Big wave surfer Al Mennie finds surfing Ireland a totally exhilarating experience!
Once the first rush of cold is over, it makes little difference whether you’re in Hawaii or Machrihanish. Ireland has some of the best surf conditions in Europe. For many surfers based in the UK and Ireland, the 5mm neoprene wetsuit has probably been the greatest surfing invention ever created and those wanting surfing holidays in Ireland had better bring one with them.
In a bid to promote Ireland as one of the world’s premier surf sports, we teamed up with Big Wave Surfer, Al Mennie on his quest for the perfect wave.
Mennie, part of the team that surfed the largest wave in history last year in Portugal, has nothing but praise for the surf conditions in Ireland. We provided the world-class surfer with one of our top of the line ‘Ranger’ campervans, to aid him in his ongoing pursuit to surf the worlds’ best waves.
