Discovery Surf School is all about safe surfing tuition in small groups, so if you find the whole prospect of getting in the sea and trying your hand on a board a bit daunting you’ll have the reassurance that there will only be a few of you. There are never more than six of you with one instructor, and we should mention that Coast magazine dubbed Discovery Surf School “one of the best surf schools in the UK”.
Fittingly based in a surf shop at Bigbury-on-Sea, Discovery Surf School is run by one of Britain’s best surfers Martin Connolly and he’s also an experienced lifeguard so expect professional, safe tuition. Martin also released best selling surfing DVDs ‘110% Surfing Techniques’, which have helped people around the world polish their surfing skills.
There’s more good news, Discovery Surf School is found in the same building as the award-winning Venus cafe, and it’s just the place for a post-surf meal made with local ingredients and organic produce. Well since you’re learning to surf you may as well embrace the Devon way of life properly...you’ll also find gluten-free and vegetarian options of the Venus Cafe menu.
