HOW WE STARTED
Coast to Coast Surf school was formed in 2004, as a mobile surf school with a simple aim to teach “the art of surf riding on the best beginner beaches”.
As a family run business we have grown organically with a philosophy where staff and customers are central – producing the best lessons and courses possible for our customers in a friendly, safe and informative way.
We provide top quality equipment that provides warmth in the water and performance in the wave.
We have grown each year since, and now employ experienced instructors in all our sports and operate on all three coastlines in Scotland annually. You can meet our team HERE.
HOW WE PROGRESS
Our junior development programme has produced multiple Scottish team members and a few national champions.
Our staff also had a great success. Clover is a European championship junior body board semi finalist 2018. Josh is a senior finalist in 2017 (the first ever Scottish surfer to make a final). Sam was also Scottish junior team coach in Morrocco European Championships 2016, with Scotland finishing 9th their best result to date.
Community and the environment are central to our vision for the next decade. We created a new surf club for local kids called Belhaven Surf Club. We’ve done our first carbon footprint audit and put in place strategies to work towards net zero.
We host two community events a year – the Coast to Coast Lowland longboard surf champs, normally in the autumn ,which is a fun laid back surf event celebrating skill on the longer boards. We also host the Surf Sprints, a flat water surf safety community event normally in June based on lifeguard and flat water fitness paddle and swim skills. This has primarily been aimed at local teams/clubs – offering a fun event to develop water confidence and skills in the sea!
