The guys at Oceanic are just super. My daughter has had a total blast with them. She has now done a week and I would bring her back for off season weekends as she loves being there. And she is so aware of safety and has taught me the surfing hand signals already. The staff have all been great and... More

I can't thank everyone at Oceanics for 3 days of fun for my 6 & 8 year old kids. They are not used to being in the sea and loved every minute of it. Hope to be back next summer!

Arrived into the surf school at five to 6 in the evening with a group of 12 looking to head out onto the waves and the staff could not have been more helpful. Within two minutes we were sorted out and were able to go ahead with our surfing. Jai was our instructor... More

A fantastic activity we had never tried before. A great adventure clambering along the cliffs and leaping into the sea. Our leaders - Lochy and Dylan - did a good job of the safety brief before we set out and in demonstrating how we should move along the shore and enter the water from the varying heights available to try....

I booked this for my 2 nephews (14 &15) they had a great instructor who really gave them all him attention and encouragement. They had 2 hours and 1 1/2 hours in the water. The wave are small in tramore but ideal for someone with little experience well worth the price.

I can't recommend Oceanics Surf School enough! We had a small group of Spanish 12-14 year-old students in Tramore for two weeks and they organised a summer surf camp for them. Not only did the girls learn the basics of surfing and have bundles of fun but the staff were incredibly supportive and encouraging of them and at no point... More

We went on a surfing day out through a groupon offer but I reckon if we had just gone through the school I would be just as happy. The service was excellent, the equipment was perfect for us beginners and the instruction was really great. We were 2 in a group of 5 and all 5 of us surfed together... More
