What surf lesson is right for me?
SurfABLE Scotland offers a fully inclusive range of surf sessions suitable for all. From mainstream (non-assisted) groups, assisted groups, and 1:1 lessons (for surfers who require a higher ratio of support).
Occasionally, you may see also paddle-board lessons available in place of surfing, where tides, conditions, and locations, are more appropriate for paddle sports.
The choice between assisted and non-assisted lessons takes into consideration many factors including age, water confidence, independence, and any additional support need.
Surfer – Instructor ratio 5:1
This group is suitable for anyone who requires additional support and has the space within our ratios for a parent or carer to join and support their surfer during the lesson. Support from SurfABLE Scotland volunteers where/when available will be prioritised to these sessions.
Surfer – Instructor ratio 8:1
This group is suitable for anyone looking for group surf lessons within a mainstream sport and activity setting.
Our instructor led 1:1 lessons are available only to those who require a higher ratio of assistance at all times, and subject to instructor approval prior to booking.
These lessons are tailored to meet each individual’s needs with a range of enabling surfing styles and adaptive equipment.
