Iain welcomes opening of surf centre

Iain Gray MSP has welcomed the official opening of the Belhaven Surf Centre in Dunbar in a motion laid at the Scottish Parliament.

The new £275,000 Centre, the brainchild of local man Brian Allen, is Scotland’s first community surf facility and will accommodate surf school Coast to Coast and other community groups, including the Wave Project, as well as having two rooms available for community use.

Iain Gray MSP said:

“Surfing has become an increasingly important sport in East Lothian in recent years, especially at Belhaven, one of the best beaches in the country in my view, but it has lacked this kind of facility.

“The Surf Centre is therefore a fantastic addition to Belhaven, and the building looks great and fits in beautifully.”
