    Groundswell Scotland’s annual Surf Festival bringing intention and connection into surfing, yoga, music, fitness and well-being through the sea, ceremony and celebration of women and waves.

    We are delighted that this year's Surf Festival will be held at the stunning Sea Cliff beach, near North Berwick.

    This fundraiser will go towards paying forward Surf Therapy courses for women, build community and bring surf community together around this common cause.

    Please buy the correct ticket at the point of sale.
