Learn to Surf Your Way

You might not think of yourself as a natural surfer, but we promise you will be better than you could ever imagine at this brilliant sport. As long as you can swim 10 meters and are between the ages of 8 and 80, then we will be able to teach you. And you’ll be standing up by the end of your first lesson! We really do cater for everyone including schools, groups, stags, hens & parties, and always tailor surfing experiences to suit your unique needs.

We offer a choice of lessons and packages. All of our surf lessons in North Devon include tuition, wetsuits and surfboards. Advance booking is advisory to avoid disappointment. A half day surfing experience at Westward Ho! is £30 per person. We do offer discounts for groups and families.

Improve Your Technique With Us

Once you’re standing we guarantee you’ll want to keep learning. Everybody does! We can teach you how to improve and become a better, more competent surfer. And if you want it, we can offer specialist one-to-one coaching to get you ripping!

If there’s no Surf you won’t go home without a thrill! If the surf in unsuitable for surfing or it’s flat (rare at Westward Ho!) you’ll still have a great day with us. We’ll take you coasteering or give you an alternative activity* at the Ultimate Adventure Centre at no extra cost. Ever tried The Ultimate Assault, Awesome 4Some or Ultimate Ops Laser Tag? You will love them! *subject to availability.
