We were off our feet and happy in June and July at Blue Coast; very busy months for our third and fourth in business. Lots of exciting happenings!
As well as local people and visitors from different parts of Scotland and the UK, we've now had customers for our surf lessons and paddleboard lessons & tours from as far as Sweden, Netherlands, Germany, America, and even Australia! We've also had lots of family and friend groups, Cullen Guides, and multiple sessions over two days with Grampian Disability Sport. It's been great to get so many people in the water enjoying the sea and feeling good! All are welcome at Blue Coast.
We're working hard to constantly improve the experience we offer and leave people feeling good after taking part in an activity at Blue Coast - maybe relaxed or calm, focused, exhilarated or energised, tired and happy.
It's been amazing receiving lots of positive feedback and reviews recently which lets us know we're doing something right. We really appreciate people taking the time to share some kind words about their experience; it's really important for people thinking about booking an activity with us.
Grampian Disability Sport
It was great to have the opportunity to provide two half-days of paddleboarding sessions in partnership with Grampian Disability Sport and Moray Council. Some amazing feedback was received from the families involved and we hope to be able to provide similar sessions again in the future.
Yoga and Surf Retreats
Our first yoga retreats were a great success - brilliant days of learning to surf, energising and relaxing yoga classes, and a feel-good dinner. Full write-up here if you'd like to see some of the great photos!
SUP Yoga Classes
We've now run multiple SUP Yoga Classes with Kimberley and are also offering an Intro to SUP Lesson & Yoga Class combined for people who are keen to try yoga on a paddleboard but haven't built confidence yet with standard stand up paddling. These have been a great success and we've been working to improve them each time. All future sessions are currently fully booked but we will shortly announce sessions for September and October on our social media and email list.
Partnership with The Seafield Arms Hotel
Happy to be offering Stay & Play Packages in partnership with The Seafield Arms Hotel. A night away for two in beautiful accommodation combined with a surf or paddleboard experience for two. A great way to relax and enjoy what our beautiful coastline has to offer.
Press & Journal Coverage
We were thrilled to receive some press coverage on the story behind Blue Coast and what we hope to achieve.
Expansion of the Blue Coast fleet
This month we bought the perfect surfmobile - a Ford Ka. A good deal came up that we couldn't pass up and this expands our capabilities for local marketing, running in different locations, and 'surfaris' to different spots for improving surfers. He is called Mr White and he and Betty the Blue Coast Van get along well.
