A brilliant lesson for a family of four. We've had lessons on occasion over years and these guys were easily the best we've had. A holiday highlight for our teenagers. We have already recommended to other other family members heading this way. Thank you. X

All the team were great and ensured we had a fun week. They were able to work with adults and children in the same group and help all of us understand how the technical side of surfing works too. Ali, Peter, Jude and Ricardo were extremely professional. Thank you Aloha!

My grandson Eamon, aged 8 and French/Irish had a brilliant week with all the crew at Aloha Surf School. Great instruction from Ricardo and Jude. They were so good with the young group. Well done. Ali at base and Peter your standards are excellent and you run a great school. I can highly recommend Aloha for anyone wishing to surf the Wild Atlantic Way.

We had a great week at the surf school in Fanore. None of us had ever been surfing before, but we were in great hands with Pete, Ali and the team. Would highly recommend! A very active, enjoyable holiday for two adults and two young teenagers.

Fantastic day out. Peter was a brilliant instructor. He had huge patience and really knew everything to do with surfing and the water. I would recommend this to anybody.

Me and my friends went for a surf weekend in Fanore and booked a lesson for the first day. The group were of mixed ability and Pete was amazing at ensuring everyone was engaged and learning something new the entire time. He took his time explaining the basics, but also showed a few of us how to catch a green wave. Amazing experience. Couldn't rate it any higher, and having completed many lessons before with numerous other instructors, Pete was definitely the best. Worth a lesson with him no matter what your ability. Looking forward to heading up surfing with Pete and Ali again soon !!

My very first time surfing and I had an awesome experience with Pete and Ali at Aloha Surf School! Pete gave an excellent lesson, breaking down the basics and coaching in the water, making the experience super fun and encouraging. And Ali was so welcoming and helpful with fitting the wetsuits. Plus, their location on Fanore Beach is spectacular with the Burren and sand dunes as a beautiful backdrop. A great experience all round with Pete and Ali :) I definitely recommend Aloha Surf School for their lessons and rentals. I'll be back for sure!
