Welcome to Tramore Surf School
Tramore Surf School is based on the beach (opposite the lifeguard’s hut on Tramore promenade) in Tramore, County Waterford in the sunny south east of Ireland. We offer a fun, friendly and safe environment to experience the addictive thrill of surfing.
Our team of surf-crazy instructors will guide you every step of the way to becoming the next surf champion! We welcome every expertise level from groms to grannies; no matter what age, experience level or size you are we’ll get you catching waves in no time. Our surf dudes and dudettes are fully qualified and fully stoked to make the thrill of surfing easy for you.
We offer both private and public lessons; so for those of you shy to showing off your skills just yet you can have one-to-one surf lessons. We cater for family surf experiences, adult surf groups, teen surf hang-outs, kids’ camps, school tours and of course the groms too! Surfing is a great way of meeting new people, getting confident in your own body and having fun in the water. Our surf instructors are friendly, laidback and adapt to suit your needs and experience levels.

Tramore Surf School was established by Bernadette Butler in 2009. The Surf School was added to the already successful Tramore Surf Shop in a bid to provide surfers with all their needs under one roof.
The main motive in setting up the Surf School for Bernadette was to help introduce new people to the exhilarating sport in a safe and friendly environment.
