About our Surf Centre

We offer quality coaching with experienced, qualified, local surfers.  Our aim is to ensure your surfing skills progress in a fun and safe environment. We believe we can help you achieve your surfing goals by keeping groups small and providing personal attention to each student. Regular feedback is given to students to ensure progression at all times. We have a range of different boards for you to try, so you can progress

– boards to suit all levels

– all equipment provided

– 8 surf spots within a short driving distance

– male and female surf shop with 10% discount exclusive to Donegal English Language School students.

Our lessons are broken into three categories

Beginners:  This is an introduction course to surfing. We work on the correct techniques to position on the board, paddle, getting through the waves and stand up. At this level our goal is to get you surfing the white water on your own, with a basic knowledge of currents, etiquette and technique.

Intermediate: Students focus on surfing techniques such as effective paddling, wave knowledge and selection, take off and bottom turning, trimming and duck diving. The courses also focus on surfing etiquette. We use video analysis to correct faults when appropriate.

Advanced: Students work mainly on posture correction and technique, timing, positioning, turns and wave selection.


– We recommend that students take their own board on the advanced programme however if this is not possible we have a range of boards from 6’0 to choose from.

– A minimum of 3 students is needed for the advanced programme to run. If there is less than three students, the students will move to the intermediate programme.

Board Selection

For beginners we have a wide selection of soft boards.  For Intermediates we offer a full range of N.S.P’s 6’4 – 8’6 and a range of poxy fun boards from 6 ‘1 – 7 ‘2.


Sunday only.  Groups may be accepted on other days, please contact us for further details
