The Inertia

Irish filmmaker Stephen Kilfeather put this solid three-minute piece together highlighting Irish slab surfing. In this case, Irish bodyboarding. The video appears on a YouTube channel for Sligo Surf Experiences, a surf school run by Seamus McGoldrick in Northwestern Ireland’s Sligo County. Seamus or “Shambles” is rather gifted on a foam boogie board, as you can see – bodyboarders were instrumental in opening up some of the heaviest slabs on Ireland’s West Coast. So it’s easy to see why Shambles lives for moments like these.


Only the best. We promise.
