Surfing Lessons In Bournemouth

Experience the thrill of standing up, the challenge of staying up, and the rush of riding a wave as you learn to surf in Bournemouth with BSA Instructors!

Price for 1 participant

Surfing lessons in Bournemouth offer a fantastic taste of the sport that is not just a pass-time, but a lifestyle, for people all over the world. This is a 2-3 hour introduction to one of the most beautiful, pure and exhilarating extreme sports there is - no motors, tracks, lifts, harnesses, no bells & whistles - just you, your board, and the water.

Would-be surfers will receive superb tuition from BSA accredited instructors, and should ideally get from sand to stand during the course of the lesson. There are very few feelings that can rival the rush of riding your first wave - except perhaps every other wave you catch and ride after it!

You'll be welcomed by your instructor when you arrive at the surf school, and will begin your lesson with a full briefing on all things surfing - this includes beach awareness, water safety, and an introduction to surfing and the techniques you will be using during the lesson. After being fitted for your wetsuit and board, you'll hit the beach to put theory into practice. With your surfboard securely on the sand, you will practise paddling, popping-up and how to control your board, before heading into the water.

The remainder of the 3 hour lesson will be spent trying to stand - and stay standing! - as you feel the buzz, the sense of freedom that comes with catching and riding waves. At the end of the session you'll most likely be feeling pretty tired, so after you head back to the centre to change and warm up, we recommend that you recuperate over a hearty meal and a hot drink!


The minimum age for Bournemouth surfing lessons is 8 years old, and there's no maximum - it's never too late to learn!

It's important that you are comfortable in open water, and able to swim 50 metres. This is quite a physically demanding sport, so a reasonable level of fitness is required.

Not suitable for pregnant women.

This experience can take between 2-3 hours. Please arrive 15 minutes before your lesson is due to begin, and allow time for drying off afterwards!

Spectators are always very welcome to watch the surfing lessons. If your family/friends get a little hungry during the lesson, there are many places by the beach where they can sit and have a bite to eat or a hot drink.

April through to October is best for novice surfers, however surfing lessons can be taken all year round.

Bring a swimming costume, a towel, and some nice warm clothes to change into after your lesson (it may be sunny, but it is still England!)
All other equipment is provided at the centre.

Certain extreme weather conditions may affect your surfing lesson (also if the lifeguard 'red-flags' the beach), however these are rare. If you are in any doubt, or just wish to double check, please call the surf school on the day before your booking.
