Dec-Jan is that mid winter?
Can you surf/ do people surf that time of year?
Where is a good spot?
I am from SA and looking for a surf holiday during my 3 weeks of in Dec-Jan.
I have always wanted to see Ireland.

alright, i had some good surfing in jan this year in rosnowlagh, donegal - long board stuff. get some decent swells around december/january - just depends on the wind really.......  few beaches around bundoran, each one suited to different tides so check that out before you head out.

Try the Dingle Peninsula down in county kerry (SW Ireland) - there's plenty of different options for wind/swell direction -you'll need a 5/3 wetsuit with hood & booties. Waves should be pretty consistent that time of year. You could fly Ryanair to Shannon or Farranfore - Dingle is about 1-2 hours drive from there...ENJOY!
