First class coaching and excellent support equipment. I brought my own equipment for the session but could have easily used the Axis boards and foils and the Ensis wings that were on site. The coaching was delivered on land with repetition to build muscle memory. On the water Jamie used helmets equipped with radio communication to tweak the coaching on the water. Jamie is a larger than life character and he brings this enthusiasm into his teaching and coaching that gives you confidence when on the water. I saw the results in an immediate improvement on the water in my Wing foiling skills. Cheers from brewery Jon.

Two middle-aged wet-suited women giving surfing a first time bash..did we love it...yes we did! These guys are great. Easy going but very professional and attentive. Shout out to Gavin and Jake. Full of great advice and tips, having a first-go at surfing in one of the most beautiful parts of Kerry was an amazing experience. Not just great value for money but a brilliant set up too. Highly recommended.

Really good afternoon spend here. We used the 1 hour special which was great for kids and adults alike. Geve the opportunity to used trampoline, slides, kayaks and pedal boats. While it said it was for an hour we were able to stay on much longer than that.

I took myself and my son out kayaking here as the weather was so nice and warm and sunny. It was a perfect Sunday afternoon for kayaking. The staff here were very accommodating and very helpful. They suggested I book a kayak for 4.30pm at 3.45pm and we did that. It was €14 for a double kayak to hire which was brilliant. We took a walk knowing we had booked our kayak and later we came back. They gave us a kayak and was helpful in making sure we get a kayak. We had the kayak for a hour and it was my son first time so I hired a double for his first time. He had a great time and he 11 and loved it. He would do it again. We enjoyed it and had great fun. The staff gave us life jackets so we didn’t have to wear wetsuits if we didn’t want to. We just went in shorts and T-Shirts and it was cool. Wetsuits would be 2 warm with the heatwave we had. Thanks to the staff at Jamie Knots for being helpful and friendly and lovely. We will be back again.

Some of the worst safety equipment I have ever seen being used anywhere. Not enough buoyancy aids available which meant we had to wait twenty minutes after our scheduled start time.
We were then given buoyancy aids with foam missing or falling out. Numerous rips or tears.
They should have been disposed of a long time ago.
Apart from the terrible condition of some of the buoyancy aids we were given the wrong sizes.
A totally lax attitude to over loading the boat used to get to the water trampoline.
The ladder on the trampoline we used was located right beside the "walk the plank" causing numerous near misses.
Friendly staff but this and any other positives are irrelevant when basic safety equipment is unusable.

Thank you for your review we have looked at this amd have implemented a few chsmges. We have invested in 300 new buoyancy aids which unfortunately got caught up in the suez canal debacle which in turn has left us running on empty. We hope we can look after you again soon.

Called to reserve a wet suit and was told it was fine there was loads in stock and just to call in. I drove 50 mins out of my way to pick this up from dingle. I called again when I was 40 mins away and all was good. But when I got there was told all the wet suits were sold out. Would have been great to get a call telling me they had put one aside knowing I was on my way or that they were sold out so I wouldn’t have had a wasted drive since I called twice. Not a great customer experience this time for me with the shop.

If you want to learn to windsurf, surf, wing foil or sup this is a great centre for instruction and equipment located on the Dingle peninsula.

We were in CastleGregory for the surfing for a few days. We had lessons one day with Kai and he was fantastic with the kids and adults alike. Got around the whole group and gave them specific coaching so even the beginners in our group were up on their boards by the end of the lesson.
We also rented surf boards and had good service from Jake and Agnes. We spent an hour on the trampoline and pedal boats. We also went to the surf shop and Gavin sorted us out with hoodies and was very helpful and great to deal with.
We were surfing at the area the local's call the Dumps, and the days we were there the waves were perfect for us, on our second week of surfing. Water was amazingly clean.

My Son went to his friends Birthday Party here today. They went on a plank and went on the trampoline and went for a spin in the speed boat and went on a peddle boat. The instructors take them from one area to another on the speed boat so the kids get to try each thing. The kids all had wet suits and life jackets on them. They all had a great time. It was a great way to celebrate a birthday party with all the friends and the sun was shining and it was a fabulous day and a warm day. Staff was lovely and helpful to the kids. My son would certainly come back and do it all again as he loved it and had a wonderful time.
