Overview

Established in summer 2013 with just 7 surfboards and 20 wetsuits The Surf Shack was opened on June 29th by a group of stoked friends wanting to share the surf with Co.Wexford. We have been open for just 3 years and now offer surf lessons for both adults and kids, private groups and public lessons! Along with this we offer SUP and a load of fun activities to do on the beach including Sandboarding, Lessons and Rentals. We facilitate groups from birthdays parties to school tours as well as private & small group lessons. If thats not for you...enjoy a coffee & treat under the palm trees while the others surf.
