Surf Lessons

The combination of adrenaline, idyllic Wicklow surroundings and the satisfaction of catching your first few waves ensures that you'll have an unforgettable experience with us here at Brittas Bay Surf School on the East Coast of Ireland!

First time surfers can expect to learn the easiest and correct methods of standing up on a surfboard, basic surfing techniques, safe board handling in the water, and general water safety awareness – essential knowledge and skills for taking your personal surfing to the next level.

Some places may not care less about safety and accreditation, but just so you know, we pride ourselves on offering the most professional surf lessons & coaching sessions with a dedicated small student/instructor ratio that keeps safety as its top priority – right next to you having fun, that is. We use soft safe ISA Approved surfboards that are easy to learn on and keep you warm with 5/3mm Billabong wetsuits. (Booties, hoods and gloves are also used from November until March). All of our instructors are fully qualified in either a level 1 or level 2 surf coaching, are qualified beach lifeguards and have a certificate in child protection.

There really is nothing quite like catching that very first wave!

NOTE: Sometimes we like to take photographs of our surf lessons in action!  These photos may be used on our website, in our literature or on our Facebook page.  If you would prefer not to have your photo taken, that's no problem just let us know!
