Weekend Surf Course
Our "Weekend Surf Course" is our most popular surf course. We have a lot of happy customers who have had a great weekend of surf. Apart from the surfing, the best part of this course is our surf coaches. They emphasize making it as fun as possible while giving you great tips to make it easier for you to master surfing. The course is for absolute beginners starting from scratch and also for the "Pro's" who have surfed multiple times before but need some coaching.
Two Surf Sessions with coaching on Saturday and one Sunday morning, you'll be surf-satisfied and carving by the time you leave lahinch on Sunday afternoon.
We want you to enjoy surfing, to have positive experiences and progressively learn skills that will help you love surfing as much as we do. What we try to do is fit as much water time into one weekend. We usually do a lesson on Saturday morning and again after lunch (depending on the tide times). By the time you take Sunday's lesson you are literally riding on the crest of a wave as you wave to your friends on the beach!

Kids & Teen Summer Surf Camps
In 2002 John introduced the now infamous “Lahinch Surf School 5 Day Surf-Camp” , the first of it's kind in the west of Ireland. Years later we are still perfecting and adapting the camp to make it safer, more exciting and more fun in the art of surfing. We'll never know how many great surfers have emerged from the camps.
AGES: KIDS SURF CAMP is for Age 9 to 12. TEEN SURF CAMP Ages 13 to 17. We also run a very special GROM SURF CAMP for Ages 5 to 8 (group size is smaller)!

Mid Week
Lahinch is usually busy at weekends, so surfing midweek can a bit of a treat. Quiet, more personal and laid back! In summer time you will be able to chose from a few different times mid week. In off-season months in the case there is no one else booked in you still have options. You can provisionally book that date to see if anyone else books in. If no body does your lesson then becomes a off-peak private lesson (which is obviously more expensive) so you have the option to try another date or do the private lesson. Usually in off-season (Oct-March) we'll have a few days a week where people are surfing mid-week. Checck our Upcoming Events page to see if we have anything on on certain dates.

-> contact us to enquire for prices and availability on certain dates!


SURF MATERIALS



What equipment is provided?
Winter & Summer wetsuits, surfboards (variety of 1 fin and 3 fin) and in colder months boots, glooves and hoods (and of course expert tuition).

What do I need to bring?

In warmer months all you need bring is a towel, a swim suit and a warm jacket. In winter months you can consider buying your own surfing gloves. We do provide these but usually have only about 20 pairs. Similarly in summer we don't provide all the kids with surf socks, which parents can consider buying.

Can I bring my own board and wetsuit?
You can certainly bring your own wetsuit. In Winter our suits will most likely be warmer if you only have a summer wetsuit. It is safer if you use our surfboards as they are all made of foam and are more suitable for a group of people surfing together. Most privately owned boards are hard which would be dangerous in the group.

Check out our base at the end of the promenade in Lahinch. We also hold lessons in Spanish Point Beach and Doonbeg Golf Course Beach (surfers entrance) depending on tide and wave conditions.
If the surf is small in Lahinch we often move to Doonbeg Golf Course Beach, for weekend Adult lessons. There are always enough waves for a lesson in Doonbeg. Also keep in mind small waves are ideal for beginner surf lessons. Kids and Teen camps don't move location as we do games if surf is small.
