Transition year Surfing

TY students had a great day surfing in Tramore.
Transition year Surfing

On Tuesday the 11th of September, we all went surfing in Tramore. Everyone was excited when we got on the two buses at 9 a.m. with Ms. Pickering, Ms. Rochford, Ms. Troy and Ms. Curran. A lot of us hadn't been surfing before and we couldn't wait to try it out. When we arrived in Tramore we went to the surf school where we were split into two groups. My group got to go surfing first. The instructor gave us a safety brief and handed us our wetsuits. He then gave each pair two boards to carry down to the beach. When we got to the beach, he gave us a demonstration on the sand before letting us in the water. The water was absolutely freezing at first and the waves were so strong they were knocking us backwards. It was extremely difficult to stand up on the board but it was hilarious to watch everyone try. The board moved a lot faster in the water than most of us anticipated so there was lots of falling and splashing. Some of the girls were experts though and avoided swallowing half the water. It was such an adrenaline rush when you got a big wave but it was nearly more fun having a laugh with the girls about how terrible we all were. We were extremely sad when our time surfing finished. After a serious struggle out of the wetsuits and lunch, we got to go on the beach walk with Glenn and he told us all about the beach wildlife and brought us up on the sand dunes. It was a great opportunity to chat with all the girls and really interesting to learn about the beach and the history with pirates. The day had gone in a flash and soon we were all on the bus heading home again. It was a great day and a good way to get our mind off the next day when we would be getting our Junior Certificate results!!!!
