How's it going Boys and Girls?

Welcomes to the surf club are due, so welcome.

Straight up im not sure how this is going to work, first time doing this but happy to give it a crack ans see what happens.

I'm not even sure where this message is going to come up or if it goes out in an email, so bear with us and let us know if it does please.

So as you might be aware the west of Ireland has some amazing surf spots, some only a few hours a way and some even closer than that. One of the closest and that seems to be most consistent is called Carrowniskey, about an hour away in Mayo, there is also a surf school there so I'm sure we will hit that spot soon enough. Bundoran is about two and half hurs away and has some really nice waves as well, i think that would be more fun to plan a trip there and spend the night up there.

Now, with this virus still going around and the way the country as been locked down (ish) again for the coming weeks I think trips and booking/renting through schools is off the cards for the moment uinfortunatley. 

I'm not sure how the stance is on travelling between Counties at the moment, but for those who have wheels and their own boards, if the wind holds up there might be some small but fun waves in Carrowniskey wednesday/thursday moring (Pending intercounty travel permissions).

These are a couple of websites that can be used to look at charts and surfspots for those that are interested, Magicseaweed is very simple and quite easy to use; windguru goes into a but more depth and can be a lot of informatin for the untrained eye.

https://es.magicseaweed.com/Carrowniskey-Surf-Report/986/

https://www.windguru.cz/47732

Both have quite a large database as well so cover a lot of breaks and beaches.

So basically hello everyone and once these few weeks pass and hopefully everything clears up again we will look at getting some boards and lessons up in Carrowniskey for those that are keen.

Take it easy :)
