"Just back last Saturday from a wonderful experience on a family tour holiday. Would highly recommend it for all levels, even if you haven't been in the water for years! Adam and Josh are really encouraging and so experienced. Short theory intros were extremely informative and in the space of five days you learn to look at the sea in a safer way, with the potential for more future family fun."

We will update you on exact locations once booking in. For North coast surf camps we react to the surf forecast that week so locations will be picked to give you the best waves that week.

We can arrange free transport if needed from the closest Ferry (west coast) or Train/ Bus Station (North coast). Customers can also car share.

Our staff all have lifesaving or beach lifeguard qualifications, are disclosure checked, and have an ASI or ISA level 1, 2 or 3 instructor qualification.

CONDITIONS

South East Scotland is one of the UK's best locations to learn to surf with perfect, small beginner waves in Scotland's sunniest location.  Belhaven Beach is one of the best beginner friendly beaches in Scotland.

In the event of no waves, you will be contacted in advance and offered an alternative sport suitable to the weather conditions, such as stand up paddle, coasteering, surf skate or a beginner zero surf class.  Our range of sports means that we can offer an activity in all but the most extreme weather conditions.
