Bundoran "The Peak"

Bundoran is without question the centre for surfing in Ireland, and its supported by natures gift of this wave. World famous and when its pumping it is awesome. Great A frame reef break, I reckon we all know about it by know, probably the most written about wave in Ireland. Has a huge local crew who know this place inside out, please remember to adhere to a little etiquette, over the years its got busier and busier, so unless your up to it don t paddle out.

What's it like!

The Peak is legendary wave – a long V-shaped reef which juts out into the middle of the bay facing west-north-west and offers a short hollow right, and a long bashable left. It works well off a west to southwest swells and can hold waves up to 10 feet. Best two hours either side of low tide. It's one the most perfect waves in Europe and is ridable on most wind directions. Gets crowded, but nothing like as crowded as, say, Croyde or Fistral even on a good day. Not a wave for beginners; expect to get a thrashing if you get it wrong. Show respect to the locals and be friendly and you'll be treated to some of the legendary Irish hospitality.
