Surf Advice for July

« on: June 15 2009 18:06:00 »

I will be going Dublin, Ireland July 10 for a few weeks (I know it's the worst time for swell, but it's for a family function). Of course I will be checking the charts and swell forecasts and will try to do my best to get some good waves, traveling all around isn't a problem, but I'd like to get some general advice and even possibly try to meet a few local surfers that are stoked on surfing to surf with while I am there. I'll be traveling solo, so any help would be appreciated, and my family commitments are only a few days of that time, and of course those days depend on the swell forecast, so I am pretty open. FYI, I love barrels, so if there is swell, I am open to good slabs or reefs. Here is a link to some photos of me surfing on an indo trip.

Thanks! Stephen.

Thanks Paul, I don't plan on staying in Dublin, so I guess the biggest question was either SW or NW, with SW looking like the best option as far as that time of year for consistancy, but even if the NW is not as good, I heard the waves are better up there, so I am not sure. I'd rather surf a half meter wave with form and push than a meter wave that is gutless. Plus, I won't be surfing the WHOLE time, so I'd like factor in where there is a good scene and people as well. Thanks for any more suggestions you may have.
