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 in our lessons 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.

This is suitable for ages 10+, but prior surfing experience and confidence in the water is a must, as this is an improver/intermediate surf trip.

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!

This is an intermediate/improver trip, so confidence in the water is a must.

We are based at Dunnet Beach. We will confirm the meeting spot around 5 days before the trip depending on the day’s forecast conditions.
