Join us an intermediate 7 days coldwater Surf-Holiday
Travel and surf quality waves in Ireland with likeminded surfers. This NOMB surf coaching trip is our annual surf holiday for experienced intermediate surfers. While the cold water might be a challenge for board shorts surfer, the conditions make up for it: We are talking about plenty of quality beach breaks with pumping waves and empty Line-ups.
Our local partner surf school Narosa with surf coach Lee and NOMB surf coach Angie select the best daily spots and will coach you in the water to improve your positioning and overall wave game.
Excellent waves for experienced intermediates
Ireland offers world-class waves, especially in winter. Hit by north/west swells from the North Atlantic, it can get huge! But don’t worry: the rugged landscapes provide a lot of beach- and reef breaks which are sheltered from big swells and wind. A promising prospect for 7 days of everyday quality 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 – a unique setting to enjoy during your surf holiday.

What to expect
The idea of our surf coaching trips is to improve your surfing while exploring new spots and waves. At the beginning of the trip, we set your individual goals which we will focus on for the week. One daily surf coaching, 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, surf coach Angie will teach each of you individually. This includes assessment 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 Ray. 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.

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. I Ireland 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 3+, so intermediate and up.
