We will meet at The Surfer's House Portrush, grab a coffee from the machine in the Snug and have a chat about the trip. I have lots of stories to tell you! Then we will head to the coast and get ready to go from the harbour in town. We will cruise on the boards checking out things that you cant normally see from land. We will see a sea cave, a hidden cove and sea cliffs. I will tell you lots of sea stories about the history (including vikings, WW2 and shipwrecks) and the myths and legends surrounding the coast as we go . I know a few of the local seal population and they often come alongside and say hello. Sometimes in the winter. the local porpoises (kind of small dolphin like creatures) cruise by too. We will always be very close to shore so at various points we will get off the boards and access areas on the coast that you couldn't normally. I always bring a camera to take pics and video for you. I will send them to you back at the harbour before I leave and I am sure you will have loads of great stories to tell of your own by this point!
Hi my name is Al Mennie. I have been surfing since the age of 9! It has taken me all over the world. I began competing at the age of 14 and started chasing bigger and bigger waves all over the globe in my teens. Naturally this evolved to paddleboarding, rowing and all sorts of ocean related activities. I was the first person to cross between The Giants Causeway and Scotland on a Paddleboard. so I know these waters like no one else. If you have ever seen the big waves of Nazare Portugal in the news you will know how crazy it looks. I was one of the pioneers of that location and was part of the team the day The biggest wave in the world was ridden. I am honoured to have my board and a plaque mounted on The Surfer Wall Hall of Fame in the Lighthouse overlooking the waves.
Precisely where we go will depend on the day but it will be on The Causeway Coast anywhere from Benone Strand, to Portstewart, the caves at Portrush, one of several quaint harbours, the big white cliffs at Whiterocks with all its natural carvings (The Elephant, The Giants Head etc), Dunluce Castle and Portbalintrae! I know this area extremely well so I know all the places to show you that you will never see along this coast with anyone else.
