In 2017 Storm Ophelia made landfall in Ireland, creating havoc around the country and some unprecedented surf up and down the East coast.

Eoin Deering has been searching and finding waves up and down this side of the country for years, and Ophelia was a chance to score easily the best waves ever seen on the “wrong” coast.

Luckily Freddie Browne was in tow, and the pair have produced this brilliant edit from a few epic days in the East.

Beautifully shot and edited 3 part series about surfing and surf culture in Ireland, made by Mikey Corker.

Episode 01 “The Torchbearers” covers the pioneers of Irish surfing from Barry Britton to Fergal Smith. Episode 02 “The Nutjobs” features the select few who chase our big waves, including Conor Maguire, Peter Conroy, Dylan Stott and others. The final episode “The Misfits” tells the story of surfers who planned to pass through, but are still here, including Barry Mottershead and Noah Lane. All 3 are below:

Proximity

Released last year, you could do much much worse than watching Taylor Steele's Proximity. Even if just for that wave with Stephanie Gilmore and Dave Rastovich alone...

The annual Wavemaker Collective retreat took place last month in Ericeira, Portugal. We were super happy to supply a custom batch of wax for the participants. Massive thanks to Easkey Britton for asking us to be involved. Here's some more about the event:

WHERE SOCIAL INNOVATION & CREATIVITY MEET THE SEA

A global gathering of 16 leaders, founders, wave-makers and seekers from around the world.

We’re really curious about what it takes to make waves, what it means to be a good leader and how to do good better. We love to explore how we might build a global community of exceptional, passionate wave-makers who inspire and empower each other to create a more beautiful world.

Using surfing as an immersive and experiential journey, we explore how to make waves of change at the World Surfing Reserve in Ericeira, Portugal in May 2018.

What a difference a few seconds in a swells period makes. This spot lit up over the 2 days of this swell.
