Welcome to Big Blue Surf School

We are based in Bude, North Cornwall and have been teaching people to surf for over 15 years. In that time we have safely and successfully introduced almost 30,000 men, women and children to our wonderful sport. Many return to us year after year.

So you’re thinking of learning to surf? Great! Whether you are looking for a great family day out in the South West or for surfing lessons for your kids, for your school, just for women and girls, or as a group or corporate event, then you’ve come to the right place. As long as you are over 8 years old, are reasonably fit and can swim 50 metres we can teach you to surf.

We are one of just a few surf schools with top International Surfing Association qualifications and keep a higher coach to student ratio than most surf schools – because learning to surf safely is vital.

We have coaches who are specially trained to provide surf tuition for disabled children and children with autism.

We are open all year around, as we now have extra thick wetsuits to keep you all toasty warm in those cooler months!

All the information you need is right here – but if we’ve missed anything or you’re ready to enquire about booking then please contact us.
