Surf Schools in Scotland 0

It may be a long journey north, but if you’re willing to make the effort you’ll undoubtedly be greeted by some stunning, unspoilt countryside and awesome waves in Scotland. The far North has long been known in the surfing community as a mecca for long, fast, powerful reef breaks, but in the last few years Scotland has hit centre stage in the new movement of Coldwater Surfing.

Make no mistake, Scotland is a lot colder than the relatively balmy conditions of Devon and Cornwall, but recent developments in wetsuit technology have made it’s perfect (often world class) waves more accessible.

Surfing in Scotland

The east coast has plenty of quality beach breaks stretching from the border, right up to John O’Groats. The western atlantic facing coast also gets quality surf from the north atlantic. But the real jewel in Scotland’s crown is the North Coast.

The breaks around Thurso, Pease Bay and Fraserburgh are probably best left to experienced surfers. Beginners should head for the more forgiving beach breaks such as Aberdeen and Dunbar (Belhaven Bay) where you’ll find a few surf schools offering surfing lessons to the more hardy among us.

If you fancy getting away from it all and surfing some unspoilt, empty waves, head for the islands. Surf schools can be found in far reaching spots such as Hebrides and the Western Islands.
