Discription of surf spot: Donabate Strand, Ireland

The beach is about a mile long with the best surf being along the first few hundred metres to the right or south of the tower.Ideal leaning spot as waves are small but fun,so pro's dont bother comin down.Surf can be unpredictable but a good easterly wind is usually good. Clean sand beach but watch out for those rocks beside the tower.Big car park and hotel beside the beach.
