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, where our reputation for patience and professionalism has been supported by online satisfaction surveys that have given us 5 star ratings for many years.
All our instructors are BSA qualified, carry Surf Life Saving Association surfing coach or Beach Lifeguard awards and are full members of Sports Coach UK, the national federation of sports coaches.
Specialising in beginners, Barefoot put enormous emphasis on every learner having a great experience picking up the techniques of this exhilarating sport. Under the leadership of owner and head coach Nigel Brown, every session is tailored to individual needs.
Our approach enables even those with low confidence the environment to reach their potential. Suitable for all ages from 8 to 80. Our commitment to the highest levels of safety has been held up as an example of good practice in the industry; Every group has a water’s edge ‘spotter’ – The only school in Europe, that we know of who do! We are also the only school in the UK using two way radios to keep our spotter in contact with the instructor at all times.
