When I was coming to Achill for Bank Holliday weekend with no intention to surf. As it turned out I would miss so much by not trying it.
For me it was first time so when my friends were trying on their own I decided to book a lesson. It was indeed good decision. Our instructor gave us (a group of 6 people) quick introduction to surfing, then showed some basic movements and techniques and let us try on our own.
I totally loved the whole experience even though weather was not best to say at least. It was basically raining (not heavily) all the time and temperatures were around 13C. And the view on mountains and beach (Keel Sandybanks) were terrific though. Waves were good for beginners and wet suit make surfing possible even in this kind of weather.
The instructor was coming to us individually and giving us a helping hand and good advises.
Very recommended! If you haven't tried surfing before take classes and it will make your experience way more comfortable and plainly better :) After that you can just try surfing on your own.
