Rebelle Surf run lessons, camps, private coaching sessions, retreats and workshops for men, women, children, families, groups and businesses. Most lessons are run in Strandhill but they also run sessions in Streedagh and Enniscrone. Their lessons range from straight up surf sessions focussing on pop ups, turning, body position and wave selection to surf lessons with play. They also organise packages combining surf with anything from wellness, yoga, food, massage, seaweed baths and accommodation. Twice weekly they run the highly popular 'Women’s Surf Series'. These sessions are designed specifically to empower women in the surf environment.
The technical skills they will teach you include everything from beginner white water sessions to more advanced green wave sessions and cover everything in between. All the instructors are fully qualified and experienced surfers. They encourage and help you find your own style and strengths.
Some see surfing as purely a sport but Rebelle Surf sees things a little differently. Melanie the owner has a background in bodywork and energy practices which are combined with surfing and have developed into a form of ocean surf therapy she calls ‘Mind Body Surf’ clinics.
The ‘Mind Body Surf’ clinics aim to provide a deeper experience. The owner believes that a person’s emotional state, personal beliefs and past experiences can have a direct impact on their ability to surf and this is included subtly as part of every session. They believe surfing is the ultimate form of moving meditation that requires complete presence. Rebelle Surf also believes that this state of presence combined with the raw power of the ocean is why most surfers claim to experience such peace and joy when they are immersed in the ocean and surfing.
