Where to surf in August....

« on: March 18 2009 11:03:00 »

Ok Irish surfers...gonna take a trip there in August. Gonna surf 1-2 days.  I'm a "well-behaved" So Cal local w/ 30 years experience and can hold my own..will not drop-in, burn, hack, etc. anyone. Just want to say I caught a wave in my ancestorial homeland and dump my father's ashes. I'll bring a 4/3, booties and hood. A T'shirts for help ( I'm a lifeguard for the Imperial Beach lifeguard service and we like to bonus out the bro's) Might even bring a shortboard and give it too a helpful surfer who shows me a line-up....Anyway, any recommendations would be great.
Thanks

As already said, you won need a hood, or gloves for that matter. In a 4-3 you'll be cosy.

As already mentioned you will be lucky to get good surf. Summer can produce flat spells or just not good waves but i hope for you luck is on your side. It would not be impossible for you to score some sick waves, last august they were towing in at Aileens so all you need is a bit of luck and you could get good conditions.
When you get here id chech the forecast and go to wherever is best. If you are travelling from Dublin it will only take you 2-4 hours to hit most spots on the west coast although some can be even further away.
I hope you get something
