EXPLORING NEW BEACHES AND BREAKS

After years of eyeing photos of firing conditions in Ireland, Dieter Van der Eyken decided to go on an adventure to explore the best spots himself.

Here is his story of the trip including an action-filled video.

In Dieters’ own words

Ireland has been on my to-do list for many years and with the cancelation of the world cup in Sylt, the perfect window opened up to take the boat and explore new beaches with the van.

It wasn’t the most successful trip in terms of conditions but there were a few golden sessions. I’m happy to have met some windsurfing friends on the way who helped me to capture some of the moments on tape to produce this short clip. 

The footage is filmed on Fanore beach (side offshore in SE) near Galway and Magheraroartyin, the NW of Ireland (West South West winds) also known for the Redbull Stormchase. It’s a shame both spots only worked once during the trip making it a bit harder to figure out the wave and the tides, but being able to sail side off conditions nearly every day on different spots around made it a trip to remember! 

I will definitely be back and hope to sail a few other spots that are still on my bucket list!

Thanks to Severne Windsurfing for the continuing support and now looking forward to sharing some more content here on Tenerife soon
