Dexter and the lads are great and well sound. Good craic, laughs and hassle free. We all learned loads with our instruction on Saturday and were able to just hire the equipment on Sunday. Highly recommended

Thank you very much for the happy&unique experience. We had such a good fun. Our instructor Dexter was tireless to explain every detail to us. He was very efficient&professional. Don't miss the chance to ride the waves of the Wild Atlantic. You will never ever forget it. Would definitely recommend it to have a try with Lahinc Surf Experience.

The guys are very friendly and professional, proper banter out of them, and they'll make you feel at home. Dexter is a good coach, patient and direct with his instructions. He's also a good little bundle of craic. The only... More

Our 3 children did surf camp with Lahinch Surf Experience and three had a ball. They were encouraged to try hard and learn to surf but always to gave great fun. Each child in the group got the attention they needed to progress and enjoy it. Looking forward to next year.

We had loads of fun, learned a lot even in the beginner lesson, not to mentionantion that Lahinch beach is the absolute perfect location to... More
