Fundamental to any surf on an unbroken wave is the ability to undertand how to generate speed and stay close to the power of the wave. The improver surf skate lesson replicates the basic body dynamic skills needed for speed control and the correct technique when doing basic turns.

We recommend 2-3 lessons to cover the level 3 and 4 content.

Coast to Coast have a wide range of specialist skateboards that offer the perfect way to develop your surf skills on land. These lessons cover aspects of the Coast to Coast Level 3 and 4 Surf Skate programme and are open to all ages from 7yrs upwards

These lessons are one hour lessons, with all safety equipment and skateboards.

On the East coast of Scotland the surf can be inconsistent and combining land training with surfing  means consistent improvement through the summer.

We meet at the Belhaven Surf Centre, a wonderful brand new facility on the beach. Surf skate lessons take place at other locations around Dunbar. This can be a short walk, skate or small drive away with locations picked on time of day/ year, weather, size of group and ability.

The surf centre has underfloor heated changing rooms next to the south side of Belhaven Beach.


All equipment is provided but please bring trainers or skate shoes (similar to Vans/ Converse/ Etnies or similar), a drink and sun protection.

If you require medication such as inhalers, insulin etc, please ensure that you notify instructors so it can be taken in our safety bag to the skate locations.


Standard lessons have a max ratio of 1 instructor to 8 pupils and are often supplemented with an extra assistant.

Our staff all have lifesaving qualifications, are disclosure checked, and have an ASI or ISA level 1, 2 or 3 surf instructor qualification and the knowledge to apply good surf technique to the surf skate lessons.


South East Scotland is one of the UK's best locations to learn to surf skate and develop your skills, as its one of Scotland's sunniest locations.

In the event of rain, we can offer re-scheduling or alternative sports on the same day but please note alternative classes are longer -2 hours long (surf/ coasteer/Sup) but are more expensive as a result.
