About Bundoran Surf Co.
Bundoran Surf Co is a surf school, surf lodge and surf shop located in Bundoran, Co. Donegal, the surf capital of Ireland. Bundoran Surf Co. was set up by Pete Craig and Aidan Browne in March 2005. Between Pete, Aidan and the rest of the team you can be sure to get the best surfing tuition and information year round. Since setting up we have taught surfing to lots of people through our regular surf lessons and Surf Academy, as well as teaching local kids in our After School Surf Club. We have also had lots of happy guests in the Lodge, and loads of people through the shop.
Pete has been surfing from a young age on the northwest coast and is well known in Irish surfing circles for taking on heavy waves and deep barrels. He has explored many waves on the west and north coasts of Ireland. He is from Derry originally, but has been living in Bundoran for 10 years. Pete is an ISA Level 2 certified instructor and has done a lot of coaching with all levels of surfers, young and old. It is hard to get him to work if the waves are pumping. Favourite board is a DHD 6’5″.
Aidan has been surfing for ten years and is from Bundoran. He is happiest surfing the reefs around Bundoran and the NW coast, and is a keen kite surfer when the strong onshores kick in. Aidan is also Level 2 ISA qualified and is usually working in the shop, teaching lessons, or stuck in the office. Favourite board is a Simon Anderson 6’4″.
Alan Mc Loughlin is originally from Co. Meath and caught the surfing bug at Tullan strand in Bundoran back in 2004. After a year of being a weekend warrior and driving the N4 twice a week he decided to quit his job and become a full time travelling surfer. This lead to 4 years on the road in Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, USA, South and Central America. Alan is currently riding a 5’10 Kronig board from Brazil and is still trying to come to terms with how good the waves are in Ireland after sampling some of the top surf breaks around the world.
Andrea is the Bundoran Surf Co retail and fashion expert. Andrea loves surfing her 7’4’ at Bundoran’s quiet beaches.
