Is Aileen Europe’s Best Wave?

Aileens is Ireland and indeed Europe’s answer to mavericks. Aileens is the closest thing to a perfect wave and it happens to be just off the famous Cliffs of Moher in the west of Ireland. Named after the local headland known as Aill Na Searrach (Irish for cliff of foals) it has been the feature of several movies here in Ireland.

Although not to be tested without a huge amount of surf experience and usually with the help of a jetski for tow the wave if a formidable one. At certain times of year it is known to get up to over 50 feet and has attracted surfers from all around the world. Ireland is now becoming known as a cold water paradise and Aileens is a wave that can help put Ireland on the surf map. For more info about Aileens check out surfing atlas.

In other news I picked up a waterproof iPhone camera for my refurbished iphone which I got off an Irish site www.applerefurbs.ie so I suggest for anyone who wants to take pics out on the water to pick one up from them! Till next week!
