It’s on its way. The evenings and mornings are getting darker. There is a noticeable chill in the air and soon the morning routine will have to include boiling the kettle to defrost the car. Gone are the summer bbq’s, the pint bottles of bulmers, stupid tag rugby and the annoying holiday goers cluttering up every seaside village and town around the coast. It’s going to be very wet, very cold very windy and very dark but by god it’s going to be fantastic.

I wouldn’t have it any other way!

So it’s time get back to going through the charts hour by hour and the million different wind forecasting sites. Surf trips will now need more of a military like precision and yes we shall all continue to get a shafting more often than not but hey we don’t care cause this is surfing in Ireland and we love it!

Here’s Shane O’Connor getting his first one of the season yesterday. It was about as mellow as it gets but still the odd nice one.
