With surfing now an Olympic sport which is rapidly growing and Scotland’s first inland surfing destination in the pipeline, there has never been a more exciting time to be involved in Scottish surfing.

The SSF develops surfing in Scotland from grassroots participation all the way up to World Championship level.
