My husband and I joined a family group for an introductory lesson on a windy late summer day. Fantastic fun and a great experience was had by all. John pitched the lesson at the right level and was able to handle the varying degrees of aptitude very well. I wouldn't hesitate to do it again. A good way to burn... More

John was great with the kids, safety and equipment briefing then straight into the sea. Definitely recommend , we had the family lesson and the two hours... More

When a sporting activity is run by some who is a) local and b) enthusiastic about the activity they are coaching then it can only be fun! So it was in this case; John, who owns Surf SUP NI, runs a safe, fun and very comprehensive 2 hour introductory experience for first time SUP paddlers. Despite the title, there was... More

My daughter and I were looking for something different to try and this defiantly was! We were firstly greeted by by John and got our wetsuits and wet shoes on.
