surfing waterville? - There are waves in Waterville. you just need to choose the day like anywhere else. If you know where to go it can be somewhat better than castle for the experienced surfer. There is some "aggro" alright, from your ignorant "burkes" but in general the fellas out there are cool enough. Lets face it, nobody in Kerry is Kelly Slater and the aggro seems to come in the form of drop-ins as they have trouble getting their own waves when a good surfer paddles out.
