Pollan Bay, Ballyliffen in Inishowen, Co. Donegal. As like last year there
were two divisions 'Novice' and 'Open', and surfers could ride whatever
type of board they liked.
The event started in heavy rain with offshore 2-3ft waves on the reef at
Ballyliffen, some strong early performances from Jim Lenfsty, Tony Doherty
and Kieron Scallion made for some exciting 1st round heats.
As the day progressed the wind swung around to the NW and conditions
became more difficult.
The Open final was moved to further down the beach as the tide had dropped
and was held in solid over head waves, with some excellent surfing from
the four surfers including local surfer's Sean Mclaughlin and Iain Gilmour
who was riding a single fin fish. But it was Jim Lenfsty, last year's
runner up who put in a powerful performance to take this years Final.
The club would like to thank all the competitors and spectators for turing
out in such horrible weather, and Ocean Warriors in Portrush for
sponsoring the prizes.

Annual “Legends” Dinner Dance
All are welcome
Don’t miss the T-Bay Surfer’s event of the year!
For all of those in attendance last year, you are well aware that this is a truly unforgettable evening that spans & links decades of Irish Surfers together. We are a tribe! And the tribe will unite once again for another “Legendary” soiree in Tramore.
Leave your jeans and t-shirts at home lads. Coat and Tie mandatory for this 2nd annual “Legends” event. The Ladies were dazzling at last year’s event, so we need not even bother to mention stylin’ it to the girls! We know they will come out dressed to the 9’s once again!
Tickets are limited and most of last years’ attendee’s are already booking theirs. So we don’t want to see any waterworks outside of this closed door event like last year because you failed to get a ticket. If you don’t have one, it will be a sad state of affairs listening to the mighty Craic from outside a wooden door!
Tickets are limited to 250 people maximum and all others will not see the other side of the door, no matter how much you can hear the band! So, unless you plan on hearing about “Legends” again this year, ya better bank one now! No more than 250 will be sold.
Event will be held at the Grand Hotel in Tramore on Saturday, March 15th (a Paddy’s weekend tradition)!
No excuses. No Barney’s. Get a ticket now!
