Aileens Wave Ireland, nestled under the Cliffs of Moher in the heart of the Burren in the west of Ireland. Where every drop is Critical! Not for the ill prepared!
I wont pretend to know what its like to drop into a wave at Aileens nor do i every expect to experience it. I do know however that with any wave, big or small, your positioning is key. The consequences of getting this right or wrong at a wave like Aileens has a whole different meaning than your regular surfing wave. My advice would be to look, but don’t touch unless your seriously know what your doing! Here’s a selection of critical drops from a few different paddle sessions at the cliffs. Some successful, some not! Enjoy!
