Bristol Surf Club is a social club run by surfers for surfers.
The club was started in 2004 to help Bristol local surfers to communicate and share the cost of travelling to the beach.
We are an eclectic bunch of surfers ranging from complete novices to wannabe pros…..but mainly the former!
We also organise regular surfing events including trips to beaches in Devon, Cornwall and West Wales, surf lessons & video coaching for all abilities, competitions and other social events.
We meet every Thursday from about 8pm at the Pumphouse in Hotwells. This is a really informal, laid back gathering and anyone over the age of 18 is welcome. If you’re interested in joining then feel free to come along and say hello.
Membership is £5.00 for the year which pays for our basic running costs and also will give you access to the Facebook group where our members communicate regularly.
Feel free to explore this site and drop us a line if you want to join us.

Bristol Surf Club’s insurance offers club members Public Liability protection of up to £5,000,000 for bodily injury to third parties and damage to property or premises resulting from accidents that occur during official BSC events (organised by/supported by the managing committee). These include surfing trips (cover for when you’re surfing and for any damage to premises hired by BSC e.g. campsite/hostel); the annual BBQ; sponsored swim and Christmas party etc. Members are NOT covered whilst on self-organised trips. If you would like to be covered for surfing whilst not on an official BSC trip you should obtain your own personal insurance policy.
If you're looking into getting personal insurance cover, one option would be to become a member of Surfing GB. You'd receive worldwide liability insurance covering you whilst you are surfing up to £5,000,000 among other benefits such as access to a range of discounts from partner stores and organisations. The annual cost of SGB membership cost is £20, and if you select Bristol Surf Club from the drop down menu when signing up online £5 of this will go towards the charity of BSC’s choice.
