Ha ha! Thank you for your kind words. Maybe next time you could join them when surfing in Bude & learn some new terminology. There is much to learn or maybe Paddleboarding aka SUP is more your style.

Really enjoyed the surfing experience. Teacher seemed friendly, knowledgeable and was safety conscious. Equipment was in good condition. Never surfed before and found it to be hard work, but so much fun! Would defiantly go again when in Bude.

We went out on Paddle Boards not knowing what to expect. Learning to get on, kneel and stand we were able to go all the way up to the weir on a beautiful summers afternoon. Well worth it.
