Join us on this iconic 7 days carefree coldwater Surf-Holiday
Surfing in Ireland? In November? That’s what we’ve been doing for 5 years! We celebrate our 5th year anniversary of our evergreen and popular surf holiday in Ireland! Once more, we explore the hidden beachbreaks of Northwest Ireland. Just know, this celebration requires a costume: 5.4mm wetsuit, booties, gloves and a neoprene beanie. Sure it is going to be cold, but that is a fair price to pay for quality waves, empty Line-Ups and heartwarming hospitality.
Excellent waves for experienced beginners & intermediates
Ireland offers world-class waves, especially in winter. Hit by north/west swells from the North Atlantic, in can get huge! But don’t worry: the rugged landscapes provide a lot of beach- and reefbreaks which are sheltered from big swells. This means that on small days you can find waves in open west facing spots and hide out in sheltered bays on big days– for 7 days of everyday surf!
Empty beaches & wild landscapes
Cold water and outside temperatures keep away most of the holiday surfers, allowing for empty line-ups surrounded by mountains, green grass and wild cliffs. From the line-up and in your exploration time, you’ll have an impressive view on the mystical land of Ireland which will leave you overwhelmed.

What to expect
The idea of our surfcoaching trips is to really improve your surfing. At the beginning of the trip, we set your individual goals which we will focus on for the week. One daily surfcoaching, backed up with ocean knowledge, surf theory and video analysis will make sure that we work on your skills through a variety of instruments to get the best out of it.
Even though we surf as a group of max. 6, surfcoach Angie will teach each of you individually. This includes assesssment of your surfing level, setting fixed goals, explaining drills and exercises, coaching in and outside of the water, demonstrating and explaining.

Accomodation & Day to Day
Lean back from day 1 on this carefree trip.
On the first day of the trip, we will meet in Dublin. We recommend arriving a couple of days earlier to explore this vivid city! From there, we will pick you up and bring you to your home for the week. In the cosy irish house, you’ll stay in shared twin rooms. If you prefer a single room, we can arrange this for an additional fee.
We will start every day with a nutritious power breakfast and finish it with a re-energizing dinner served by chef Basti. If we don’t surf straight after breakfast, we either learn something in a surftheory session, go exploring or relax until it’s time to surf. To fight the cold, we love to go out to one of the local pubs for a tea, whiskey or dark beer at the end of the day. In between, we will take short trips to explore the mystical land of Ireland or just warm up on the couch at home if you prefer taking it slow.

Does this trip suit me?
In Advance: This trip is nothing for the faint hearted. Participants will face the Irish weather in November with wind, hail, fog and sunshine, somtimes all in one day, as well as coldwater. It’s worth is for the quality surf and hospitable people.
#IrishIdols will be run as a Surf-Holiday trip. In a 7 day timeframe, we will coach you individually within a group, so expect your surfing to improve immensely. We use direct & indirect coaching techniques, in and outside of the water.
With one surfsession per day, you will have enough free time to relax and recharge your batteries. However, if the waves are epic, and our muscles allow, we might go for a sneaky freesurf on some of the days if you’re up for it!
This NOMB Surfcoaching trip is open to surflevel 2-4, so experienced beginners and up.
