I only like to promote things I think are cool and if I wasn’t working or running these events I would definitely go to it!! This weekend is Adventureland. That is right it is finally here and so far it has been very well organised and publicized by Outdoor NI, Northern Ireland Tourist Board and Discover NI. If you haven’t heard anything about it, where have you been??
Make sure not miss out because this is what is happening. Long Line Surf School and a whole range of activity providers have been brought together by the great Outdoor NI for weekend only being the 23rd and 24th March to help promote the great outdoor lifestyle we have to offer in Northern Ireland and we are doing this by running £10 sessions and half price deals!! This is really something you will not see that often and when someone is offering an activity which is 2 hours or longer for £10 where else would you rather be than taking part.
I know you are all thinking what is Dan putting on ? Because that is going to be the best value for money….. well!
We have four sessions running over the weekend. Same layout for both days just to make it that bit more simple.
9:30 – 12:00 FAMILY SURF SESSION
Bring the family down and enjoy a surf lesson together or maybe you just want to get the kids out enjoying something awesome for only £10. We think that the parents should get involved as well as it’s only £10 for yourself as well so why not!! It’s super fun and an awesome way to start your day.
1:00pm – 3:30pm SURF EXPERIENCE FOR ADULTS
I sometimes find that when you are trying to learn something new and kids are surfing a lot better than you then it can be quite irritating and just want to push them off ha-ha Only joking with comment by the way. Or maybe you just aren’t a family person and you are a bunch of students wanting to have an awesome time as a group then this half price lesson during the afternoon is definitely for you. Its a full session and is for all abilities. Come out, surf and have a laugh with your friends.
Would also love to put out that we are giving a free bottle of water to every customer. I know you might not think it is much but after 2.5 hours of surfing in salt water you get pretty thirsty and you will all be thanking me for it so do remember that !!
Now if you would like to book yourself in it is really simple and can be done through this these two links:

Another great thing about this weekend is that Railway has been closed now over the winter from Coleraine to Londonderry in order for it to be revamped and made even better. Now that isn’t the exciting bit. The exciting is that NI Railway service is providing free transport over the entire weekend. So if you are coming from Belfast, Londonderry or anywhere is between get you train tickets booked now and make this weekend even better value. They even have face-painters, balloon modelers and glitter tattooists on-board. I don’t care whether your a kid or not I would be well up for that!!
Check out all the train time and how to book right here:
As a little bit of history check out this photo which was given to me by a close friend who was rummaging through the attic and came across this. If you can’t tell where it is I will let you in for a little secret. It the entrance to Downhill beach in the early 1920’s. Nearly a hundred years on from this photo and not much has changed. It’s awesome when you can look back at your local history and find an awesome photo like this!!
So guys its going to be an awesome weekend for the North Coast. If you are looking for other activities to do after your surfing check out the full list. There is over a hundred sessions running throughout the country over the weekend so take FULL advantage
