Irish Surfing Association's No 1 Christmas Gift 2012

Irish Surfing Association's No 1 Christmas Gift 2012 has to be "How Green Was Their Wave - The Dawn of Surfing in Ireland" by Kevin Cavey. This classic book details the early days of Irish surfing and it is a great read. While most will have a little knowledge of this period of Irish Surfing the book pieces together the whole story including the challenges faced by the pioneers of Irish surfing, the craic, the lifelong friendships, the many epic surfaris up and down coast and Kevin's heroic trips to Hawaii and the World Surfing Championships in 1966. The book is available in surf shops nationwide or online from the following link (full review also available on line) http://originalwriting.ie/bookshop/non-fiction/social-history/how-green-was-their-wave-the-dawn-of-surfing-in-ireland/
