Continual Progression

To stay excited about surfing it’s always good to be learning new skills and setting new challenges. Whatever standard you are our Advanced Progression Surf Coaches can encourage you to greater heights. A few secrets about how kids get so good at surfing so quickly when they start young, is how they surf together, learn and compete against each other. It’s no different for adults, bringing people together to be coached is key! In our two day course we use the GO-PRO camera which helps amazingly to show your strengths and mistakes.

You can do hard-board (BIC Surfboards) or softboard Advanced Beginner or Intermediates coaching with Lahinch Surf School. You don’t need to be a Pro or to have your own equipment! You just need to have some experience of the basics and an abiliity to ride a wave for 10 or 20 ft to the beach. We aim to encourage you to the next level in your surfing. The key is to build on a good foundation towards doing turns, learning how to use rips and catching waves before they break. There is a lot to learn.



Basic format is 3 Surf Sessions over two days.

Session 1: We look at your level and set some attainable goals, decide which board works best for you – coaching begins.

Session 2: It’s time to be on tv! Break out the go-pro water cam. No better way to learn than seeing for yourself. This is definitely a fun part, we go to our “coaching-house” on main street and connect up to the big screen, checking out all the moves. The anticipation of seeing that perfect wave you caught. The Go-Pro definitely lends to great coaching.

Session 3: Build on having been encouraged from seeing a few of your own waves and now having the knowledge on what to work on. Get out there and do it on sunday morning. Session 4 is an optional rental session on Sunday avo.

The progression program course is a really fun weekend of intense surfing & coaching mixed with good fun and new friends. You can quickly make progress on your surfing in two days.
