Long sandy beaches and a wild rugged coastline just 40 minutes from Edinburgh: East Lothian is a great place to learn and improve your surfing journey.

Surfing lessons just a short drive from Edinburgh.

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.”
