It may be the tourism off-season on the West Coast but not for surfing in Lahinch where they are having one of their best ever winter seasons.
Ben Bennett, from Ben’s Surf Clinic in Lahinch, tells the Clare Herald in this video just why bad weather can be good for business.
“People have the impression that summer is the time to surf. Winter is when you get the biggest storms so, therefore, you get the biggest waves. So good surfers are always looking to surf in the winter”.
Enjoy the magical footage from a windy winters day in Lahinch.
