Bens Surf Clinic is Ireland’s original hard board surf school. With over 23 years coaching experience, the school runs fun surf coaching sessions for all levels year round. Groups are kept small (max eight per coach) with a focus on more water time.

Based right on the sea front in Lahinch, there is a surf school, surf shop and adventure centre. The surf school provide changing facilities with lockers, hot showers and indoor coaching areas right on the surf. There is a full range of soft and hard boards for lessons and rental. The lessons are for two hours in the water, with coaching throughout. All equipment is provided.

All the coaches are level 2/3 ISA surf coaches and Ben is one of only three International Surf Association Level 1 Coaches and an ISA Surf Tutor and Level 3 Coach (surf instructor trainer).

We provide one off lessons for beginners, intermediate and advanced, weekend/week long courses and adult, kids and teen camps for all levels.

We also offer other activities such as rock climbing in the Burren, kayak trips on the river Inagh, indoor climbing, archery and stand up paddle boarding (SUP).
