Bude Surfing Experience is a well established surf school who run surfing lessons on Summerleaze beach - the main surfing beach in Bude, North Cornwall. Summerleaze beach is surrounded by some great places to eat, drink and stay and you can access the shops in Bude town centre from the beach car park. At the surf school you can learn to surf or improve your surfing by joining a surf lesson lead by an experienced, highly qualified instructor. All lessons are suitable for all ages and abilities and are available everyday, all year round. You can also have a private 1:1 surf lesson or try Stand Up Paddle boarding (S.U.P). You can also hire equipment and pick up and drop off the gear from the beach car park. If you are part of a small or large group you can also book a private session just for you.

Kit supplied was quality, location great and the tuition clear, friendly and fun. My kids are hooked, what a result this means more week ends away with... More

My son (aged 6) had his first go at surfing with these guys and absolutely loved it. The original plan was for him and my other half to surf together but under 8's need an adult with them (which to be honest is fair enough, he's a competent swimmer but the currents and waves are a lot different to the...

If you like walks along the cliff top; - if you like watching cricket on the cliff top... More

We booked my son, aged 12, in to these two activities and he had a fantastic time. The instructors were lovely and really looked after the children. The atmosphere is great, really friendly and everyone had a good time. The groups were mixed ages and genders. This really made our break as the weather wasn't great but my son really... More

We took our three children - aged 8,10 and 11 to learn to surf with this company. They were excellent! The instructors were patient, fun and very professional. The girls loved their lessons and my husband and I also enjoyed our lessons - fun but informative. Scott (who runs it) is relaxed and friendly and will help to make your... More

Reinforcing what others have said, Scott is a great guy. We had a private lesson and he had my 7 year old up and surfing on his first wave!!! A relevant briefing (but not too long) and we were quickly into the sea. He took good care of my son whilst in the sea and he is still buzzing a... More

I have never surfed before but now I can catch a wave standing up and then land it because of this lesson! Scott the instructer was cool and funny. :)

Met in the car park for a family lesson, they supplied the equipment and the expertise and very kindly didn't laugh too much at our ineptitude. Scott, the instructor, was funny and knew his stuff. The kids were standing up by the end and if the adults, i.e. mostly me, weren't so out of shape then we may have done... More

Scott M, Owner at Bude Surfing Experience, responded to this review

If it is your first ever surf lesson we make it as easy as possible so that hopefully you can stand up whilst riding the wave. These moments are also great if you are sharing them with your family. It creates a great feeling amongst the group and with your instructors. More
