Sunset Surf Sessions

Learn to Surf with the beautiful setting sun behind you!

These sessions are smaller groups, quieter beaches and will be the surf sessions to remember!


Intermediate and Advanced

If you've surfed before but need help getting to your feet a bit more consistently, or you are looking to make your first turns or even hunting for barrels and hitting the lip, we are here to help!

Beginner Lessons

If you have never surfed before, we can help you catch your first waves and learn how to stand up on the surfboards to get you riding to the beach! 

More Fun, More Activities!

What else is there to do in and around Bude?

Here are a few of our favourite alternative activities to surfing!


Autistic and Disabled Surfing

The sea is great fun and everyone should be able to enjoy playing in the waves, so we try and make that happen. With adapted boards and one to one tuition these sessions are great fun and super safe!

About 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!
