  • To make the most out of the lessons you would need to be able to catch a white water wave easily and have a reasonable pop up

Bundoran Surf Co uses several local beaches for surf lessons. Tullan Strand in Bundoran is the main beach in the summer as it nearly always has waves. If Tullan is flat it is likely that all other beaches in the area are also flat, when the swell is big Bundoran Surf Co sometimes uses Rossnowlagh or Streedagh. Rossnowlagh has the most gentle waves but can be exposed to the wind. Streedagh has more powerful waves and offers good protection from west and south west winds. Both beaches like mid to high tides. On a really big swell, Bundoran Surf Co uses Mullaghmore beach, which has good wind protection.

    "Love the relaxed atmosphere, tidy rooms, & excellent instruction , next door to grocery store literally is terribly convenient! Kitchen was great and organised, but could have opened earlier than 8:30am so as to chill, read, etc nicely fitted for internet. Suggest an apres surf hot tub and WiFi coverage in the rooms (not just downstairs). My daughter loved the comfort and had everything we needed. Thumbs up!"

    "Brilliant crew at Bundoran Surf Co. Always the first place we go for gear and lessons any time we're surfing out that way. They introduced us to surfing with our first lesson a few years ago and we've been back in to buy boards, wetsuits and improver lessons since. They're always great value and offer genuine advice. Highly recommended!"

    "Fantastic place to bring kids for weeks summer camp. We had a great time from Sunday until Saturday. Management is very flexible and kind regards accommodation requests. Brilliant value for what you get. Rooms simple but very clean and comfortable. All trainers in surf camp are extremely patient with tough kids and very helpful sharing their tips. Make any beginner feel welcome and gives a great support. Thanks to all team! After a great week, we decided to feed the whole lodge with freshly grilled BBQ mackerel from a local bay. It was still being talked about the next morning! And thanks for grill, supplied by Bundoran Surf Co! Looking forward to bring our skills forward next season."

    "So glad we tried surfing in Donegal last week with these guys. Completely put us all at ease and Rob in particular was so great with our daughter. She struggled with the surfing and he spent so much time making her feel proud of herself. When she had done enough surfing, he helped show her how to jump off the rocks and she left feeling so pleased that she had really achieved something. All the guys were great and I would recommend this company to anyone of any age and ability. Thanks for a great experience!"
