The majority of so called scenarios or nightmares I’ve found myself in throughout my life have been in some way or another self inflicted, sometimes you just have to take a step back and look at things and say ‘how on earth did this happen?’ or ‘at what point could I have avoided this?’ This is exactly what was running through my head when I awoke this morning, 3 days into a solo mission camping in Ireland.
Suffering from sleep deprivation and a mild hypothermia and after Scrapping the ice off the inside of the van windscreen before doing the same to the outside I realised It was OK though as I was getting just what i came for and was greeted with perfect 2 ft onshore dribble, not a sole around to witness my despair and screams for help and sanity except a couple of cows in a nearby field I put on my freezing cold, damp wetsuit and went nuts, Then I went for a little surf.
Can’t wait for tonight and tomorrow..............

Al and Cotty have been invited to compete at The World Tow In Championships in Hawaii in the coming weeks. This is the second year running that the duo have been the only European invitees to the prestigious event. Al and Andrew ranked 10th in The World at the World Tow in Championship, 2008, held in Chile and hope to better their world ranking with a solid performance in Hawaii this season. The event will run on one day between now and March 31st whenever the biggest swells hit the shores of Maui. The 24 teams from around the globe will be given 48 hours notice to be in Maui ready to compete. This winter season has seen some of the biggest waves ever ridden at various places across the globe. In fact a huge series of swells are due for the west coast of Ireland and Hawaii in the coming days.
