Relaxed coaches, esp Stell. We enjoyed so much we booked a 2nd lesson the same week. So much fun, we even had all three of us up surfing same wave! (Eventually! ) Would happily recommend them.

Raven was recommended to me by a friend, and having had some lessons at the start of September I can see why. Stel was a really positive instructor, there were clear goals in every lesson, a focus on safety, but lots of fun too. Also great recommendation from Nicky about booking accommodation. If you want to learn to surf in... More

I booked a couple of lessons at Ravens Surf School after they were recommended to me by the owner of the cottage where we were staying. The lessons were brilliant - very well taught with clear instructions and a super friendly and professional teacher (Stel). I will definitely book again when I next visit Bude.

Myself and my husband booked to do a surfing lesson with these guys - neither of us had ever tried this before. Best time ever!!! We both really enjoyed it, especially me as I managed to stand up quite a few times. The whole team there is great, really friendly, helpful and supportive with whatever level you are comfortable with.... More

Last week my children had an amazing time at Raven Surf School - complete novices to standing on the boards in 2 lessons. The children loved it and are now hooked! Great tuition and support from all the staff especially Stel and Tully. Thank for organising the booking and certificates Nicky. Your a great team. Thank you.

Highly qualified and experienced. Always safety minded especially with kids. All our campers come back excited and hooked on surfing. Majority of learners manage to stand up on the board within the first or second lesson.Cannot praise them enough.

Just returned from a long weekend surfing in Bude, with an excellent introduction to the sport, courtesy of the Raven Surf School. Instructors were very attentive and gave constant guidance throughout the lessons; group sizes 5:1 on the first day and 4:1 on the second. Many thanks to Nicky, Mike, Beth and Tulley (&little Taylor) making it a fun and... More

Surfing with Raven Surf School was a great experience ! Everything was well organized, easy to understand and also price and equipment were really good. Teachers were patient and competent and my 14-years-old daughter had a wonderful time with them, even if the weather was so rainy and cold!

Just finished a week staying in Widemouth Bay receiving tuition and renting boards and wetsuits off the team at Raven Surf. Had a lesson on Sunday and Tuesday with Tully and then Mike. Both very patient and informative instructors. Fantastic instructor to student ratios at stated on the website. Every other day we rented wetsuits and boards from them. The... More
