    Well, its only 4 days to the next surf trip. Not that I'm obsessed or anything. Pointing out that its 18 days to the trip after that would make me obsessed. What a cracking weekend. See you all soon on or under the water. ;)

    Hello, Michael here, how's trricks? I have not been very active with the group so far, sorry! Been doing a lot of open water sea swimming races, that's just ended so be up for getting some surfing in next few months. Normally surf with a mate who's way too good for my level so I can say I have surfed all the big spots but can also say I haven't really! So be up for some more light surf! Been to Bundoran quite a bit, but mostly hit Strandhill and have "surfed!" Easkey, Streedagh, Lahinch and Spanish Point!

    How often do you get away as a group? Can't make this weekender, as I've tickets for Dublin Mayo Sunday but be up for the next one.

    Thanks and enjoy the surf this weekend!

    Michael.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
