Winners of the Rural experinces SHIRES award!!

Within our first year we had the honor of winning the best rural experiences category in the SHIRES award! Finn and I were off traveling around the Philippines when we got the news, thankfully my mum stepped forward to receive the award for us in Inverness.

Is it really cold?

With our thick 5mm wetsuits the answer is no...We have alot of people worried about the cold when surfing in the north sea with us but have a look at some of our previous customers reviews to put your mind at ease-

'I was a little worried it would be too cold in the sea- the weather wasn't too good either- but they have the most amazing thick wetsuits that keep you so cosy I could happily have stay in all day'


TV crew come to Dunnet and film us!

In May 2019 a TV crew from Glasgow came and filmed us giving their presenter a surf lesson! how cool is that:) and check out Dunnets amazing sand junes in the background.
