You will be provided with a wetsuit surfboard and booties I will have a brief safety talk about the beach and where we will surf. I will then take you onto the beach for the initial instruction. I will take you through the different parts of the surfboard, explain about the leash and what it is for. I will then take you through the paddle and "pop up" (from lying position to standing) sequence. Still on dry land, we will make any adjustments needed to the "pop up". I will explain the sea conditions, rips, currents, safety etc, and take you through the instructor hand signals. This will take approximately 15 minutes. Then, its time to hit the water and catch some white water waves. Throughout the time in the water it is our aim to get you from the prone position on the surfboard to standing and riding the waves to shore. We will be supervising you in the water at all times and the instructor will help and answer any questions you may have. Your job is to have FUN. At the end of the lesson we will ask for feedback and appreciate any that you may wish to give.
I, and family have been involved in surfing since the late 70's. I started surfing on the East Coast of Ireland, then spent most weekends and holidays travelling to the West coast to surf. Surfing also took us abroad. Surfing in France, Spain, Portugal and Morocco. Eventually it was decided to move, lock, stock and barrel to the North West Coast in 2000. Some years later, after much discussion, and planning I decided to turn a hobby into a business. I completed the Irish Surfing Level 1 instructor course some time in the 80's. I became a swim teacher and a tutor for the Royal Lifesaving Society. This resource has been invaluable to the surf school when teaching beginners to surf.

We are based on Enniscronne beach, Sligo, Ireland and can be found easily at the lifeguard station where we will meet up. There are public toilets and a beach shower. The beach is 7 kilometers long. It is a sandy beach with waves that are described as rollers, which make it ideal for surfing. Access to the beach is very easy. There are lifeguards on duty in July and August.
