Surf & Enjoy the Waves with Beginner /Refresher Surf Lessons in West Cork

Are you an individual who has never surfed before? Or, did you only have a few lessons years ago and need a refresher to improve your surfing? SurfnSup brings to you beginner/refresher surf lessons that help you learn fast how to surf and in a fun way. Each of our surf lessons is conducted in a fun, supportive environment with an emphasis on enjoyment and safety.

During the surf sessions, our skilled instructors will break down the lessons to make them easy for you. The first part of our lesson will cover positioning on the board, how to catch waves, and ensure safety. Next, we will move on to mastering the “pop up”. Our instructors will break down the lesson so that you can learn each stage of surfing at your own pace. In the case you have tried surfing before, let your instructor know beforehand so that they can help you.
