All our lessons run from the new Belhaven surf centre built in 2019 and located next to the shore road car park for Belhaven beach, Dunbar.
We run lessons and hires starting at 10.30am, 1.30pm, 4.30pm and 7pm depending on conditions and time of year. All lessons and hires are booked in advance and we will notify in advance if surf is too small or too wild or winds too strong for lessons to proceed.
We have male and female under floor heated changing facilities, toilets and showers too! Payment is either online in advance, voucher or by cash on the day.
