MEET THE TEAM

Kate said “no” to a city life and followed her surfing dreams to Bundoran, which is great because we needed to get more women surfing. When she’s not surfing she’s knitting, stitching or making and doing. If you have a make n’ do project Kate’s your woman!

Favourite thing about Bundoran: "Evening surfs as the days are getting longer
The wide availability of, and uses for duct tape, A good stand at the lodge window & the 50c bags of teeth sweets from the American house."

Cork Joe (yes he’s from that other centre of the universe) is great surfer and a formidable man on a SUP. A well-travelled man he always returns, unable to pull himself away from the reefs and beaches of Bundy.

Favourite thing about Bundoran: "northern monkeys, i had never seen them with such great numbers in the wild. The coastline and all the waves along it brought me to bundoran but its the people and the craic that keeps me from leaving."

Laoise's brilliant! We've yet to see her without a smile on her face. A very skilled lifeguard, and excellent instructor, you'll always be in safe hands when she's around. Coming from Rossnowlagh, it's no surprise she's a water baby with an abundance of charm.

Is he Irish... is he Australian... we may never really know! but we do know one thing, he's great! Dave radiates a lovely sense of calm about the day to day proceedings in the lodge. Working with us as a surf instructor while studying marine biology. With a voice like his, we think he may well be the next David Attenborough.

Charlie (the one on the right) is one of our longest standing staff members. Rumour has it, he single handedly replaced the roof on the lodge, while he was here on work experience. He's moved away from roofing now, and when he's not away in college, he is the king of our kids camps, hosts our BBQ's and parties, and generally just adds a certain flair to all proceedings. He may have the best head of hair in Bundoran, Killian's so in awe of it, he even voluntarily carried hair gel all the way over to Innismurray in a kayak for him!

Favourite thing about Bundoran:


Eva

Eva is a constant of sanity and calm when all around her may be going a bit crazy about some great swell approaching. Eva has seen it all, being one of our longest standing employees. Hailing from Poland she has tried to teach various staff members her native tongue – with varied results! (Eva wouldn't let us take her photo but we'll convince her yet!)

Favourite thing about Bundoran: "walking on Rougey when it is sunny and warm"

Another ex-“Child Slave” / part time model, Christopher is as local as they come. No task is ever too big or too small for this man. When not working in the lodge, you're most likely to find him out surfing, or cruising about town with Una, his trusty unicorn companion.

Favourite thing about Bundoran: Having a big day out with Barry Leyden, and of course Una the unicorn

 


Keith

Keith is one of the newest members to the team, so still somewhat of an enigma. A man of few words, but much skill. He's as capable taking out our kayak trips, as he is teaching surf lessons, and by the looks of his picture, not too bad on the old cliff jumps either! So a great all rounder, and addition to the team. We're looking forward to learning more, or maybe we should just enjoy the mystery that surrounds him...

Favourite thing about Bundoran:

 


Dan surf instructor at TurfnSurfDan

Dan's outstanding feature is that he is taller than Killian, which has been difficult for Killian to come to terms with.  Dan hails from Mayo and despite living inland was just drawn to the ocean and all things watery.  He's a great surf instructor although we think Kate's fish photo is better!

Favourite thing about Bundoran: "It's not Mayo"

Despite coming from the garden county Sean is a great gardener but he’s very handy with both a surfboard and a drill. Sean is a surf instructor who can also drive big things and reverse trailers. A skill lauded my many in TNS.

Favourite thing about Bundoran: "Being a part of the ever growing and amazing TurfnSurf family which is based in this idyllic corner of our beautiful emerald isle, perfect for outdoor adventure! Always something fun to do and great people to do it with!!" (we don't believe this!)

Otherwise known as 'Instructor Dread', he has the best bum on the beach. He's the ray of sunshine about the lodge, and you've not lived until you've had a 30 sec hug from this man. Most likely to be found in his natural habitat of the TurfnSurf Bus, or lurking in the kitchen suspiciously close to the biscuit cupboard.

Favourite thing about Bundoran: Surfing......... Duh!!!

Nathan

Our current child-slave has really carved out a niche for himself. Originally called “Not Dillon” since he would never live up to the impeccable standards of Dillon when he was a child slave; Nathan has quietly won us over. You can see him skating to or from Tullan on a message for Killian.

Favourite thing about Bundoran: "My one thing would have to be skating on Rougey walk on a summer evening!"
 


Rosa

Hailing from Wigan, she arrived to us last October, and is arguably our most enthusiastic surf instructor. She oozes expertise and encouragement, and seems most at home, expertly coasteering wherever rocks meet water, or gliding effortlessly past on her beloved longboard.   When we find out where she gets all her energy, we're going to bottle it, and sell it for the BIG bucks!

Favourite thing about Bundoran:

 


Barry

Blink and you'll miss him. He tells us he's from Keadue, which he proudly states was Ireland's tidiest town in 1993 and 2003. This doesn't surprise us as he may be one of our tidiest staff members. You can take the man out of Keadue...Whether it's running, skating, surfing or just hanging out of things, he's never standing still for too long!

Favourite thing about Bundoran: John O'Doherty, Waterworld and Arantxa Lopez
