When it is working, the reef off to the left of Lahinch is great craic. On good clean days with low or offshore winds, often strong clean ground swell makes for a long and enjoyable ride. The rip comes out by O'Looneys so watch it if you are coming in and tired! Check out www.lahinch.ie/surf to see the conditions daily from a web shot provided by Tom in the surf shop.Get out of the wave in time as it gets shallow on the inside.

left - usually a longboarders wave - nice long walls, but slow. If you can get it when it is just about maxing out, then you can hit with a shortboard. a real stylish wave.
