Surf Steps - Bournemouth Surf School

Bournemouth Surf Steps School


When you stand up for the first time it is the uncontrollable, throw your hands in the air and scream feeling, if only for a few seconds!! So whether you’re 8 or 88, the only way you can really understand what all the fuss is about is to get some gear and get wet!! That’s where we can help. Teaching people to surf and SUP isn’t just a job to us, it’s our passion!”

Surf Steps is situated on Bournemouth beach, 500m West of Boscombe pier, and we’re the only SurfingGB Centre of Excellence based along this stretch of coastline, and the closest to London. All our instructors are Accredited Professional Surf Instructors and Qualified Lifeguards with many years of experience. We offer a selection of different courses to suit all levels and requirements and we pride ourselves on running sessions which are professional, fun, safe and exciting!!

Surf Steps, (Bournemouth Surf School) only sell surf and SUP sessions so we have no retail motivations, we believe it is a privilege to teach surfing. Whatever the weather, (as long as the red flags are not flying!) our main focus is to give students a safe, satisfying, surfing experience. We pride ourselves on our ability to professionally teach the skills of surfing and instill in students a healthy respect and awareness of the beautiful yet powerful Ocean.

People of all ages and backgrounds have discovered that with lessons and practice, they too can experience the thrill of catching a wave; it is also a great way to keep fit and meet new people. Why spend the summer in a stuffy gym when you can go to the beach and still get a good work out!
