Pina Colada Song On And On...

Our first trip South…..

Guest post by Aisling Donnellan, gappy extraordinaire (including all photos!):

Last month the vans were loaded, snacks purchased, playlists (good and bad!!) were prepared and we quit the overwhelming odours of our beloved Taghazout and took a trip down under… We didn’t quite make it to Sidi Ifni, took our pitstop at Mirleft, incredibly mellow and beautiful little village with abandoned surf spots everywhere, was perfect….

The boys pumped the empty point break like clockwork for hours, had to be literally dragged out of the water, they were on a high! It was one of the most beautiful and scenic spots I think most of us had ever surfed, incredible experience and again alone in the water, heaven.

All in all great trip, really good fun and good memories made, the ‘Pina Colada’ song is now firmly cemented in everyones brain for life, all looking forward to heading back.
