learn to bodyboard 2

Coast to Coast Surf School has been offering surf and bodyboarding since 2004 and surf skate coaching since 2014. We have experienced staff who have surfed and coached to a high level (two are ex national champions).

Local lessons take place at Belhaven bay, the closest consistently surfed beach to Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Junior surfers can join us from 7 years with no upper age limit! Lessons, Hires and Courses from start April to end October.

Groups please get in touch directly if not enough availability shown on your preferred date.


Coast to Coast don’t offer individual lessons but we offer bodyboarding coaching as part of our junior and adult adventure courses and on our week tours around Scotland.

There are certain conditions that are more ideal for bodyboarding, when the surf is big or we have very high tides and a shore break. We also think it is important to vary crafts to get the most out of wave riding, as in our experience customers that learn to push into a big wave late on a bodyboard or get a few wipe outs in a fun way are way more confident in all forms of wave riding. Our staff will choose when bodyboarding makes sense for safety and fun!

We also offer hires and new bodyboards at the surf centre and the kit is super light, easily transportable and its the cheapest way to get into surf riding too!
