As you can probably see from my blog I am interested in surfing, I used to surf frequently before I started my masters. Have not been in the water since last August as I have had to sacrifice a lot of things I enjoy to do this course, but looking forward to getting back in the water this summer. So I decided to compile a list of my top 10 surf spots in Ireland. I have also surfed abroad in California, South Carolina and South West of France (All Photos from Google images)
1. Easkey Left (Sligo)
Left breaking over flat rocks, can surf at any tide
2. The Peak (Bundoran)
Flat rock, best surfed at low tide, short rights, longer lefts.
3. Tullan Strand (Donegal)
Beach Break , very consistent picks up the swell when other places don’t.
4. Carrowniskey (Mayo)( Surf here a lot)
Beach Break, needs a west swell to work
5. Rossnowlagh (Donegal)
6. Lahinch (Clare)
Beach and reef
7. Mossies (Kerry)
8. Inch Reef (Kerry)
9. Strandhill (Sligo)
