One place I keep returning to for some photography is the beach at Bunmahon, County waterford.

There is always lots going on with kite flyers and Surfers.

The waves are not be the highest in the country here as the beach is on the south coast, the best surf can be found on the west coast of Ireland( Counties, Clare and Galway for example). It is however a perfect location for beginners or locals at in the evening or at the weekends.

The following photographs are or a local surfing club surfing during the summer.

      Yes, very! You can see all the red faces in the pictures. I think they had lots of hot drinks in their van πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      It didn’t stop them going back in, after every wave though πŸ™‚
