Coast to Coast offer high quality equipment for hire, with a full range of wetsuits, surfboards, bodyboards, SUPs and skateboards. All suitable for the time of year and conditions. If you don't see any availability at the time you want to join us please email (particularly paddle boards) as we can see what we can do.


  • Hirers must be able to swim at least 50m
  • Surf Hires will be required to demonstrate they understand the basics of how RIPs work, how to safely navigate the white water and breaking zone (if more advanced) and show an understanding of the surfers code of conduct and Wave Etiquette.
  • Stand up Paddle hirers must take communication when hiring and understand self rescue techniques. SUP hirers must understand  RIPS, wind effect and etiquette with other sea craft.
  • Surf Hires will take place at Belhaven Beach. SUP hires will be on the Dunbar coastline. You must have a senior instructor written permission to use any other area (risk assessed by our staff).
  • Under 16’s must have adult supervision. In bigger seas a condition of surf hire will be to surf alongside lesson flags.
  • Customers must ensure prior to hiring that they are not suffering from alcohol or drug abuse or any medical condition that would make it dangerous to participate.
  • All hirers will be responsible for their own well being and equipment.

We reserve the right to refuse hire to any customer if we consider any of the above conditions are likely not to be met or we consider surf or weather conditions to be unsafe – our senior instructors will have final decision. We observe the Surf Hire Safety guidelines created by the RNLI.

PLEASE CHECK THE LATEST FORECAST BEFORE BOOKING – FORECASTS CAN CHANGE (EVEN OVERNIGHT) – light winds and low swell great for SUP, surf 1-3ft good for beginners, 2-4ft Improvers, 2-6ft more advanced –  latest forecast.
