Learn to Surf at Putsborough, North Devon!

Barefoot Surf School is a family run centre based in beautiful North Devon (near the classic surf beaches of Croyde, Woolacombe, Saunton and Putsborough). All lessons are held at Putsborough Sands, the safest and best learner beach in North Devon. Quieter and more spacious than the busy beaches of Croyde and Woolacombe, yet just a mile or two away.

Our commitment has always been to the health and safety of our clients and our instructors. For this reason, due to COVID-19, we will not be offering group sessions for the 2020 Summer season. However, we are pleased to offer both family sessions and private one-to-one and two-to-one lessons.

What We Offer:

North Devon Surfing Lessons - Putsborough, Croyde, Saunton, South West.

Family Surf Lessons

The 90 minute sessions cover the essential safety factors and take you carefully, step by step, through the skills, building confidence, and showing you how to enjoy the waves. Culminating in smooth ‘pop-ups’ - getting you to your feet, using a technique developed to suit you, and riding the wave in… standing!
