Iona is the current ladies Scottish Champion and Finn is a previous Under 18s champion- learn to surf with our experienced, fully ISA trained coaches that totally love being in the ocean! Iona has grown up on the North Coast and can't wait to share her favourite place in the world with you. Finn grew up on a wee island called Tiree. Always living by the sea has made him a very passionate surfer and coach. Both have previously worked at Blackhouse Watersports on Tiree and Aotearoa surf in New Zealand
Situated in the Scottish Highlands in Caithness is Dunnet beach, the main beach we run lessons from. It's a long sandy bay that picks up all the north sea swells. It's the perfect place to learn or improve how to surf with the long peeling waves this beach can offer. Come down and spend the day on at this amazing spot!
This beach is situated just around the corner from Thurso, which is a town known for world class waves!!

"It’s impossible, talking to Iona and Finn, not to pick up some of their enthusiasm for surfing, and for surfing in Scotland. They have both travelled and surfed widely as part of the Scottish junior surf team, and worked together as surf instructors in the Western Isles and New Zealand, but when it came to setting up their own school, it was obvious where it should be."
