I haven't managed to find any, am trying to learn too, I've been going down to St. Andrews, and just having a go... It's quite easy to catch the waves, just nails to stand up!!!

id like to surf too, and come from south lanarkshire. though i go to uni in edinburgh. theres some surf shops there which offer lessons but i imagine theyll be pretty pricey so havent asked yet.
im not a strong swimmer and i dont know if that'll be a problem learning to surf. :-(

surf can be very good but also a mission as its cold and rubbish most of the time.  there is a good lively surf club in Bannf with regular novice waves and occasionaly good waves.  try the north coast for a taster.
