Stand Up Paddleboarding

Our mission is to give you the Ultimate SUP Experience

Entertaining: The SUP DUDE Experience is about joy, laughter and having a super fun time whilst learning the proper technique, etiquette, and safety of Stand Up Paddling.

Authentic: SUP DUDE prides itself on using excellent equipment for your lessons to give you the Ultimate SUP experience. Unlike many other SUP Schools we only use top quality Starboard SUP’s. We do not use inferior cheap foam boards or hollow plastic boards. We use Red Paddle adjustable alloy paddles to suit all heights of users. Our large selection of new Circle One wetsuits and buoyancy aids cater for all shapes and sizes.

Enriching: Clear, clean water, fresh salty air and spectacular scenic views of mountains and ocean
makes our base in Mullaghmore one of the most inspiring and sensory environments in Europe. Due to its sheltered location the tranquil bay is perfect for your first few lessons and we guarantee small student to instructor ratios so you get personal attention and insight to the area.

Excellence: SUP DUDE is the leading Stand Up Paddle School in Ireland. It is owned and run by Emmet O’Doherty, Irish SUP Champion, one of Ireland’s Stand Up Paddle Pioneers, and fully qualified and uber experienced coach. SUP DUDE is an ‘ Irish Surfing Regiistered’ and fully insured SUP Surf School.
