Hi Tom, Smurf, Jayo, Yes its been and gone another fab summer surfing with Kingdom Waves on Inch beach. I have 3 girls Ellen 17, and the twins Sarah and Eimear are 13 this is they’re 4th great year of surfing with the lads they are fantastic. Tom you have the best crew working with you Smurf and J are just the best, professional, kind and safety aware.The girls have learnt to respect the sea, understand the tides and much much more they are confident in the water. They have learnt awareness while learning how to surf and have fun they can catch the waves stand on the board and ride the waves they love it and they also have made many friends on the camps.
Patience is a virtue and the lads have it is abundance. one of the twins have cerebral palsy and the lads are just so good with her they have her kneeling on the board and got her to standing what an achievement, they just love Smurf and Jayo so thank you Tom for giving Sarah this wonderful chance and the girls last year they were dancing at the worlds in Kerry and had to do one day Surfing camp so same on the cards for next year I could not recommend Tom, Smurf and Jayo highly enough Kingdom Waves in our opinion is the number one Surf School heres to many more years of surfing thanks lads x the Wards 🙂

A big surfing Thank you to Smurf Jayo Tom Barry and Tim . Tom you have a fantastic crew behind you Smurf and Jayo thanks so much for all the fun. Smurf thanks for always keeping things safe and the special way you look after a sarah it means so much. The girls look forward to there Summer Camp so here’s to next year x
Just last evening I was surfing a good size swell (head high or so) at Inch Reef. My leashed snapped ducking a wave and I had a very long swim back to shore, ducking waves and making my way through foam. This is not a good position to be in. Tom, the owner of Kingdom Waves was the only other surfer in the water. He paddled into sure with me, despite assuring him I would be fine, just to make sure I was safe. He gave up his day for my safety. (Keep in mind this is not the break where the surf schools take place. The surf lessons are at a much more appropriate break.)
My kids have already learned to surf elsewhere, but if they were to go to a school, this is the kind of attention to safety I would want as a parent. Give Kingdom Waves a try. You’ll be in good hands.
Went to inch today as part of a large stag group. 5 star treatment. Top class lessons from start to finish. Tom and his crew were very welcoming and gave us a Great experience. I even left my jacket behind and they are going to post it on to me 👍Keep up the good work.
