Our surf and bodyboard lessons and hires all run at Belhaven beach.
We meet in the John Muir car park, middle car park for Belhaven beach, Dunbar. (The closest post code is EH42 1XF for the East Links Family Park which is the car park right next door to this car park).
We run SURF lessons and hires from the John Muir Car Park with classes 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 for lessons to proceed.
We have male and female changing facilities at the beach too!
