At GTown, we believe in Learning to Surf safely, with respect to the ocean & others and with expert tuition!

All our instructors are fully qualified and ISA approved Surf Instructors and Beach /Pool lifeguards.

Our Surf School started in 2004 with just a few boards and a bunch of enthusiasm! Since then we have grown and many stoked people have learned to surf with us. Kids, Teens, Adults, Mom’s & Dad’s, no matter who you are it’s never too late to start surfing! With GTown, we’ll show you all the tricks and tools to enjoy Irelands fastest growing Sport!

Surfing has experienced huge growth in Ireland over the last few years, some say too much but here at GTown we pride ourselves on encouraging people to learn to surf through the correct progressions and to observe safe surfing practice and knowing the rules in the water. In a sense, to become an accomplished surfer you need to serve a Surf apprenticeship.

Every time you hit the water can be fun and gainful but respect for local surfers, the beach and safety are paramount. Through our system of guided Improver lessons our customers cannot fastrack but gain a clearer understanding of how to become an accomplished surfer that can enjoy the fabulous coastline that Ireland is blessed with.

So that’s the deal folks, we offer a complete package for Surfing at GTown, drop us an email at info@surfgtown.com,call 0878768549 or “High 5!” us the next time we meet you in the water.
