In the summer (since we're still calling it that for the moment!) or more specifically July and  August, we have a double decker bus on Keel beach serving teas and coffee and acting as a base for the surf school.
2016 saw the opening of our coding camp for kids and a 2017 will introduction of programmable drones and robots into the camp.



A terribly sad day for all involved. May Alex's parents and family and the families of the others involved have an abundance of strength and courage over the days and months ahead.

This is what we were watching at Nazare yesterday, truly epic stuff. Very few people will do this, but we all have our own Nazares to deal with,whether its an overhead reef or your first encounter with breaking waves.We will be taking bookings again from the beginning of February,so if you want to conquer your own Nazare this year,you can book online or call,us on 0872495175 and write your own surfing story in 2018!

Walls of water the size of very large houses! Incredible waves on the Portugese coast.#itsbeentoolong #Nazare #LiquidAwesome Martha Burton now you know! Patrick Hankey we missed this one 30 years ago!

So there's another storm on the way.This time I'm going to be somewhere pretty special when the swell lands! Any guesses?

Looking for some last minute inspiration?

If you're a confirmed landlubber or you just can't get enough adventure in your life..or if you know someone who would like this as a gift..couldn't be in better hands..

Here's a kit that combines programming with a bit of electronics and an innovative step where Minecraft problems are solved by creating real world electronic devices-plus kids get to construct their own computer using a Raspberry Pi device. Not cheap at $299 (they are running a special at the moment for $209 with the code 'HOLIDAYGIFT' but for kids aged 8-12 it could be a fascinating gift.

With all the hype of Bitcoin pushing to almost $7000 and the interest in crypto currencies,it's worth remembering what the most sought after tech skills are at the moment..and its in the robotics field that the greatest demand exists Our summer coding camps are a great start for kids that are interested in coding or robotics.For Summer 2018 we will be introducing a programmable electronic building block platform so little creators can build a variety of products using intuitive flow-based programming.. If you are interested in our programme for summer 2018,drop us an e-mail to for further details.

If you feel like doing a bit of work on your pop-up...

New for this season...
