How much do the sessions cost?
You may be eligible for a part or full subsidy, so details will be sent to you once you have completed an application form.
Where will I find you?
At the far end of Summerleaze Beach Car Park, Bude EX23 8HN. Follow the signs to Bude from the A39, go past Morrisons on the right-hand side and carry on until you reach a mini roundabout. Turn right towards Bude town centre and along the canal. Take the first left in front of TSB Bank, to Summerleaze Beach Car Park.
What are the meeting arrangements?
Please meet us at the ‘Big Blue Surf School’ trailer in Summerleaze car park, about 10 minutes before your lesson.
Is there parking?
Yes – Pay and Display, with disabled bays close to our trailer. There are only two of these bays, and during peak times, such as school holidays, the car park may be full. There is another, larger car park at the next bay along, Crooklets Beach and it is a 5 – 10 minute walk back to Summerleaze across the coastal path.
What facilities are there?
There are public toilets in the car park, including a separate disabled toilet. Personal items such as keys can be left in the van or with our on-site team member (all at your own risk) but we would recommend leaving personal items with a family member or in your car. There is also a large beach hut near our trailer that has some changing facilities.
What do I need to bring?
Swimwear, towel, sunscreen, suitable clothing for afterwards, any relevant medication you may
need (e.g. inhaler), snacks or drinks for afterwards
Do you provide everything?
We will provide you with a surfboard, wetsuit and, during the colder months, boots/hat/gloves if needed.
What if I want to cancel or change my lesson?
Contact us as soon as you know, and if we can arrange an alternative date we will. We can arrange a refund if applicable, as long as you are able to give 7 days notice, before your lesson date.
What happens if the weather or conditions are not suitable?
If we consider the beach, weather or surf conditions unsuitable for surf tuition, we may cancel the lesson and will try to give you as much notice as possible. In these circumstances, we will offer you an alternative date or issue a refund (if applicable).
