That second shot especially looks sooo nice. Lovely colour to the water, and a superb left just walling up.

ya easkey has a right and the peak is a lefty and a right. those are some quality waves, but you dont get em very often here in eire, not as clean as them anyway. surfing in ireland is all about patience.
Placebos make me feel all fuzy inside....... HOLLY SHIT A PURPLE ELEPHANT!!!!!
