Since its establishment in 1998 as the first dedicated surf school in county Mayo, SURFMAYO has sustained its reputation as one of Ireland’s leading surf schools for over two decades. In summer 2018, local surfer Charles O’ Malley took on the SURFMAYO business and is now running it with his colleague Elvis Beetham, who has been an integral part of the SURFMAYO team since he moved to Louisburgh in 2007.
As an ISA approved surf school, SURFMAYO caters for all ages and abilities in surfing. We have some of Ireland’s finest surf coaches, all of whom are fully trained lifeguards and highly experienced, passionate surfers.
Whether you are a complete beginner, improver or advanced surfer, we offer professional surf coaching and equipment to suit your needs. We also offer sessions for groups, families, friends, school tours, sports clubs, stags and hens, any age; you are all welcome to taste the ultimate surfing experience on the beautiful West coast of Ireland.
Our surf school is open 7 days a week, 12 months of the year, surf conditions permitting (except for Christmas week). We are set up along the Wild Atlantic Way at Carrowniskey Strand, Louisburgh, Co. Mayo.
