“My experience was great, at the start of the week the conditions weren’t ideal but the instructors, who i think had a tremendous blend of skill, experience and ability didn’t bemoan the conditions but instead had us working on technique, with drills that didn’t require perfect conditions; and that was exactly what i was after – something to help me move on from my surfing plateau.” Alistair
IMPROVER SURF SKILL BUILDER
Skill building lessons for improver’s looking to progress their skills. Lessons can cover positioning in the water, paddle out and catching wave techniques, trimming, speed control and cut backs and are tailored to the groups skill base and surf conditions.
Lessons are open to surfers that can stand consistently with control in white water and have started to experiment with unbroken wave riding.
“Thanks for providing Hannah and I with some excellent tuition to help us improve our surfing. I don’t think that we are quite up there with Kelly Slater yet but we have certainly learned so much – we just need to put it into practice now!!!” Doug, Edinburgh
INTERMEDIATE SKILL BUILDER
We offer coaching for intermediate and advanced surfers. Local lessons are tailored to you as an individual, limited to 2-4 surfers per session and are mobile. This is a two hour water lesson (but please allow 3-4 hours with mobile locations and feedback) with an experienced coach. The lesson will be made up of a variety of back to back drills specific to your ability, filming (if appropriate) and feedback on the beach.
Lessons are open to surfers that can catch unbroken waves consistently with an element of control. We also welcome surfers who can preform basic fundamental moves too on waves such as cutbacks/ top turns and speed generation but want feedback on their technique . We also have a range of boards that can be used to match your ability included in the price.
Local lessons are generally off season April and October as the waves are more consistent locally and with one of our senior instructors. For more advanced we also offer tours on the west coast islands please see “Scottish island tours”
