Freewave Surf Academy

Freewave Surf Academy is often called Bude’s premier surf school and lifeguard training centre. Enjoy a range of fantastic surfing experiences based at the famous surfing beach of Widemouth Bay, such as taster surf lessons, surf safaris and surf & stay packages. Our full day mini lifeguarding courses are also extremely popular as they teach young people the basics in aquatic first aid, beach knowledge, lifeguarding skills with a surf lesson too!

Freewave Surf Academy is a surf school/training centre providing a range of surfing experiences as well as intensive training for beach lifeguards and budding surfing instructors. We are based at Widemouth Bay, Bude, North Cornwall,  however we also provide lessons on many of Bude’s popular  beaches and some  quieter, hidden  beaches too

Freewave was set up by Robin Ross (Chief Instructor), a local surfer with  a passion for  teaching people how to surf. Robin has  spent over 12 years surf instructing and lifeguarding for the RNLI  on the Bude beaches  and will ensure your safety.   Robin  is the first person you talk to when getting in contact and the first person you meet when arriving. Robin takes some of  the surfing sessions and  runs  the training academy for surf instructors and lifeguards.

Dan Heard is the Head Coach at Freewave Surf Academy. A natural waterman who is full of life and ocean knowledge (he also has a bushy beard). He takes a large majority of the surf and training sessions as well as making sure that all of the equipment is maintained and at its best

We are very proud to be working with brother and sister duo Kieron and Beth for The Beach House in Widemouth Bay. They have just taken over the Hotel/Restaurant there and have some amazing ideas that we are all very excited about. The rooms are simple and the vibe is fun and friendly, the location…..lets just say you wont be walking very far to get to the beach!  We now offer food and/or accommodation with all of our experiences and some fantastic last minute deals of Surf & Stay packages.
