“My footage “4 leaf clover’ is from a trip to Ireland in October 2016 with Damon Beveridge of SurfdevelopmentUK. I have surfed in Portugal, The Azores, Morocco, France, Around the UK (Scarborough, Devon & Cornwall) & Scotland but Ireland is so far, definitely one of my favorite places to have surfed.”
