The Surf Academy

2011 saw the beginning of our our Surf Academy. The Academy is for kids or teens who have successfully completed one of our week long Summer Camps. These classes will be run every Saturday morning at both Inch and Banna Beach from 10 am to 12pm. There will be a maximum ratio of 1:6 for these classes.

At Banna beach we have been delighted to see a dedicated group coming back every Saturday morning right into the Winter months so watch out there is going to be some good young Kerry surfers coming soon!

The goal of these classes is to provide the next step for kids who want to keep up surfing and help them progress.

The only but very important pre-requisite of these classes is that a student can catch their own wave and stand up un-aided.

Surf Lesson details:

  • Revising what was learnt in the week camp
  • Focusing on technique and style
  • Paddling out the back, catching green waves.
  • Going across the wave, turning, cut-backs etc.
  • Video Analysis will be used when conditions suit.


15 Euro for 2 hours surf lesson, equipment and instruction included! This assumes the student has done a summer camp or a week long course.
