    Lots of positive adjectives have been used to describe this weekend so far, great, perfect, awesome, cracking, excellent, savage... I second all of those adjectives and add one of my own... Lovely people, lovely waves, lovely weekend, lovely!

    Davey, thanks for doing this! Perfect organizing, as always. Siobhan, Kriston and Meike, thank you for the cool "road trip", it was a pleasure meeting you. Jason, thanks for the little "tech chat", don't forget about the book :-) Joe, I've already forgotten all the beer recommendations you gave me :-p You will remind me next time we meet, ok?
    Guys, it was lovely to meet you all. See you next time in Bundoran! Or maybe in the meantime in Dublin for a drink or two, if there's an opportunity.
    Take care!

    Hi everyone, I've just signed up to meetup this week, spotted this group, and as it happens I'm heading to Bundoran this afternoon around 4pm to do my own thing for the weekend, leaving from Dundrum. I'd be more than happy to take anyone who's stuck if they can make it to me or are more or less en route. Travelling in a Transit converted into a camper, so can take 2 people and any boards shorter than 8 feet. Just leave me a message and I'll get back to you later.
    Karl :)

    GETTING TO BUNDORAN (from Dublin):

    Those who can offer lifts up to Bundoran please remember to post up here.

    But otherwise if you can't get a lift, don't get stuck in Dublin!

    Get yourself to Bus Aras and hop on Bus 30 towards Donegal. A return will cost you about 32 Euro. You'll need to get off at Ballyshannon. Buses leave from Bus Aras every 2 hours from 07:30am. Tip: the trip will take you approx 3,5-4 hours so try not to take the bus later than 5:30pm to avoid getting in super duper late!).

    If you arrive earlier than 8:30pm you can get a taxi to the Rougey Lodge which will cost you about 10 Euro. Here’s a list of taxi’s & hackneys you can ring:

    John Gallagher[masked]
    Malchy Taxis[masked]
    Dalys Taxis[masked]
    Starlight Cabs[masked]

    If you get to Ballyshannon after 8.30pm get in touch with me[masked] and we’ll arrange for someone to pick you up.
