“I am the shore and the ocean, awaiting myself on both sides.” ―
Dejan Stojanovic


For those who have surfed a few times and are ready to broaden their skill set. Confidence, pop ups, paddling, catching unbroken waves, reading swell charts and navigating the line up can all be worked on in these lessons.


Where to Meet


We are located on the seafront parking at the end of the carpark beside the roundabout. You can’t miss us, look for the big white van with the Rebelle Surf Logo and sign and the lightning bolt! Maps are provided below. Parking can be tricky in Strandhill so LEAVE EXTRA TIME for parking. You may have to park in the big carpark which is a couple of minutes walk to the seafront. Factor this in! It is not possible to drop off kids or guests at the roundabout as it causes congestion for other cars so please park and don’t do drop offs.


Meeting point is in the main carpark facing beach.

What makes us unique is our awareness of the direct link between a surfers performance and their emotional state and personal belief systems. What if I was to tell you that 70 % of surfing is actually in the head?!

We believe that surfing is a direct path to joy, self awareness, release and empowerment. Ultimately it can be a liquid pathway to freedom if worked with consciously. The founder of this company has been working with this approach for 14 years and has been delivering workshops internationally and throughout Ireland. Check out her latest short film she created with award winning film producer Jimmy Kyle: ‘The Ocean’

Every session has this valuable feedback on offer based on our observations of your body language, stance and interaction with the ocean and other surfers.  However if that’s not your thing don’t worry , its optional!

It’s your choice how to chose to engage with your surfing and we’re here to make it happen.
