At this level we look at the fundamentals movement skills needed to perform the foundation skills of surfing. We teach you the correct techniques, use fun drills and video analysis to improve your body posture, so you can skate and surf better.

We recommend 4 to 6 lessons spaced out over a season – to cover the level 5 content.

We cover one foundation move per lesson – such as the bottom turn, the snap, or the cut back to roundhouse. We look at the techniques needed to cover successful repetition of the moves forehand and backhand.

Coast to Coast provide a wide range of specialist skateboards and have used this development process to train our top young surfers since 2012 with great success. This course covers Coast to Coast level 5 surf skate programme.

  • 7yrs + for SURF SKATE





We provide high quality SURFSKATE boards and all safety equipment required to keep you safe.


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.
