Ashleigh Smith, Silver Medal Eurosurf ’11
Each year Irish Surfing selects national teams comprising of our top surfers from the island of Ireland to represent us at international competitions. Our targeted International events are Eurosurf and Eurosurf Junior.
There is a strong vibrant surfing community in Ireland with our Surf Clubs and Surf Schools producing a wealth of talented young surfers. Today's young surfers will be the role models for the next generation, the coaches, the loyal volunteers and the leaders in our sport into the future. It is with this in mind that we target and concentrate on our home grown surfers who have developed through our grass roots structures and who commit to fully participating in our competition and training programs. No concession will be made to expats for Irish Surf Team selection based on results from another country or perceived ability. Full participation in our selection process and training program is required by every surfer to qualify for the Irish Surf Team.
In 2022 we will be selecting a junior team to compete at Eurosurf Junior. Selection process and event dates to be confirmed.
