Beginner Surf Weekend - August

Join us for the latest trip. Itinerary below:

Fri 23rd August

7.30pm Arrival and Check-In

8pm-10pm  Tea/Coffee reception in Surf N Stay on the Shore road, meet and get to know the group.

10pm - ? Local pubs for a beer or two

Sat 24th August

Breakfast is served each day from 8am - 11am, and then we will meet in the surf lodge to get our equipment. Your wetsuits, surfboards, lessons, and instructors are all included in the price.

We will surf from about 12.30 until 3pm each day, after a light warm-up and a quick lesson on the beach before taking to the waves to practice . Surf instructors will be in the water with you to give advice and take some action photos. A beginner will only be waist deep in the water so if you fall off your surf board just stand up!

Photos and videos of your surfing will be taken for our post surf analysis back at the lodge. These photos are great for your Facebook profile too!

After surfing, we will return to the surf lodge for hot chocolate.

Saturday night we will have our evening party with a few beers in the Surf lodge before we go to the pub across the road for Pizza night. Live entertainment, drinking and dancing until late and only 10 metres from the lodge!

Sun 25th August

Same format for surfing on Sunday, a light breakfast (self service) followed by a warm up and lesson on the beach and then into the water again. This is a chance to improve on Saturday's class and have some fun in the water. Instructors will be there to hone your skills.

Hot chocolate will be served when we get back to the surf lodge.

Cost:

€110. Balance due on arrival is €70, €40 deposit comes off the price.

All Inclusive Package includes:

2 days surf lessons and all equipment, surf board, wetsuits, boots, gloves etc.

2 nights accommodation (private rooms available, sleeps 3 people)

2 breakfasts at the surf lodge and Saturday evening pizza party at the pub across the road.

Photos and video of your surf lesson will be uploaded to the site for you.  (Perfect for updating your facebook profile. Our cameras are waterproof for up close action)

Hope to See You in the Ocean Soon ....

Davey

Car pooling is encouraged and a donation of €10 each way is suggested, please post on the site if you can offer a lift or require a lift.

Any other questions just post a comment here and one of our organisers will come back to you,

Due to the number of no shows only those with paid deposits can be guaranteed a space, booking will close a few days before the event to get numbers sorted for the surf lodge. If you don't have paypal just drop us a message to confirm, thanks.

      Just a little tip to y'all when commenting on here:

      It is easier to keep track of your conversations if you click on reply to the comment to which you are referring to.

      As soon as there are more comments on here you can easily get lost.

    That of course should have read 'afterwards let me know'
    English is hard enough to learn without me confusing things further lol
