Frequently Asked Questions

We – and any of our previous customers – would say no! The waters here range from 7-13 degrees celsius, which we admit is chilly! However, we provide super warm winter 5/4mm wetsuits (and boots, gloves & hood if required).


We provide all the wetsuits and surfboards – depending on what you select – so all you need to bring is a towel, warm clothes for getting changed into afterwards and some water! We would also recommend arriving with swimming costumes/trunks on as it makes it easier for getting changed.

The youngest we will take is 4 years old! Our smallest wetsuit size is age 4, so if they are particularly small we might not be able to accommodate this. We highly recommend having a private lesson for small children or have a parent come in the water to assist- we want them to have the best experience possible. You can never be too old to give surfing ago!!

If it’s a bit windy or rainy this won’t affect us however in the event of extreme wind or huge swell we might need to cancel/postpone. Same goes if it happens to be totally flat. However, we will always try and find a back-up location or offer another activity such as stand up paddle boarding. We will provide a full refund if its not possible – this is very unlikely.

Sadly not yet! We have plans to hopefully make it happen soon though. Our seas are super clean & the salt is great for your hair/skin so no need for a shower anyways!

It helps but is not essential – please let us know when you book if you’re not confident. We always keep people in their standing depth where they are comfortable!

Most of our beginner/ improver lessons are based at Dunnet Beach. This long beach has 3 different car parks so the swell and wind will determine which one is best to meet at. Usually, it’s either the main car park next to the Sea Drift Centre or the small middle car park. In the unlikely chance that Dunnet isn’t working we have other back-up beaches.

Absolutely! Please feel free to reach out to the adventuro team on the live chat with any special requests.
