After our meet and greet at the Sligo Surf Experience surf van, you or your group will be asked to sign-in for the surf lesson. Everyone must sign-in before their surf session. We operate on a no sign – no surf policy.
Our surf experiences last approximately 2.5 hours from start to finish including a meet and greet, changing time and a 2-hour surf lesson.
We hope you trust us when we say you will have a safe, fun and enjoyable time.
Our surf sign-in process requires you to disclose any medical issues or special needs you or your group may have that the Sligo Surf Experience manager should be aware of. Apart from discussing any issues, if necessary, with your surfer’s instructor, we treat any disclosure with strict confidentiality.
After your sign-in, you will get your own washed and sanitized wetsuit and surf boots to keep you warm for the duration of your surf lesson. Hot and cold showers as well as changing facilities are available on-site at the National Surf Centre for Sligo Surf Experience customers.
You can store your belongings with our surf school at the meeting point while you are on the beach.
Your surf instructor will guide you through the entire experience. When you are changed, your instructor(s) will guide you to the beach where you will collect your surfboard. On the beach, you will listen to a short demo and safety talk from your instructor. First is a brief introduction, instruction on surfing ABCs with basic water safety and then a quick practice on the sand before hitting the ocean to practice what you’ve learned. In the water, we hope you’ll catch the wave of your life. Warning surfing is addictive and may lead to considerable thrills and spills.
After the lesson, you will return to the surf school, collect your belongings, get changed and place the wetsuits and boots in a bucket for sanitization.
