Surfing around Cork in June

« on: April 03 2013 19:04:00 »

Hi, my wife and I are planing a short surf trip around the Cork area in June (coming from Sunshine Coast Australia). I was wondering what sort of wetsuit you can get away with at that time of year? And also if its easy to sell boards in Ireland? Thanks for any advice, Tim.

I don't have an answer for you, but am interested in the same topic. Is there any surfboard hire available from cork that you know of? Sounds like you will be selling your board after you leave - where are you getting it from and costs etc? We will be travelling there in early July.

3/4 wetsuit fine in summer..
selling boards should be possible,,, lot of people going elsewhere for work so maybe a lot of boards being sold... put an ad up to sell them on a irish surf forum early in your trip..
.. Don't know if it's a option but might be a good idea to be flexible on which part of the country you take your surf trip, weather might mean mean Corks' good, or Kerry or Clare or even on up to Sligo/Donegal... not too long a drive too any of them..

Thanks very much for the advice, I am going to hire a car I am hoping to get from Cork up towards Galway surfing as much as possible. I am going to bring a Super Toy (5'10x19x2.25) and will just try and sell it when leaving cork or swap it for beer, its in good condition but happy to just offload it for cheap to someone who needs a board. Cheers.
