Welcome to our new Community Surf Centre!

Belhaven Surf Centre is an exciting new building based in Dunbar! Its been designed to serve the needs of those who enjoy surf and adventure activities together with the community at large. It will become home for a number of organisations improving surf safety, access to all for surf and coastal watersports, sports performance and environmental education. There are several rooms which can be booked out by groups or members of the public. These will be a multi-purpose education room, a meeting room and underfloor heated changing facilities, all available to book and hot showers for those who want to immerse themselves in all that our beautiful coastline has to offer.



We will be closing the centre to the public from the 18th March 2020 to the 1st May 2020, possibly longer subject to Government advice on the CV-19 outbreak in the UK.

We wish all our customers and organisations that use our building a safe period of time and hope that when things are better we can make a difference helping people recover, get active and enjoy nature again!


After an amazing successful launch in September 2019 our two tenants, Coast to coast surf school and the wave project have settled into their offices. We also have multiple groups using the board and education rooms in the first three month for their organisations to offer environmental education, safety education, surfing, yoga and meditation including East Lothian Countryside Rangers, Dunbar Surf Lifesaving, Active Schools East Lothian, Groundswell, Surfers Against Sewage, Patagonia and Kosa Yoga.

Please check out our events page which has 2020 events and will be updated quarterly through the year. If you also want to check out whats happening in more real time with groups advertising courses or events check out our facebook page or in person – we will have notice boards on the building by March 2020 highlighting new courses, talks, presentation and events.

We are also launching a new surf club called the Belhaven Surf Club in April 2020. Contact www.c2csurfschool.com for more details. We took a hand picked team from Belhaven north to Fraserburgh in November 2019 for Gathering of the Clans, Scotland’s club team competition and our experimental club team finished 2nd of 10 teams so hopefully with the new club set up we can bring the trophy home to the south east soon.

The Lowland Longboard Surf Competition was also great success in October 2019 (photos below)

The centre slows down now with Christmas holidays, January and February, Coast to Coast and the Wave Project are closed for the winter and all new centre bookings will start in March.

However there are various classes including yoga classes at different times during the day during these months. If you are interested in joining any of these classes please contact info@belhavensurfcentre.org and we can put you in touch with the class organisers. Full operation will start again in March and be 7 days a week by April!
