Lucky with the weather and the heatwave when we visited. But despite the disappointing waves, the boys (16 and 12) were delighted with the afternoon of surf lesson with Johnny and co. We watched from our deckchairs and were impressed with the organisation, equipment and tuition. The boys thoroughly enjoyed their achievements of standing on the boards and the fun games they ended the session with. Nice to come home with a new skill under your belt and a new found confidence. Ps From start to finish these guys are fabulous. They even return voicemail and email messages promptly.

Booked a 3 hour session for my son and his brother, they had an absolute ball, they did really well and both felt confident enough to hire a surf board the next time they were at the beach. I'm now looking at booking SUP lesson for myself and friends. All the trainers were so happy, friendly and knowledgeable.

Never been on a paddle-board before, so was a bit nervous as to how I’d manage (I’m in my 60’s). However had a great time with Hector who was a calm friendly instructor. Small group. Started in Portrush harbour which is v sheltered and simple to learn the basics. (Despite my worries it was actually quite straightforward to get up standing on the stable boards they supply, and easy to get back on the board if you fall off - twice deliberately as a trial and once by accident). As it was lovely weather we were then able to leave the harbour on the boards and explore along the cliff at nearby Ramore Head. Great two hours. So if you fancy giving paddle-boarding a go I would thoroughly recommend these guys

Excellent experience for my kids (teen boys) at the Kids Surf Camp. And solely down to this, I now have two very eager, budding surfers who seem to have caught the surfing bug 😊 The owner couldn’t be more helpful and the instructors were the perfect amount of fun and knowledgeable with the kid’s exciting new skills coming to the fore in the very first hour!! We would have booked a second week in a heartbeat but it coincided with other commitments- much to the disappointment of my sons. Highly recommended for an extremely safe, professional and incredibly fun activity!
