Learn to surf in five days with a Sligo Surf Experience surf camp
. A surfing summer camp is one of the best things to do in Sligo and is great value for money. We offer five days of surfing activities at a 20% discount. The price includes the cost of hiring the surf equipment for the week.
Our adult surf camps are a structured five-day surfing course that will teach basic surfing techniques to camp participants over the first three days. Once a participant has mastered the ABCs of surfing the goal is to introduce some intermediate surf techniques by the end of the week.
Summer camps for teens (15 -18) are also available. Our most popular summer camp is our U16s Ocean Warrior Surf Camp suitable for nine to fifteen-year-olds. Sligo Surf Experience's Ocean Warrior surf camp is an award-winning five-day surf camp at Strandhill Beach. Activities include surfing or bodyboarding, beach games, environmental education, water safety and ocean awareness and, of course, lots of fun in the ocean. You need to bring swimming gear and a towel and the surf school supplied the rest of the necessary surfing equipment (wetsuit, boots, boards).
Our summer camps are available Mondays to Fridays in July and August. Surf camps are the perfect introduction to Sligo surfing. All our Strandhill surf camps are personally supervised by Sligo Surf Experience owner Seamus Mc Goldrick, a professional surfing coach. All summer camps last two and a half hours per day. The minimum age for surfing camps is nine years old. Camp participants will learn to surf and a lot more in a safe, fun, structured environment. All our instructors are experienced surfers who know everything there is to know about Strandhill surfing.
A surf lesson in Strandhill is a great way to build a young person's confidence and understanding of the ocean. The summer camp is designed to bring out the inner Ocean Warrior in every participant regardless of ability with the help and expert guidance of Seamus Mc Goldrick and his friendly and engaging team of Sligo Surf Experience instructors. The aim of the Ocean Warrior surf camp is to change attitudes and behaviours towards the water and ensure that each student leaves with lifelong respect and awareness of the ocean. In addition to learning essential water safety knowledge, participants will get lots of information about surfing in Sligo.
