Wonderful experience! Ollie was really helpful and patient, and made the whole experience extremely enjoyable. Wetsuits were provided and kept us very warm for the two hour lesson. Could not recommend them enough and will definitely be back! 😊
We had an amazing surf lesson with Ollie! He was great fun and was so patient. We had a few lessons elsewhere in the past but felt like we really progressed with Ollie- he showed us what we had to work on and explained things clearly. Can’t recommend Lahinch surf centre enough and can’t wait to come back already! 🏄🏼♀️
My sister and myself had a lesson with Ollie Welsh and would highly recommend it was so much fun and it's the most I've achieved in a surf lesson. Not only does he have great tips to get standing up but also everything else like controlling your board and reading the waves ( while having the Craic) would recommend a week if you have the time 🙌
In Ireland for our first time and could not have been treated better than we were at Lahinch Surf. Ollie was so instrumental in making my dream come true of surfing in the land of my father. He set me up and gave me great info on the break and how it was working that day. I had a Blast thanks to him. Definitely will be back on our next visit. Cheers
Highly recommend the summer surf camp. All equipment supplied and instructors where very good.
Clara 8 was standing after first lesson the confidence and fun was amazing to see. Value for money. And the hot showers after are great bonus.
See you all again soon.
