If adventure is what you are after, surfing and kitesurfing might just be the sports for you. With great waves and lots of beaches Ireland offers some of the best surfing and kitesurfing in Europe. Remember though, you can experience the thrills of the surf without taking risks.
From beginners to experienced users, we all need to respect the water and others. Before taking out your board be aware of the associated dangers on the water. Many schools provide lessons and will give practical demonstrations.
There is some basic etiquette you can follow which will make your life and those of others easy. The surfer closest to the peak has priority and you should never ‘drop in’ on anybody else. To avoid collision, paddle for white water or paddle wide on the shoulder.
