Life Saving Demonstration every Tuesday throughout the summer at 6:30pm at Crooklets Beach. Bude had the first Surf Life Saving Club in the United Kingdom formed in 1953 - a proud tradition
There is a children's section (the Nippers) and a large adult membership.
The RNLI are very active in Bude and have a fast inshore lifeboat station here. It is celebrated in August each year on Lifeboat Day, which is one of Bude's most exciting and attended events.
