We offer lessons & tuition to individuals, families, groups, birthday parties, Stag & Hen do's, corporate team building activities. Gift vouchers also available.

Surfing is one of the world's most popular sports, because it is fun, exhilarating but also challenging! Whether you are a beginner looking to stand up on a wave, an intermediate looking to surf a green wave, or an aspiring tube-rider, Suds Surf school will be able to choose the correct conditions, provide ideal equipment and offer professional tuition in a relaxed and fun manner to help you achieve your goals.

Safety is always a priority so we carefully choose the location of your lessons according to conditions and the ability of the group. Lessons include coaching on water safety, including rip currents and surf etiquette. The instructor is in the water with you at all times to offer continuous advice and coaching.

Lessons are offered to all ages - we don't believe anyone is too young or old to try surfing! If younger than 8 years old, a parent will be given a wetsuit and must assist the child in the water or a 1:1 lesson can be arranged. Participants must be able to swim unaided. Lessons are 2 hours, unless stated otherwise.

  • Really good lesson with Suds at Sandend. Thanks for your patience, I'm delighted to be standing up (sometimes) after only 1 session.

    Will take the whole family next time.

  • Surfing lesson at sandend

    Booked a lesson with suds surf school for my son aged 15 during the Easter break whilst staying in Hopeman. Arranged to meet Mark on the beautiful Sandend beach who was already setting up when we arrived. Our son was kitted out with full wet suit gear, boots,gloves and hat and set off for a 2 hr lesson which turned into almost 3 hours because they were having so much fun. The tuition was great and Mark could not have been kinder to our son during the lesson. We enjoyed walking the beach and watching the action happen. Suds surf school cannot be recommended highly enough.

  • FANTASTIC!! Great fun with expert knowledge, very friendly guys.

    I had a great lesson with this surf school, considering I'm forty, unfit and have far to much wobble for a wetsuit it was fantastic. The beach is stunning and I couldn't believe how warm the wetsuits kept you and the water isn't as cold as you would expect from the north of Scotland. There're no expectations from the guys for you to be a champion surfer within your 2 hours however they're always shouting encouragement to you when you catch a wave or manage to stand up!!

  • Brilliant afternoon had by all.

    Yesterday our children (8 and 11) had their first experience of surfing with Suds Surf School. It was an excellent experience from putting on their wetsuits and shoes, all provided, to catching their first wave. They were on the sea in the beautiful Sandend beach for nearly 3 hours and had s fantastic time. The instructions were clear and the instructor was totally in control and motivating throughout the lesson. I would totally recommend this!
