What you'll do

Meet your instructor at Widemouth Beach (Not Blackrock) by the Freewave Surf Academy surf trailer which is at the top of the steps to the beach and by the RNLI Lifeguard hut.

You will get you suitably sized up with a toasty warm wetsuit, soft surfboard, leash and identity vest before heading down on to the sand. Here we have a discussion about communication in the water, safety as well as some interesting facts about the beautiful Widemouth Bay. You will also learn about how to catch and ride waves safely. Before hitting the surf we get our bodies ready with a good warm-up and possibly a bit of beach yoga. Then its time to hit the surf and to see what surfing is all about.

Excellent experience, having never done anything like this before, Samantha and I were daunted at first, but Charlie was great and made us feel at ease. His coaching techniques were great. If we’re back down this way in the future, we’ll be sure to do this again!! Thank you.

Great introduction to surfing with passionate instructors. Incredible location for it too, and a bargain compared to other sessions I've seen advertised elsewhere.

Driving wind and rain didn’t dampen this experience . The team were super supportive and made sure we all had a safe and brilliant time.

My son and I completely loved this experience as first time surfers. Abby was great at ensuring the course catered for each and every one of us meaning we all had the best experience.

Thank you Robin for giving my partner and I the confidence to get out and attempt some surfing! By the end we felt ready to get out there and give it a go on our own. It's a shame we couldn't stay in Bude for longer, otherwise we would have booked another session with Robin. Thank you again x
