Surf Theory Lessons
Surf theory lessons are an essential part of becoming a skilled and safe surfer. Understanding wave dynamics, ocean currents, and weather patterns can make all the difference in your ability to catch waves and avoid dangerous situations.
By learning about the science behind surfing, our students gain a deeper appreciation for the ocean and the sport. We also emphasise the importance of proper surf etiquette and safety protocols, which can help prevent accidents and injuries.
Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced surfer, taking surf theory lessons with us will enhance your overall surfing experience and help you reach your full potential.
Beginner surf theory lessons
We gain knowledge usually through experience or conversation with the more experienced. In Scotland, the surf community is still relatively young with the transfer between surfing generations relatively new.
At Coast to Coast, we aim to close the gaps in knowledge and accelerate your understanding surrounding the simple surf experience. The aim is to help you predict the correct days to surf, choose the right locations, surf better on the correct equipment and stay safer in the water!
Beginner classes are open to complete beginners and improvers and run on Wednesday nights from 8-9pm at the surf centre, between May and September.

Yes, we actively encourage this to make your day more memorable. We will have SUP or Surf lessons earlier on most days and we tie in our 1 hour skate classes with the Wednesday evening so you can do a beginner skate and beginner theory class on the same evening or the same at intermediate level.
