We offer advanced coaching for surfers looking to improve speed, flow and technique in moves such as bottom turns, cutbacks, top turns or round houses.

Our senior instructors have more than a decade of surf coaching including a period coaching at national junior surf team level.

Advanced surf coaching is available on the east coast of Scotland in Spring and Autumn and are mobile to seek out good local surf. In the summer we recommend our surf camp adventures on Scotland’s North coast and Islands, Europe’s most consistent summer coastlines.

Customers must be able to consistently catch unbroken waves and do basic turns. Land training and surf drills will be used by our coaches to help progression. Filming and video analysis is an optional extra but great for feedback on the big screen with a nice warm drink in the surf centre.
