    Any photogs out there fancy doing the micky smith thing and documenting some big irish waves? although I've applied to uni I've spent to much time in the sea and not enough with my head in books, so I've got some cash saved up and I'm wondering if anyone else fancies tackling big Ireland, it seems mig smith is the only one on it atm. after a few guiness' it seems like a perfeectly rational idea, anyone game?

    hey, ireland's a good call. went there in january for 2 weeks this year and was pretty hectic with maxing swells and galeforce wes'erly winds all the time, still found some great spots though, so amazing to surf a remote spot all day then go to a wee country pub for some real guinness and have some craic with the locals!

    would be super keen to go again when it;s more settled (and warm!), loads of little slabs that suck up a lot of swell i reckon so no need to wait for a 5* chart..would happily split hire car/petrol costs with ya if ya need a travel buddy!

    Plymouth Uni accepted me. so that's kind of scuppered my hopes of getting away to Ireland. :(

    I'll still be heading out there though, just not for as long.

    Me and Eldred are going out there for a few days (conditions permitting) sometime in the first two weeks of October. Bellyboarder is still contemplating coming with us I think. Maybe I'll horizontally flip the image above in photoshop so it looks like a right hander, instead of a left. That just might help convince him. Sick photo btw.

    much as i'd like to claim it, found that shot on magicseaweed!..but you can drive down any random lane on the west coast when there's no wind and find something similar!!
