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 16 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. 

We teach everyone, all ages, sizes, fitness levels. Give it a go!
