The Budewaveriders Club is a hub for the surfing community of Bude and North Cornwall. It all began when two local parents started to wonder why they were taking their budding offspring to Croyde for surf comps when Bude has some of the best waves in the UK - it was bonkers!
Today, the Bude Waveriders is Britain’s largest surf club. Members, of all ages, are invited to get together, all for the love of surf. The club provides brilliant coaching, helping to improve style, increase confidence and nurture surf champs. They held their first inter-club comp in June 2013 and it was a rip-roaring success.
The club is kept afloat by donations. The Bude Waveriders will use their Tommy’s Heroes donation to fund lifeguard training for willing volunteers, to buy safety equipment and to support some of the younger members who can struggle to pay the entrance fees when competing in the pro junior circuit.
“We pride ourselves on taking new members of all ages and abilities and giving them a safe, fun and friendly environment while creating a chance to meet new people with the same passion...SURFING!!!”
Support Bude Waveriders
Tommy’s Heroes is our way of giving the local community a well-deserved helping hand. It's based on tokens: for each token issued and deposited into our special collection boxes, we'll donate £1 to the relevant 'Tommy’s Hero'.
We’ll give you a token when you eat at Sea Jacks Restaurant (one per table) and when you kip in our snooze pads for one night or more, and choose to reuse your towels (one per night). Simply pop your token in the collection box by reception, and we’ll donate £1 to help keep the Bude Waveriders riding waves (try saying that fast!)
Nominate Your Hero...
We will select three special causes each quarter; they may be registered charities or special individuals/groups who are doing really brilliant things. There's only one rule: they must be based in Bude or the surrounding area.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or message us via Facebook to nominate your favourite cause. Please include a link to their website or Facebook page, and explain why you think they deserve to be one of Tommy’s Heroes. We will contact you to confirm that we have received your nomination, and may ask for further information.
