About the Club
WIT Surf Club was rebooted last year in September 2011 after a few years this year hoping to start back again this coming with a Bang! We use a local beach(Tramore) that is not to far from the college or Waterford City. There is also a bus on root too. Using a local surf shop (http://www.tramoresurfshop.com/ or http://www.facebook.com/tramoresurfshopandtramoresurfschool?ref=ts&fref=ts), offering surf club members once they have signed up to the college club rental for a good price of €10; this includes wetsuit,boots,gloves and hood(if wanted). The hire is normally €20 also a surf lesson is thrown in for those who are just the beginning to learn to catch the waves!
The club is open to all students, and a great way to meet new friends and have a good laugh in a good safe environment, as in the water every one looks out for each other; and that's important to be safe.
We are also very popular with Erasmus students and it's a GREAT way for those Erasmus student to meet Irish students, improve their English and also meet other Erasmus students. Most importantly is MAKING LIFE LONG FRIENDSHIPS near and far.
Also this year we are hosting the FIRST ever East Coast Surf Intervarsitys, in Tramore November 23rd - 25th 2012!
