Looks like there's snow on the land, and he's not wearing gloves or a hood......That's hardcore or nuts!

It's not localism you need to worry about in ireland it's the visitors, the craic messes their heads and the cold shrivels their 'nads and they paddle out with an attitude that would grace Kirra or Huntington beach!

May the Guinness waves be curling around your back and the road rise up to meet you. May they invent a waterproof cigarette so the whole of Ireland can surf together.

dont make the mistake of judging by photos alone. I am sure there is just more photographers.

Thats a good shot. Tight as it gets and Squirls right, there is much to learn from that guys body shape, calmness and posture. Good stuff.

Brohan....el ray....pay close attention. Because, that is how you are supposed to look when you get in a barrel.

This spot's a bit like Mundaka, you jump off the rocks and approach the line-up from out the back and when it's good it's a long dry barrel so he could easily still have dry hair, the guinness in the water gives the location away to those who know! Nice shot
