About Rossnowlagh Surf School
Rossnowlagh Surf School is a fun & friendly Surf School, It was set up in 2014 by James Garvey with the help from a few close surfing buddies! Since then it has gone from strength to strength, rapidly becoming one of the best surf schools around for top quality Surf Lessons & Advanced Coaching. We are a hard working bunch, with a lust for life ... And surfing!

There is nothing worse than going surfing in an old torn Wet-suit & a battered surfboard, which is why we have all New Equipment & Wet-suits for you or your child. We also always offer surf lessons with a small Student to Coach ratio to insure the best Surfing experience.
