Lahinch is usually busy at weekends, so surfing midweek is quieter, more personal and definitely laid back!
In Off-season months, if you are coming alone, you can provisionally book the date that works for you and wait to see if anyone else books (joining a group lesson is less than the private lessons, plus its nice to make new friends!).
If nobody else wishes to surf that day, then it becomes an Off-peak private lesson. (It’s great if you really want to focus on certain skills, or need some specific coaching)
Usually September till November and March till May we’ll have a few days a week where people are surfing mid-week and you can join up to get the group rate.
