This product is just for phase 2 of lockdown where bookings are restricted to households . June 24th-July 9th.

Coast to Coast offer both level 1 and level 2 surf lessons to households. Super fun surf beginner and improver lessons covering equipment terminology, safety and how to control your board in prone and standing positions. For the slightly more advanced we teach how to turn, catch unbroken waves and trim along them. Lessons are from 7yrs upwards and include a friendly instructor.

All lessons include boards and top of the range wetsuits will keep you warm whatever the weather.

We try to schedule SURF classes with the best tides and when conditions are good and have back up land or flat surf drill options if it goes flat. We also offer alternative sports or options to reschedule or receive a voucher for a future time.

Please note these lessons are currently subject to the following government restrictions

  • Local only bookings from June 24th – July 2nd (you must have an address within 5 miles of Dunbar to book at this phase)
  • Bookings outside local area July 3rd- July 9th (please see normal lessons from 10th July)
