About
Sarah Whiteley's surf school is based on Saunton Beach in North Devon right in between Croyde and Braunton. After years at the top of the competitive surfing game (British and European Champion), Sarah decided to return to her roots and give something back to the sport. Chances are you could get lessons from one of Britain's most successful female surfers.See you at Saunton, Sarah x

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a 90 minute one2one lesson with Jimmy, and it was excellent. Not having surfed for 13 years this was the perfect way to get back on a board. Jimmy gave me really good feedback and encouragement after each wave which accelerated the learning.

Such a great experience. We had a private lesson with Jack and we all came on so much with his patient and encouraging support. Strongly recommend walking on waves to help you progress with your surfing.

Visited earlier in the month with a friend for a group surf lesson. We have had a few in the area but I have to say, hand on heart that the session we experienced with Enrique was certainly Miles above all the rest.
He was patient, fun and extremely knowledgeable in the subject. Not only did he have my friend standing for the first time he also got him mastering jumping and turning which was a huge confidence boost! What I loved was that we also learnt a lot in regards to the waves themselves and what to look out for. I genuinely can't recommend this place enough and will certainly be rebooking...
Only thing to note is there is no changing room, however toilets and shower are directly opposite so no issues for us personally

Another fantastic time with walking on waves! Jack & the team provide a warm & friendly welcome that make you feel like you are a friend/family!
Jack first taught my son to surf, but we still return every year to progress & add a little focus & fun to our stay. Thanks as ever to Jack, Jimmy, Toby & all the team. Personal & expert tuition for everyone regardless of their ability. Saunton is also a wider beach than Croyde, so doesn't feel so crowded even on busier days. We enjoyed some great conditions (note, despite surfline forecasts which were not always as accurate, especially compared to magic seaweed).

We have used Walking on Waves for our School Groups on a number of occasions and they have been absolutely brilliant. We had 4 sessions with Jimmy and Millie over the course of the last weekend and the kids had a fantastic time, were all up and surfing in the first session and progressing to turns and riding along the wave by the end of the final session. All of the children went away with a huge sense of achievement and really pleased with their new-found skills. We can't wait to return later in the year for another weekend. Thank you!

Kids had a great time learning to surf. Toby was patient, encouraging and very friendly and had the kids standing in no time. The weather was a bit flat for a few days, but changing the lessons to a time with better waves was no trouble at all. Would definitely recommend for your surfing lessons. Fantastic time!

The highlight of our family holiday!! We had an amazing time learning to surf with Toby, especially our kids aged 4 & 6! Toby was fantastic - he’s a great teacher, was really engaging & a lot of fun.

Walking on Waves is really organised. They took photos for us too so we have some great action shots & memories.

We already can’t wait to come back and surf next year for “just one more wave”! Thanks guys!

We joined in a surf lesson as part of a group of mixed ability couples. Being complete novices we didn’t have huge expectations, however Mollie and Jimmy were so patient and encouraging giving us tips, that we managed to learn the basics of surfing and put into practice in just one lesson. It was exhausting, but huge fun - thanks both, see you again!
