Surfing the Strand - Clongowes Wood College

Posted: 15th May 2013

On Sunday last, a group of boys from Third Line appeared to be oblivious to the wintry conditions as they took to the waves in Strandhill, Co. Sligo. Having got to grips with the basics back in September, several of the group were determined to hone their skills in anticipation of the summer months that apparently lie ahead. For most of the others, climbing aboard and staying-put would be the main challenge of the day. After two hours at sea it was time for a warm shower, and with not a little convincing Mr. McElwee and James the GAP agreed to draw the trip to a close with a visit to McDonald’s.

Many thanks to Mr. Sharkey for putting everything in place, while thanks must also go to Paul and his team of instructors at Strandhill.
