Gift Voucher: Surfing
We are passionate about the natural world and its beautiful wild places.
We have a deep respect and appreciation for the environment and a love for adventure and silent human-powered sports.
There is nothing quite like the feeling of catching a wave.
Power and speed: It’s addictive and immersive. Our qualified instructors will coach you through the best and safest way to get up and standing.
The joy of surfing is so many things combined, from the physical exertion of it, to the challenge of it, to the mental side of the sport
We have multiple surf locations on our doorstep allowing us to move to where the waves are best on the day. Our beach locations are wild and stunning.
We love this great surfing quote, and it’s true:
“Sliding a wave removes our brains out of the ordinary and slips us into the extraordinary of being there now….
No more worries about mortgages or strife of being poor or rich. When you enter the domain of an ocean cylinder, that moment, those split seconds belong to the Zen part of just being. Period.”
Go where you feel most alive.
Had a fab time stand up paddle boarding in East Lothian with Stevie, Adrian and friends. It was brilliant feeling more confident as the time went on and I felt like it was enough time spent on the water.
Stevie is a great coach! It wasn’t exactly a warm day but I didn’t feel cold, the wetsuit coupled with the exercise did the job at keeping me comfortable.
We went on the lake because the surf wasn’t suitable for beginners today. Being on the lake surrounded by trees and wildlife was just wonderful and I’d love to try this in the sea as well.
Can’t recommend these guys enough!
I went out paddle boarding at the stunning Seacliff beach in East Lothian with Ocean Vertical last week, superb evening on the water, great tuition, the weather cleared up and we were joined by a grey seal and puffins!
Adrian and Stevie are both full of enthusiasm and you all need to give it a try 10/10.
With Ocean Vertical we knew immediately that we were in good hands. Stevie was an excellent and encouraging coach who had us standing, turning and well balanced pretty quickly. Not a wet wetsuit in sight.
Time slowed right down as we paddled down a long lake taking in the stunning views with plenty of encouragement from Adrian. If you are interested to give paddle boarding in East Lothian a try you won’t find better.
Just spent the morning learning to paddle board off Seacliff Beach in East Lothian. I couldn’t recommend the experience more. The chance to try something new, in beautiful surroundings with expert tuition.
Getting up close to wildlife, finding out more about the area from Stevie and learning to cope with different conditions both sea and sky (the haar set in for a wee while). It was a wonderful experience from start to finish.
Five stars. Had a brilliant paddle board session with coach Stevie. The advice helped so much, in particular, the video analysis I would recommend, it made a huge difference to my technique.
I’d highly recommend Ocean Vertical if you want to go paddle boarding in East Lothian. The coach made me feel so positive and able to try harder skills than I thought I could. So patient with me.
Love the knowledge and skills I gained and will be back for sure.
Thanks so much.
Had an awesome time SUP / paddle boarding with the family in East Lothian. Ocean Vertical were great and got us out onto the sea which we had never done before, always felt safe and great instructors! [Thanks Stevie]. And they supplied everything too from boards to wetsuits and equipment. Cant recommend enough, and we saw seals!
Brilliant first stand up paddle boarding – SUP lesson with Ocean Vertical tonight. Stevie’s a great instructor and had me balanced and paddling well in no time. It was a little choppy on the East Lothian coastline so we went to a long calm lake in a beautiful forest. Thanks Ocean Vertical!
Wonderful morning paddle boarding by Dunbar with the Ocean Vertical guys. Felt totally safe and their skill set is second to none. Will definitely be going on another of their outings. Highly recommend!
Great morning paddle boarding with Ocean Vertical. Felt safe, was really informative and learned loads. Would recommend for anyone wanting to get into paddle boarding in East Lothian.
I signed up for SUP with Ocean Vertical. Steve and Adrian took us to the most stunning of Locations at Seacliff beach in East Lothian. With the Bass Rock and Tantallon Castle as the backdrop, dolphins jumping in the distance, a cheeky appearance from a seal and graceful low flying swans.
It’s so peaceful – I had never SUP before but with the excellent coaching and guidance was soon up on my feet enjoying that lovely scenery- wetsuits, boards all provided
I came away feeling both privileged and humbled by this amazing experience… I will definitely be back!
My husband and I had an absolutely brilliant afternoon paddle boarding / SUP. I was very nervous but put completely at ease as the experience went on. I loved that a tutor was with us but not constantly telling us what to do all the time! Beautiful setting at Seacliff Beach in East Lothian too. Highly recommend xx
Had a great afternoon out paddle boarding / SUP today. We were absolute beginners – great instructors, felt really safe and supported. Lovely wee adventure for anyone looking to try something new. Lots of safe, clear instruction but mostly in the water so didn’t spend lots of time on the beach – nearly all if it on the boards out at sea!
Just did the paddle boarding in East Lothian today, couldn’t enjoy it more! Had an early start to make the most of the morning, a bit windy to go to the sea but the guys took us to a loch which was great, all protected by the wood.
Had a good lesson with a good technique approach and lots and lots of fun. Really enjoy it, both of our coaches were brilliant. Thank you guys, looking forward to the next outing!
Huge thanks to Ocean Vertical for a fab day paddle boarding exploring the East Lothian coastline by Seacliff Beach and seal spotting! Great guiding by Stevie. Highly recommend this professional eco tourism company who adapted throughout with excellent COVID-19 measures on place.
Sally was our brilliant SUP instructor on Sunday for our family & friend lesson. She was very professional, patient and enthusiastic and we all learnt a great deal. What an amazing adventure too – beautiful! Would definitely recommend. We’ll be back!
Paddle Boarding Lessons – Well organised, focus on safety and really fun. We did paddle boarding and Sally was our instructor. Recommend this to anyone wanting a couple of hours trying something new in a beautiful coastal location. We will be going back upon our next return to East Lothian! Thank you Ocean Vertical.
Dolphins! We spent this morning out paddle boarding with Ocean Vertical off Seacliff Beach in East Lothian. It was just incredible – once in a lifetime – a pod of around 20 dolphins went right past us about 20 meters away! Just so incredibly privileged to see this. Cant recommend Ocean Vertical enough – the ethical adventure company!
