School Surf Trip

We have been looking after surfing school tours in Lahinch for almost 20  years.
Our expert instructors have your safety and comfort in mind the whole time.
Surf lessons are carried out in waist depth water where the waves are smaller and safer. Lahinch beach is very safe with consistent, good white water waves that are easy to ride for kids and adults.All instructors are fully Garda vetted and qualified by the Irish Surfing Association to teach Surfing, as well as that we all hold up-to-date beach lifeguard certs.Kids and teens love our surf lessons and will benefit from a new awareness and respect for the ocean as they will learn about tides, currents, beach positioning, and all aspects of beach safety.
There is also coach parking and we are just 30 minutes from the motorway in Ennis.
