A call to the wild, a hunt for these waves or just an excuse to escape to the Irish coast with friends, Finisterre’s latest visual offering gives you a taste of the good life; if by good you mean clean lines, killer breaks and the opportunity to roam free. At least for a couple of days.
The trip begins in the wee hours – tired eyes, tired minds and tired souls weary from the day to day routine quickly igniting as the drive through epic coastal scenery that the Emerald Isle is so known for sparks a new excitement in the crew.
Ambassadors Matt Smith, Noah Lane, Easkey Britton, Fergal Smith and Sandy Kerr ventured out to Ireland last winter with boards in tow to tread the lines, swap tales and create some new ones, with Chris McClean along for the ride documenting their every move. These friendships forged at sea had led to the promise of new adventure, and it was a promise not to be reckoned with.
Waves for days, welcoming new faces into the fold and celebrating old friendships, The Lost Weekend was a chance to reconnect with nature and each other, and was – quote – the best surf trip Sandy Kerr has ever been on. That’s good enough for us.
