Surfing lessons in Widemouth Bay, Bude

Surf Lessons with Freewave Surf Academy

Whether you are surfing for the first time or looking to improve your technique, a surf lesson with an experienced instructor, is a great way to give you the skills and confidence you could be looking for!

By far the best way to start surfing or to improve your ability is to get instruction from skilled and experienced coaches. It is amazing how simple it is to get riding waves when provided with appropriate instruction, practical knowledge and the right equipment. In fact, we guarantee to get you riding waves! And when you’re up on that surfboard riding your first wave, it will be one of the most exhilarating experiences you’ll ever have!

Whether you’re an absolute beginner – you don’t even have to know what a surfboard looks like – and want to try surfing for the first time, or you’ve surfed before and want to improve your skills and technique, our friendly instructors will get you surfing with confidence.

Our lessons are held in small groups that allow for more personal attention. We also offer one-to-one surf sessions, please contact us for more information and bookings.

We offer a variety of surfing experiences from Taster Sessions, Group session discounts, One-to-One lessons and Junior Lifeguard taster sessions, in fact, we have something to suit all ages, budgets and levels of expertise.

We have a range of surfing packages to suit everyone!

Our Surf Experience package includes all the theory and practical instruction covered in our Taster Surf session (please see above), but with the second session giving you more knowledge and practise to advance your surf skills, including aspects such as turning your surfboard, angled take-offs, surf etiquette and more. Extra time in the water under the supervision of our expert and friendly instructors really gets your surfing skills going.

Our aim is to leave you with the confidence and knowledge after your full Surf Experience to rent a suit and board, and jump in the flagged area on your own!
