i travelled for 2hrs today to a blown out mess, a an overpriced allday breakfast, a loss of 10quid in the slot machines (due to there nothing else to do in bundoran) and a car breakdown up in the donegal mountains quickly follwed by a 1hr hitchhike followed by a 45quid taxi.......... all for the love of the sport :)

Boogergoldy - Coldest I've known was 4.5c, warmest around 20.5c. In recent years Winters have only dropped to around 8-9c, and I guess most summers top out at about 18.5c, unless we get a really hot spell. So it is everything from 5mm, boots, mitts and balaclava to 3mm steamers, shorties or boardies. Variety is the spice....

Flipping cold to me, hardly drops below 17 where I surf. Respect to braving the cold for the love of the sport.

Sea temp 9.7c so not too bad, was a chilly day. Dicer - not sure who you are? Clint's still here and charging as ever, he's just been travelling through Indo, scored some great waves.

Sweet looking wave, obviously pretty chilly though.

Nice photo Colin! We got that swell on Saturday and it was epic, glad you and the lads managed to get some shacks! What's Clint up to?
