Beginner Surf Lessons

Surfing is a great sport to be enjoyed by people of all ages and fitness levels. It is a great way to pick up a new sport or even just an excuse to get into the great outdoors. Beginner lessons take place in waist deep water so don’t worry if you aren’t confident in the water. We have lessons on every day for adults and kids and all you need is a towel and togs/swimsuit.
We have daily beginner surf lessons for adults and kids year round at two locations – Bundoran and Rossnowlagh. Our Bundoran surf lessons take place at Tullan Strand. Our Rossnowlagh Surf Camp is an ideal location for families and kids as it is a beach with more gentle waves and more shelter from the wind. If conditions get too big or windy in Bundoran we can move our lessons out to Rossnowlagh. Lessons available daily at 10am, 11am, 1pm and 2pm in  both locations.
