Ireland's Most Decorated Surfer In Portugal For World Bodyboard Tour

Ireland's Most Decorated Surfer In Portugal For World Bodyboard Tour

#Bodyboarding - National Bodyboarding Champion Martin 'TK' Kelly is representing Ireland this week at the Portuguese stop on the APB World Tour for bodyboarding, as the Coleraine Times reports.

Regarded as the most decorated Irish surfer of all time, Kelly is flying the flag for the North Coast's dedicated surfing community among 140 of the world's best at Praia Grande.

And he's joined at the Sintra Pro by Sligo boarder and two-time Irish national champ Shane Meehan.

Though neither as expected to have a shot at the world crown, it will still be, in Kelly's words, "a fantastic experience" before he defends his Irish title in Bundoran at next week's Irish Nationals.

The Coleraine Times has more on the story HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
