About Us

A community of women making the city and the sea a great place to be.

We’re are a women's surf club in Bristol, England made up of friendly city surfers who share a love of the sea. Everyone is welcome at Bristol Girls Surf Club, whether you're an absolute beginner or a seasoned pro.

We offer a free community page so that people can always connect with one another, and we also have a paid Sisterhood subscription which comes with lots of additional benefits. Learn more about joining the Sisterhood community below.

Making friends as an adult can be tough so we wanted to create a community where people could meet other like-minded women in their area, build connections and have fun. On our summer surfing day trip, 100% of our survey respondents said they made a new friend that day!

Founded in 2020 by Matilda, BGSC has gone from strength to strength and, after 1.5 years of being managed by a committee of 11 volunteers, has now become a registered Community Interest Company (CIC)! Head to our Board of Directors page to see who we are!
