We ask that you don’t attend a surf lesson/camp if you have Covid 19 or have been a close contact to someone that has/had Covid 19 in the last 5 days. We are following the guidelines as per Gov.ie
How long is a surf lesson?
Please arrive 15 minutes before your lesson. You will complete a short registeration form. We will choose a wetsuit and surfboard for you. We have a huge array of wetsuits so don’t worry about that. We will explain how to put on the wetsuit.
Your lesson will take 2 hours. The first 20 mins or so is spent on the beach with the instructor. He/she will go through safety, your surfboard, leash, popping up, controlling your surfboard, and lots more.
You will then be taken into the water to practice catching waves, popping up and riding the waves to shore. Your instructor is in the water with you at all times and is on hand to answer any questions you may have.
I have booked a surfing lesson, what is provided and what do I need to bring with me?
We provide you with the surfboard and wetsuit for your lesson. Please bring a towel, swimwear to use under your wetsuit and a warm jacket for after surfing.
