Oh the memories !! Hi guys, I'm the "Irish guy" aka Paudie. I'll tell ya something.... if I had the opportunity to spend time and surf with you guys soon, I'd be there in a flash. Flew in, rented a T2 and picked up a new Bing IsIs from Matt and Margaret and headed off to meet ye guys. Shur, things were always gonna be good. Out at first point and Anderson Fan controlling the line up ever so well. Anyway... a few waves in and I took off and wiped. Mario or Mango said to me... " I didn't like the sound of that". And as sure as are eggs are eggs, dirty ol gouge out of my new stick. I was pi$$ed, as I'm only a Solerez and duct tape guy. No man, Little Al said to me "I'll take care of that, now lets go driving". We picked up the essentials and fair fu*ks, Little Al did an amazing job of my board. Lads, I would travel again across the Atlantic in the blink of an eye to meet up, surf, and talk story with ye guys. Great times, great crew.
