Our location for learning to surf in Scarborough takes some beating.

It is also recognised as one of the safest beaches in the area, being lifeguarded May-September by RNLI beach lifeguards. We are the closest surf school to the beach for surf lessons all year round, and also we are the biggest surf school in the area to have a base right on the beach offering you secure storage, changing facilities and Hot showers.

What a fantastic shop and 1st surfing experience! My 10 year old daughter decides she wants to go surfing on one of the coldest days in the year; I was a little aprehensive but needn't have worried. The team here are real pros. and very friendly. The instructor Andy was outstanding. Experienced, proffesional and wonderfully kid friendly. Lofty, who supervised the kids in the water was equally superb. What a wonderful experience thay gave my daughter and husband, thank you. Lesson was fun for all including the adults, yet informative with sfaety paramont. All kit supplied, which was high quality and all brand new for the 2014 season. Daughter said she wasn't a bit cold, unbelievable but true and that it was the best day she had ever had! Husband had a fantastic time, they are both hooked and can't wait to return.
100% reccommend. If you think you can't do it, yes you can! They were both standing up before the end of the lesson.

Superb value for money. Will definitely be returning as soon as possible.

Booked the all-day surfing activity which consists of breakfast, surf lesson in the morning, use of the surf boards (& other equipment) in the afternoon & an evening meal & drink in the restaurant next door. For £60 it is amazing value & considering we were the first stag do they had ever done, they really looked after us.

The staff are really laid back & friendly & I'd have no hesitation in recommending them if you were looking for an activity in Scarborough.

Can highly recommend - booked my two teenage sons in for first surf lesson - other members & staff really friendly and made us all feel welcome - facilities are great - brand new wetsuits - was an evening lesson in April but kept them warm - instructor was brilliant and my younger son was standing up by the end! Will definitely be back - also bar that does food next door for parents or apres-surf drinks.
