On Sunday we hit the road to Cross Strand in Mayo for a Surfdock / DMG Surf Safari. The idea of the Safari (this one titled FUNDAY SUNDAY) was to get everyone together, whether experienced or new to wave-sailing, and have a fun day exploring the west coast with like minded people. Along the way, we would provide some coaching, tips or demo gear if needed, but mostly it's just an excuse to get together and have some fun.
The highlight for me was while catching a wave back upwind, I glanced down and spotted 2 dolphins surfing inside the same wave directly below my board. Absolutely beautiful!
This has happened to me once before, but that was in South Africa, where I almost instantly s**t myself, as if you see large black fish under your board.. it usually means the angry type :-/
It was a great day for all - really cool to see so many friends having fun.... nobody could stop smiling. Also we got a few people out for their first west coast wave-riding sessions, and this coming week is looking great for wind and waves for the whole coast. Watch this space....
