awesome balls to get where to he is let alone to be setting up for a lip bash. At least thats what his shoulder positioning suggests

Always some chat about balls when a big gnarly wave pops up in the photos. I'm taking nothing away from his balls, he has very good ones, but it's far from just being a matter of meaty balls. The amount of skill to ride a wave like this often eludes recognition...so please recognise!

That day's forecast was 5 stars. This pic makes me realize that at my skill level 2 to 3 stars is the peak, and it goes down rapidly after that. Basically, at 5 stars I may as well stay in bed.

From the images I have seen on this site over the five years or so, Ireland is one seriously under-rated surf destination! Possibly, the Irish aren't as dumb as we think for keeping it a secret. (no offense intended)

are you thicker than pig turds to say you think the irish are dumb, and then say "no offense". no offense intended of course.

but one of the worst feelings in the world is putting on a wet wetsuit in the winter, however much you tell yourself you will get wet anyway.

i keep telling the woman that you cant feel rain at the beach but she wont believe me.

The good thing about surfing in rainy countries is that one gets wet anyway, so rain is not part of the problem.

CatEmpire May 5, 2011 Rating: 7

It's no secret that Ireland gets good, but it's also no secret that it's raw, remote, cold, expensive, and has weeks of onshores and horizontal rain...all for those few days that it gets good. Is it worth it?? Hell yeah! But not everyone would agree with me.
