Summer SUP is owned and operated by Muirti O'Cearnaigh, Muirtí set up Summer SUP School after travelling around the world seeing the potential SUP has to promote the local area. He also saw the wide variety of opportunities that SUP offers, from paddling on flat water to surfing.

Lessons are held at the tiny hamlet of Crookhaven which lies about as far down in south-west Cork as you can go without falling in to the sea. Crookhaven is tucked snugly on the sheltered side of a narrow neck of land which creates a deep inlet - the 'crooked haven' which gave the little settlement its name.
It's the very epitome of a sleepy fishing village. Brightly-coloured boats bob at anchor; pastel-coloured cottages slumber in the sunshine along the sloping street. There is also a small campsite and village shop and pub.
Crookhaven's golden sand, crystal clear water and sheltered waters are idyllic for stand up paddling whether you are a beginner or looking to increase your skills. Or you just want to take in the beautiful scenery all around.
Summer SUP also operates a school at Old Head Beach, Co. Mayo.
With Muirti's knowledge of the local waters, their passion for SUP and vast array of qualifications and experience your time with them will leave you "stoked on the sport of SUP".
