Lifeguard Summer in Dublin

Nobody told us we would have east coast surf in July.

 Despite a rather autumnal feel all 5 new boards got wet along the with SUP, pboards and ski. A beautiful colour display against a solid grey backdrop.

With all the rain best to stay out of the water for a couple of days. We'll have a break over the bank holiday so no bank holoday Sunday training session.

So here's the treat we promised you. ......... Keep your eyes peeled and you'll see more than a few familiar faces.

Big shout out to all the crew abroad at the moment. Hope summer weather is being kinder to you all.

Have a great bank holiday

Swim time Sunday . 630

Beach 6:30 Sunday on an evening tide

Beach info to make you look like a pro.....

park smart      - be considerate, leave your car at the harbour,

park crazy      - keep emergency access / public slipway clear

wrapped         - it is really hard to regulate body temperature in a wetsuit on land - if a swimmer is dropped & collected in a wetsuit ..... pack towel/sweat/hat (in case they get cold),  water/tshirt
(in case they get hot) and footwear suitable for the street, regardless be really careful, remember most seasons we have a swim or two where we stay dry; might be for water quality, jellyfish, pizza

we go           - when everyone is changed & gear is "racked 'n packed" , be on time or early for pick ups,

know the lingo #1
a. the soft ones are 'torps', the hard ones are 'cans'
b. de-sand; sand is very abrasive  and the enemy of good gear so we dont pack sand with kit, we 'de-sand' it

And finally do we have a great film for you when we can figure out how to embed you tube from a mobile. Will publish later!
