We have a range of different boards for you to try, so you can progress

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. Ratio of students to instructor 1:8 max. We use a range of beginner soft boards from 7 foot to 9 foot.

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. Ratio of students to instructor 1:8 max. We use a range of Torq intermediate soft top boards from 5’11 to 7’6.

Advanced: We are happy to accept students at advanced level. Please note that you will receive tuition on a Torq intermediate soft top board. Students work mainly on posture correction and technique, timing, positioning, turns and wave selection. We use video analysis to correct faults when appropriate.

Torelli, Italy

My son Raffaele stayed three weeks in your school from 19th June to 10th July. It was not his first English camp, but it was the best one. He is really fond of everything he did and of the people he stayed with. Accommodation was nice and he loved the coordinator and the stories and the lyrics (the Irish ones) he told them. He loved surfing and the beautiful landscape of your country. He loved even the English school. and all the people he met (coordinators, teachers, instructors, students). I would like to thank you so much because of the organization.
