East coast surf

I am a surfer recently moved from west donegal to dundalk - does the east coast get any decent waves around the dundalk/louth area? and if so what direction of swell works?

RE: East coast surf

halo jack. in reply to your question on global surfers.com there is absolutely nothing in dundalk surfing wise because their's less than a 60 mile fetch on the coast.the nearest beach surfable to you is tramore in waterford which goes off about five times a year so your best bet is to head west as much as possible on weekends.

You may get something in a large sorthwesterly storm. It'll be blown out and on/crossshore but good for a laugh

Killiney Beach can be good sometimes but it is very hard to get there just at the right time.

was on Killiney last weekend, seems to be best waves on half flood when the wind is right

RE: East coast surf

the nearest is probably the north, however being a re located surfer from donegal aswell I have found a few good breaks around Wicklow town and the surounding area south of the town... however the community of surfers is small they are decicated if you get talking to a few locals they ll point you in the right direction.
but I should warn you the breaks are less than inspiring compared to are local breaks and tend to need a good swell without the wind bashing the hell out of them.
