2021 has started with restrictions in place in Scotland and although its looking very positive for a good summer we still envisage a few more up’s and downs so please check these updates. You can read more official updates from Sport Scotland and the Scottish Surfing Federation on other posts in the cv19 section.

12th March The government gave local Non Contact sport the go ahead to start with juniors and adults from the local area. This means sports like golf, tennis and watersports such as surfing where good to start again. Numbers allowances per instructor are not effected for our norms, so 1 to 8 for surfing or paddle boarding from the start with our established CV19 procedures to keep you safe. This means East Lothian adult and junior customers can start from when we open on 1st April. The only exception to this is a special travel allowance for junior sport in ajoining council areas (for us Edinburgh/ Midlothian and Borders) where regular attendance of a regular facility and sport can allow a junior to cross borders. For us this means surf club or development team members or junior customers that attend the surf school regularly.

16th April Domestic travel restrictions are eased to allow friends, family and informal sport to travel borders. Unfortunately we cannot accept bookings from outside East Lothian until the 26th April. However we can surf or paddle independently with friends again!

20th-23rd April – we have scheduled a 4 day break in the surf school operations to schedule the months of May through to October based on how restrictions are being lifted. This will mean a lot more courses and lessons going live by the end of that week. So please check back in to see spaces.

26th April All of Scotland moves to level 3 and Customers outside of East Lothian look very likely to be able to join us (hopefully confirmed Tuesday 20th April by Govt). 26th April should see full Domestic travel restrictions lifted nationally and many other areas of the economy will also re-start. We would also recommend booking in advance, as a lot of people are forward booking to guarantee space so its best to do this and not miss out. If at all worried – please see our cv19 policy on cancellations on a post below this one – as we refund or re-arrange if anyone is effected. We are still awaiting dates for International travel (England or if folk will be able to travel this summer to Scotland from further afield).
