I’ve got this terrible habit of constantly checking the swell charts and conditions of places I have no intention of going or surfing, but it’s like an obsession I have of knowing what the surfs going to be like.
The strangest one is when I’m on a surf trip and I keep checking the waves at home, as the whole time I’m actually at home I spend most of the time checking the swell forecasts for abroad, just doesn’t make sense.
January wasn’t a good month on Ireland, far from it and we spent most of the time surfing small lefts but we did get one day where we did get a small break in the weather and managed to paddle into some solid ones and I vividly remember the surf was 2ft and clean this day at Croyde as even though we scored I still had to check the waves at home like I always do.
Sorry about the quality but it’s been taken from a video clip. We are just getting it edited, so shortly you’ll be able to see how shit January really was!
