Thank you for your review. I am glad your hen weekend was a success and your sister enjoyed her time here. I think you will agree that Stand Up Paddleboarding is such a fun and great activity to do together as a group, also highly achievable with just a few helpful tips. I hope you had a relaxing time and... More

Wife's Birthday. Stuck for ideas. We got married in Bude. Love the place, decided to return. Booked Fizz a Stand Up Paddle boarding course with Scott for the birthday afternoon, but unfortunately the weather took a turn for the worst (well, it was August!) and although it would have been great for surfing, not so for learning to paddle board....

I booked my ten year old daughter in for two lessons. She'd never been surfing before but had always dreamed of doing it. From the super friendly instructors (straight out of Point Break!), the equipment, to the beach venue this was fantastic. It bought tears to our eyes to see my little girl beaming with excitement and pride after both... More

I asked around and they recommended Bude Surfing Experience as the best in Bude. I really enjoyed my lesson and had a lot of fun. Customer service is great. Even after I had done the lesson, they still helped me with my queries. Five stars! GRACIAS! ;-) I will definitely be back. This is my first written review ever by... More

Booked the surfing for our family and extended family with plenty of notice. No deposit required. We turned up on the day to be met by Scott. What an absolute gentleman. He is a typical surfer dude and his instruction for our group (youngest 8 and eldest 42) was tip top. We all had an absolutely great time and our... More

We finished over an hour over time but there was no complaints. Sott and Keith you guys are the best! My 7 year... More

Terrible customer service. Ignorant instructor, Scott. Was very rude to us. I would not recommend this to anyone, specially those with children, age was judged straight away without a care at all. Hope no one else has to experience this like we did.

I booked a surfing lesson as a surprise for me and my boyfriend, from the moment I rang up I felt that I was receiving a very personalised service. I was told all the information I needed including what to bring, what would be happening during the lesson and where to park. On arriving we were a little nervous, especially... More

Thank you for your review. We do like to provide a very personal service and try to provide you with all the information before you get here to make everything runs smooth. The instructor to pupil ratio is 1:8 but very often we operate with smaller numbers meaning you receive an even better service but whatever the group size you... More

Hi Scott, thank you so much for the individual lesson you took with our 12 year old son Hugo. It was his first surfing experience and i couldn´t believe that after half an hour he already rode some waves. Being a bit anxious as it was the first time for our son we were reassured by your spot-on preparation and... More
