Ireland’s Off Shore Winds

“An amazing untouched beach in Doonbeg, Co Clare, Ireland”

Latest edit from Top Irish Kite Surfer Alan Kavanagh.

“A place I can only describe as my back garden.
Sept/Oct brings off shore winds but rare. Only local surfers would know of its potential in off shore winds.
The odd few kiters would go here in on shore winds.
I have still to meet another kiter here in off shore winds!!”

So when the right conditions arise the bay transforms into a mist of back spray from the lips at Turf Reef. An amazing view. It mainly spits out a breaking left. Judging this wave can be a little tricky but its all about patients in these conditions..
