For mobile tours it depends on location but we normally travel the evening before and travel on the 4th day back ( so 7 surf sessions and 5 days including travel).

Customer Testimonials

We’re always absolutely delighted with the feedback we receive from our wonderful customers! The fact that we have people coming back on our surf camps time and time again, is a real testament to what we set out to achieve with our Scottish surf camps. Exceptional surf instruction, incredible places & likeminded, amazing people.

Scottish Surf Camp

We had such an amazing week! I feel like I made loads of progress with my surfing thanks to the awesome coast to coast team on the tour.

They were full of enthusiasm, expertise, and good craic. The group were great and even though we were mixed level the tuition was really tailored to each individual. For me ‘look along the wave’ has finally clicked! Everyone felt they’d reached some, if not all, of the goals we set out at the beginning of the week.

The campsite was awesome and the addition of the bell tent was a great idea – it’s perfect for chilling out, yoga sessions, socialising and sharing surf chat! Honestly, can’t say enough to thank the instructors on the trip. I hadn’t met any of them properly before the trip so wasn’t sure what to expect but they each brought their own versions of fun and so much knowledge and were great to be around and learn from, both in and out of the waves.

The tour was brilliant, I had a great time and would thoroughly recommend to anyone! The teaching, organisation and waves were all top notch!

Scottish Surf News

In short, the experience has been wonderful. Callum, Jake and Mike are exceptional instructors. They consistently showed themselves to be highly skilled, possessed of boundless knowledge and experience, were highly adaptable and imbued with enthusiasm.

The Islands bewitched and captivated and the weather was definitely a bonus, but these guys were the engine and nexus of the tours. Their focus was always on the customer, always ensuring that we had the best possible time. This was reinforced by a concern for safety and an impressive knowledge of all things surfing and the sea. Moreover they were always happy to answer questions and give help at all times.

This Surf Tour was my 5th Coast to Coast surf tour and it was fantastic! One of the best if not the best of all surf tours I have done. I learned a lot and the place was incredible. The instructors did a great job finding the right waves for the group, they had loads of knowledge to share and did it really well.

At the end of the tour I was catching loads more waves. I was given excellent tips in the first sessions and I had great conditions to put it all in practice. The photos and videos also helped a lot! Mike gave us feedback while filming and the video analysis was very helpful!

Once again, a great bunch of people. I don't know how you do it but both your employees and customers are awesome human beings and the energy in all tours is great! And we surfed with dolphins at sunset!! Priceless!! Thank you so much! See you guys in the next tour!!
