Freedom Surf School was founded by Billy Butler a life long surfer for over 35 years, past member of the National Irish Surfing Team and having travelled to such far off destinations as Indonesia, Australia, France and the Canary Islands Billy has never stopped chasing the waves. Billy’s past experiences of running his own surf shop & managing the local surf club, pride in his local community & the environment has led to the creation of his own surf school. Based in the family cottage by the beach where Billy was born and grew up Freedom Surf School offers an authentic outdoor experience in Tramore
Safety, customer service, qualified staff and the promotion of physical activity for life are core values of Freedom Surf School. Freedom provides organised outdoor activities that are both challenging and fun using the local outdoor environment. We endeavour to keep the free spirit of surfing and love of the Great Outdoors alive.
Freedom has incorporated its love for the Irish language within its outdoor activities and has developed Freedom Scoil Surfála 'is Ionad Gníomhaíochta Teanga. By using sport and outdoor activities to promote and teach Irish, people are finding that the Irish language can be fun and easy to learn within this environment. There is a powerful link between doing and learning therefore by experiencing an exciting outdoor activity and learning a language has proven to be a very successful learning combination.
Freedom has also been involved in teaching kids with learning disabilities to surf. As part of the national Surf2heal organisation Freedom Surf School works with kids with autism teaching them to Surf. Part of Freedom’s ideal is to bring the sport of Surfing to everyone.
