Hello everybody!
I'm thinking about going to Dublin for a few days in february (maybe 14. - 19.). I didn't have the chance to go surfing in a while, so would be great, if I could catch some waves in Ireland!
Do you think it's worth bringing my board (would fly with ryan air, board transport costs 50 €)? Or can I rent 1 somewhere? If so, does anyone know the prices?
So far I've only got a 3/2 full suit + booties, suppose that's not enough for Ireland in Winter... Any options where I could rent a wet suit? Any idea how much it is?
Anyone who plans to go surfing that weekend and would like to join me?
I read about the option of taking a bus to ballyshanon/bundoran... Does anyone know how much that is?
Ok, hope to see you out there!

Hi there,

I live in Dublin as well, I'm from Argentina and I'm planning to go to Sligo/Donegal almost every wekend if possible.

I have a car, but i share it with my girlfriend so I'm looking for an easy going and relaxed surfing buddy to share journey costs and with a car (for those weekends when I'm not going 2 have my one).

Anyway, send me an email if u r interested.

Take it easy,

Hey everybody,

I'm an ex avid surfer. Moved to dublin last year and due to loads of different circumstances i havnt been able to surf for over a year - i may have forgotten how!:)
Have a car and the will to freeze in the open ocean but i lack the friends with as much free time as i have to go.Dont like to surf alone due to a previous encounter with a seriously giant seal of some sort.....Anybody who has a regular group going and doesnt mind a quiet tag along give me a shout on my email!
Thankyou in advance - really sound!
