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… Especially at night!
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 video on our Surfing Page.
Enjoy an evening yoga session on the beach 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.
Beginners, not to worry, as we will guide you through the basics.
All classes will be tailored to the needs of each individual.
Warm up by the toasty fire and enjoy a well-deserved beach BBQ of delicious local treats, and perhaps something fizzy to wash it down with!
