I asked the same question. no one answered. Talking to some surfer mate's which seems to be a ever growing circle for an absolute beginner they have recommended Woolacombe which is North Devon or about 4 hours drive from London it has lots of surf....Newquay is 6 hours away and has a tendancy to be full of chav's at weekend, busy surf and traffic jams.

Ive seen lessons taking place at Shoreham's Hotpipe on a Thurs eve. Maybe pop down and have a work. Dont have any more info im afraid.

Just get a board and have a go. As long as you can swim you will be ok.

Another good site to check out is based in Brighton

If you call Small Planet which is a surf shop close to the Shoreham pipe, they will do lessons for you. I think they are £25 for a one to one for two hours. Their number is 01273 727237 good luck

None here- got to go to Joisey thru the chunnel, the problem surf is mellow beachbreak, but scenic with Dover-like cliffs.
