Surfdock is a terrific facility. I did a two hour SUP intro lesson and was delighted with the experience. Having only done SUP randomly while on holidays in the past, it was really useful to get some proper instruction. I highly recommend Surfdock and the guys down there are really sound.

I was in Dublin and ended up needed a wakeboard handle at short notice. I purchased a fantastic handle from the SurfDock show and explained my situation. Colin replied and arranged for the handle to be hand delivered to my hotel (as I couldn't make it into the shop within office hours. Amazing customer service! I will definitely be a... More

I organised a trip to SurfDock for Stand Up Paddleboarding as part of a team event with my work. 8 of us went, none of us had any SUP experience previously so we were a little nervous about it! James was our instructor and he was excellent, he put us all at ease and ran through the basics before we... More

Our teenagers had a lot of fun. They enjoyed all the activities and were sorry that it was just a week. It was well organised and the staff did a great job. Thank you!

Great staff. I didn't do a sport but watched my child participating and staff were really inclusive to all - beginners & experts alike. Adult beginners were out on water and were being encouraged and instructed really well and very kindly. Made me think about trying out one of the water sports on offer myself!

I was visiting Dublin from New Zealand for a family reunion. Being a stand up paddler I had looked on trip adviser and found Surfdock. I hired a board late one sunny afternoon and paddled the canal for an hour. Great way to see that part of the city! Colin and his wife were personable, really helpful and their operation... More

Wonderful water adventures in Dublin docklands! We were a group of 11, split in two groups, and tried both wakeboarding and paddle boarding (including 5 of us on a monster paddle board which was great fun). Such a good start to the day. Thanks to Nina and all at Wakedock for really taking care of us and making it such... More

Had a great time with my 8 year old daughter on an introductory SUP session down in Surfdock at the weekend. It's a very family friendly environment and our instructor Keith made us all feel very safe and confident as we headed out across the dock and even up the canal for a short trip. Highly recommended for kids and... More
