Why Join Us?
By choosing Bournemouth University you've moved to the sunny south coast, where the sea is at your doorstep... Our club is a community of sea enthusiasts that surf at the break of dawn, into the late afternoon and throughout the year! We travel, we seek adventure, we get stoked and we do that with amazing friends.
AND NO SURF EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED, WE WILL TEACH YOU!!
BU Surf Club has a home at Bournemouth & Boscombe pier. We surf the breaks, we party on the shore and we get the best of coastal living. We offer beginner surf lessons with our team of BU surf instructors and whenever there is swell we are there! We also host mega events, socials and those much-needed wind down sessions, so there’s the right vibe for all of our members.

Every level is welcome in Bournemouth Surf Club, and we always have a big space for begginers and newbies who want to try or leant the sport.
We have certified Surf instructors that will organize lessons and surf sessions localy everytime there are waves in the area. These lessons are 2 hours long and 6 students max per lesson. We provide wetsuit and board for those who dont have their own so that all you have to worry about is having fun. We often take pictures and videos during this, so you could have a pic of your first wave!
Note Taster sessions are free of cost for members and year round lessons are 12x1 and 50x5 pounds to cover equipment, petrol and instructor costs.
Bournemouth Surf Club has a variety of begginer and intemediate boards that can be used by our members. These go from 6.7 to 8.6 and can be rented out by contacting committee. We also have 5/4 wetsuits, 3mm gloves, 5 mm boots and hoods to be used.
please note renting these out have an extra fee of 5 pounds per board and day and 2 per wetsuit and day. This is entierly to cover the expenses of repairs the boards may need and to cover storage as equipment can not be storaged in the SUBU building.
We run weekly socials so that our members can socialize and meet mind-like students that share the same passion and love for the outdoors and ocean. Some of our main ones....
