Spotted in rural Ireland on a road trip to the midlands.
Google Maps is a great tool for checking out the potential of new surf spots, be it near your local break, or somewhere on the other side of the world. If the image quality is good enough you can even see tiny little surfers in the water getting shacked!
Do you recognise any of the following well known surf spots?
Mikey DeTemple’s Sight Sound short surf movie showcases the talents of DeTemple, Chris Del Moro, Tyler Warren, Ryan Burch, and other hipsters as they score some awesome waves along the beautiful and diverse coasts of North and South/Central America, Canada, and the Bahamas. The soundtrack is pretty cool too: A chilled eclectic selection of electronica and indie featuring the talented Footprintz, Com Truise, White Denim, and more.
There is a nice variety of footage to suit most afficiandos: logging, short boarding, air-time, wipeouts, and Ryan Burch mixing it up with some hybrids.
At 37 mins the movie is a little short, but definitely leaves me wanting more….
Bellagio is a beautiful picturesque village in Northern Italy. Surrounded by amazing panoramic views of Lake Como and the Alps, it is has to be one of the most romantic places to visit when in Italy. Beautiful old buildings, narrow cobblestone streets, wonderful cafes and restaurants all make up a wonderful experience.
Sunday morning is the perfect time to go for a walk, and if you have a dog there is no better place to let them off the leash and chase the birds.
I have fond childhood memories of going for long weekend walks with my own family on the local beach and dunes.
The beach is ever changing: Somedays it’s calm, others its crazy wild. Sands shift upwards and downwards of 2 metres, revealing and concealing. Storms eat away the land, and bring in flotsam from all over the world. Last weekend I found what looked like a transmission engine from a motor car. How does something like this get carried in the sea, and from where?
And of course, if you have a dog, there is nearly always a big of doggy socialising to be done.
