Great news! We are running The Big Splash Kids Surf Club twice daily throughout the summer. It is going to look a bit different this year – but just as fun! Please read our covid page for more info. If you are booking a child aged 6-8, a parent/guardian must please stay for the whole surf club.

A week of surf lessons, bible workshops, games, activities, and more in Portrush!

Children aged 6-14, can attend either on a day-to-day basis, or they can sign up for the whole week at the Big Splash Kids’ Surf Club, where they will be cared for in a safe environment, giving parents a break to enjoy some down-time!

My kids had the best two weeks, everyone was so friendly and caring. They learned so much!

Portrush Kids' ClubParent

Our kids thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of kids club. They had an amazing week & want to return for both weeks next year. The Surf Project is an excellent & very well run facility; a credit to all those involved.

My child really enjoys the surf camp and looks forward to it every summer.

My son said it was the best week of his life. The volunteers were amazing and I loved how well cared for he was. The certificates were a lovely touch at the end too.

Portrush Kids' ClubParent

Outstanding. I love how positive and encouraging everyone is and the energy and enthusiasm of all the leaders is fantastic. My daughter says the whole thing was amazing. My son says the surfing was amazing and it was great to learn more about God when surfing. We give it 5 stars.

The surf project was the absolute highlight of his summer - if we had known how wonderful it was going to be we would have booked a hotel in Waterford for the week and followed you all down there!

Donegal Kids' ClubParent

I felt quite emotional every day collecting him, to see such an unexpectedly wonderful experience so close to home - you have given us memories and positive experiences that will far outlast the week you were here.

The Surf Project is

more than a surf school

Whilst we are the only surf school in Northern Ireland that is fully accredited and approved by the ISA (Irish Surfing Association), we do NOT offer exclusive lessons to the public.

Surfing is of course central to our activities, but it is always part of a much wider programme. Whenever we are asked about lessons or board rental, we always direct people to local surf schools.

Please contact us to find out more. Let’s talk!
