That is insane.

The scenery looks like the water off of the Cliffs of Moher, Western Coast of Ireland, near Doolin. It is a neat place, but I would never get in the ocean there. I once rode along the coast from Doolin to Galway during a storm - the wind was pushing the waves onto the the cliffs and shooting the water waaaaay high. That part of the Irish coastline actually reminded me a bit of Hawaii, just that the color of the water was all wrong and there were no palm trees.

Okay, I may have been slightly hypothermic when I originally had that thought.

I have several lads working for me in Dublin that are very much involved in the Irish surf scene. They wait for those big North Atlantic storms to roll across from Greenland and then head up to the west coast around Galway, Connemara and the like.

They tell me the water is a bit frigid.

I agree, that's Co Clare. Ireland's Biscay.

It seems like every Summer at least 1 American tourist gets blown off the cliffs there.

isnt this one of those places in the world where the ocean can get to freezing temps?

also, really cold water = big damn sharks, right?

Cool stuff.
I have a couple surf movies that have Ireland segments. I think it’s in “Thicker than Water” where the Malloy bros head over there and are surfing seriously green water under cold-ass gray skies with all the locals just warily watching.
