Surf South West run surfing lessons, surf courses and surf holidays at Croyde Bay in North Devon. Mission Learn, Improve, Excel Company Overview In 1996 Darren Burrett, an established British Surfing Association instructor with many years surfing and coaching experience, fulfilled his lifelong ambition to run his own north devon surf school. From these small beginnings, Surf South West is now internationally recognised as a provider of surfing lessons in Devon and surf holidays in Europe, Costa Rica and Africa. We were the first surf school to be awarded level 4 status by the British Surfing Association. This is the highest level attainable, and is awarded in recognition that Surf South West has the highest standards of surf coaching. We have achieved 'Approved Surf School' status for all our years in existence and all our instructors are also qualified beach lifeguards.
