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

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

Thank you for your response. We are now running private Stand Up Paddle board lessons all year long. It is also a great alternative to surfing when the surf is flat and as you found out it is a lot of fun. It is great for developing your core fitness and very achievable. I hope you continue in the lakes... More

We had a great day learning to surf in Bude. Great instructors who went out of their way to be friendly and to make it loads of fun. They catered well for adults and children but all the time keeping it all really safe. Good equipment and having indoor changing rooms and nice hot showers were an added bonus! Thanks... More

Had an absolutely fantastic morning learning to surf. Our instructor was incredibly friendly and allocated his time evenly between everyone in the group. We learnt a lot in the time we had. Very worthwhile and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn to surf or wishes to improve.

I took a surf lesson in Bude with about 10 friends and we all loved it. Everyone was standing on the board at some point during the session despite multiple levels of competency. The instructor was conscientious and split his efforts appropriately amongst the group. Strongly recommend this for anyone interested in trying or progressing with surfing.

Thank you for your review. Here at the school we like to make sure that every single person in the group receives the the right amount of attention. We also like to pitch the information at the correct level for each group as every group is different. More

All enjoyed the lesson, however my husband wasnt very good perhaps being six foot two doesnt help however both girls loved and both were able to stand up on the board with confidence by the end of the lesson....

Booked a surf lesson for my son and husband for his birthday treat and they had a great time and came back exhausted. What I appreciated most about this was the way the instructors spoke to my son who is 5 - they treated him great and I saw him swell with confidence and have a real crack at surfing.... More
