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.

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

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.

Scott then gave us a demonstration that took about 10 minutes. His instruction was clear and he demonstrated well. We then went into the water and practiced all... More
