Hydro Speeding

Experience the thrill of white water rapids as you surf the swells downstream on a personal ‘floating toboggan’, much like a beefed-up bodyboard. Ride your board downstream as you bounce over rocks and perform spins.

This is an adventurous activity which promises lots of fun and is very rewarding too. The rapids are enhanced as you guide yourself downstream on your own ‘floating toboggan’ with an instructor close by to guide you along. You will learn moves like 360 spins and how to ride the swells and eddies.
  • Fun and exhilarating!
  • Run time: half a day
  • For age 12 yrs+
Other Facts
  • Sessions from €35
  • Book in resort with Active Reps

Exhilarating fun!

Hydro Speeding is a half-day excursion and you will descend the rapids in a small group led by an instructor guiding you down. With a little practice, ‘Speeders can learn to surf the swells and eddies, ride the rocks and even perform 360-degree spins! Pilot your floating toboggan down the white water rapids and hit the swirls and eddies on your way down. Great fun!

More about Hydro speeding

It’s great for all ages 12+ and offers a thrilling day out, run by a very professional, local rafting centre 

You’ll kick off with a safety briefing and an introduction to the equipment and how to use it, with some paddle techniques and riding tips. After changing into double thickness wetsuits, helmets and flippers, grab your board and you’re ready to go!

Your guide will lead you down the rapids using the rocks and swells to heighten the sensation and every so often the party of Speeders’ will stop for a break in a calm patch of water to regroup and rest.
