Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Connell took 4 of us for a lesson on Portstewart strand. The whole experience was relaxed and enjoyable. We were fitted with Wetsuits boots and hoods, given our vests very easily.

Health and safety training was all confidently explained and we were given good explanation of techniques to use ahead of getting into the water. Much more enjoyable than previous lessons I’ve had elsewhere and Connell made the whole time fun. Equipment was good and overall had a good 1h30 in the water wreaking havoc in the waves. A great way to spend a morning or afternoon.

We had a fantastic beginner surf lesson with Connell at Portstewart Strand. Connell is an enthusiastic and encouraging teacher who gave clear and patient instruction and instilled us with so much confidence. He broke each step down on land initially and had us practising in the water in no time. In the water he was always on hand to help/guide us and keep us safe. His knowledge and passion for his sport shines through. We had the best craic and can’t wait to go back! Highly recommend!

Could not have asked for a better SUP experience than the morning we had led by Carl. We were a mix of complete beginner, a little experience, and some regular SUP outings. Not only did we all feel safe and secure, but we all learned something new and the craic was just the best - plenty of laughter! A great time, simply the best!

Had a brilliant improver lesson with Connell. He was great at giving technical advice and helping with confidence. Really nice experience at beautiful white rocks. Would highly recommend.

From the moment I booked our SUP session online to the end was such a wonderful experience! The website was so user friendly, easy to book and then the texts after we’re so helpful and responsive…and that is just the start!

We met our instructor Leah at Whiterocks and she immediately put us at ease as she was so dead on and friendly. Also a person was genuinely interested in you and your life and was so interesting herself! She was able to size us up for wetsuits and told us to take our time and no rush!

This session was for me and my daughter who’ve never SUP’ed or went much further than ankles into the sea in years! She provided so much information with patience and kindness but stressed the importance of the main things to remember…repeating until it sink in! I wasnt sure if I’d even kneel on the paddle boards as I feel I’m a clumsy type at the best of times but by the end of the session she had both me and my daughter on our feet sailing away on the ocean. I cannot begin to describe how surreal and confident I felt when it felt like it was just me there and the sea. It was the most beautiful experience, the water, the scenery, sharing this with my daughter. Yet knowing we were safe in the hands of Leah. I’ve challenged myself to do more things since my father recently passed and I just felt so proud of me and my daughter and it was because of Leah’s great teaching and belief in us!

I left buzzing for the rest of the day, can’t wait to do it again and felt like I’d made a friend in Leah…who even brought us surprise donuts for after! One of the very best experiences I’ve had in a long time and I’d recommend to anyone! Also she took pictures and film of us which were stunning (well of my daughter and scenery haha) and will also be treasured! Thank you Leah!!

We did a 2.5 hour session for beginners. We had never surfed before, but it was no problem. The coaches were very nice and funny and they took care of everyone. The time flew by, but at the end we even managed to get up on the board. I would recommend anyone to take a course at this surf school. You learn a lot very quickly and it's a lot of fun!

I booked my kids into a surf session with Conall in July. My boys loved it and found Conall great fun as well as a fab surf instructor. I was super impressed with the skills the kids were taught, they were actually standing up on the boards quite quickly. Above all else they had so much fun. The wetsuits provided fitted well and were thick winter wetsuits so the kids were warm throughout. Would highly recommend sub 6 for a kids or family surf session. Thank you sub6.
