Booked my daughter and her friends in for surf lessons with Atlantic pursuits during our week in widemouth bay. Sam and his team are fantastic, the coaching was fantastic, and the girls were standing very quickly. Safety was paramount with Sam who spent the whole time in the water with the girls ensuring their safety. The girls now have the... More

My 3 teenage children and myself had a fantastic time learning to surf with Sam, the instructor at Atlantic Pursuits. Good quality wetsuits and boots were provided and surfboards. Sam provided just the right level of instruction and safety briefing and allowed us plenty of time to practice and have some fun. He also had another trainee surf coach with... More

Fantastic, safe and excellent instruction. Sam knew just how to pitch his teaching for our family group of Mum, Dad and boys age 16 and 11. We all had so much fun and quickly got to grips with surfing/boarding. We are absolutely hooked thanks to Sam's introductory lessons. He was really encouraging and I felt completely safe ( this was... More

We'd seen some larger group lessons with other surf schools and were worried we were going to stand on the beach for most of the lesson to then be policed rather than taught how to ride the... More

My partner and I came to Bude for a few days in which we had a couple of days surfing. Sam was amazing, one of the best surfing instructors you can get, with loads of knowledge of the area, the security that he has been a lifeguard on these beaches for years and a great person in general we knew...

Excellent afternoon in an open canoe on the Bude canal. Had my 7yr old transfixed. Rather enjoyed it myself too. Sam added information & humour to the experience. Thoroughly recommend.
