Lahinch surf centre surf school Beginnings

surfing Lahinch

Established in 2002 by Local dedicated surfer and surf instructor Ollie Welsh! Ollie first started surfing in Lahinch in 1988 with some school friends on equipment borrowed from some generous older local surfers! Back then with no surf schools in Lahinch the poorly equipped aspiring surfers all learned the hard and slow way!

Eventually after a long time playing and practicing surfing the white water in Lahinch we finally made it out to the back of the waves and graduated on the fun reef breaks close by to Lahinch! Little tid bits of information were handed down by some of the more experienced guys! Of which back then there were only a few!

Since then Ollie traveled the world searching out waves spending a lot of time in places like Indonesia, Australia, Canary Islands and the whole west coast of Europe traveling and working as a surf instructor!
