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.

Had two lessons whilst I was down in Bude this summer. Enjoyed them so much I didn't want to stop! I could easily have spent the rest of the day in the sea. Scott is a great tutor, kept it simple and basic, so it was easy to learn. Gave us some great tips for surfing and safety. Very happy... More

We had a fantastic few hours attempting to learn how to surf while on holiday in Bude. Scott and Harry are so friendly and make you feel relaxed immediately. We are 2 families with 5 children ranging in age from 7 up to 15. I cannot recommend this lovely local businesses enough. A must for everyone.

Scott and team took a large family group of us over two sessions, mostly complete beginners and everyone managed to ride their first waves. We all had so much fun that now most have been bitten by the surfing bug, particularly the kids. Bude and the beaches nearby are ideal locations. The instructors were all great and set just the...

Thank you Scott, Harry and John. Not sure what to expect, my son was having a go at this for the first time arranged by his Aunty. Wet suits were provided. Expert tuition was given first on the dry and this then continued in the surf. He thoroughly enjoyed himself, very nearly standing. They then had a second go, this... More

My 10 year old grandson had his first lesson. He had a fantastic time and rode his first wave in by the end of his lesson. Many thanks to all the staff who are very friendly. They are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. So if you are a complete novice or have some experience. They will make sure you have the... More

Booked two lots of surfing lessons and both were excellent. Mike, Harry and Scott were great guys, took the time to explain things and gave really good practical help in the sea to get the best experience (i.e. up on the board) out of the sessions. Really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely book again.

I really enjoyed my paddle boarding (S.U.P) lesson with Scott. Scott is a great teacher, very enthusiastic and put me at ease very quickly. I would definitely recommend if you are going to Bude.
