An Immersive Surfing Course

Enjoy a weekend of tailored surfing tuition, beneficial beach yoga and delicious local food.

Start each day with a guided yoga session on the beach followed by an exhilarating surfing lesson in the beautiful Widemouth Bay. After your surf, roll into a delicious (and well deserved) lunch of while watching the video playback of your morning surf session.

Before your next surfing session, it’s time to take on board some surf theory to help you get the best out of your next dip in the sea. Feeling refuelled and re-energised, it’s time to suit up, hit the surf and put your new surfing skills into practice.

After your surf is a chance for you to give back to the beautiful Widemouth Bay with a beach clean, walk and talk with a local environmentalist. Then, as the evening draws in it’s time to mark your surfing success with a beer and pizza around the fire with your new surfing buddies!

The following day starts with some more beach yoga before hitting the Atlantic rollers with the Freewave Team. Enjoy a goodbye lunch before heading on your way or extending your stay. What better way to spend a weekend?

You don’t need to have any previous surfing or yoga experience to take part in our events. All of the activities are optional so you can dip in and out whenever it suits you. Come with a partner, friend, on your own or as an amazing group activity. Everyone will be made to feel welcome!

Many great British and European Champions have been born and raised on the waves in Widemouth Bay. It has gently breaking waves and a designated surfing area marked out by the RNLI Beach Lifeguards, Widemouth Bay is one of the best places to learn to surf in Cornwall and the UK!

Robin heads up the surf instructor team at Freewave Surf Academy and has been introducing people to this wonderful sport for nearly 20 years. Having an experienced instructor with you in the water is essential for your safety and for your progression. The surfing lessons take place in small group sizes using great kit. We aim to have everybody up, turning and cruising across the waves in no time.

Surfed before or not at all? No problem, we have you covered!

Don’t just take our word for it, have a look at what others say about their time surfing with us or check out our surfing promotional video on our Surfing Page.

Take part in the daily yoga sessions to help prepare, energise and rejuvenate your body. Surfing is a physically demanding activity and so the yoga sessions are designed to help improve balance, increase flexibility, strengthen core muscles and to restore and revitalise your energy.

Our yoga teachers have a passion for introducing and guiding others through the physical and mental aspects of yoga. They not only understand the need of the body and mind to unwind from the stresses of daily life but they also understand the physical links between yoga and surfing.

Start the day with an energising Vinyasa Flow class to prepare you for your surfing lesson. later sessions will be a slower, more relaxed restorative class that will stretch out those worked arms, shoulders and lower backs from your surfing session.

Beginners not to worry as we will guide you through the basics – expect to see a major change in your flexibility by the end of your stay!

All classes will be tailored to the needs of each individual.

Enjoy a delicious (and well deserved) lunches of local food by the beach which includes:

  • Local cheese
  • Hams
  • Pasties
  • Drinks
  • Salads and Vegetables
  • Breads

What our guests have to say…

I’m still feeling super chilled and grounded after an amazing retreat with Robin and his team last week. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to join the other guests surfing due to a leg injury so while they surfed every morning I relaxed in the beautiful house, read my book in the sunshine, went for walks and recharged my batteries. Total bliss! Read more…

Had the best time at the Freewave Yoga & Surf retreat in Bude; Robin is an excellent surf instructor and Anna (our yoga instructor for the weekend) was amazing too. The Beach House that we stayed in as a group was beautiful, and we had everything we could possibly need for a fun weekend outdoors practicing our surf skills and doing yoga… Read more…
