26th December 2014
Lone Irish Entrant In New World Surf League For 2015

#Surfing - Glenn Hall is the only Irish surfing name set for competition in the 2015 World Surf League, the new name or the ASP World Tour.

Surfer Today has the full rundown of competitors, which includes such luminaries as multiple-time world champion and living legend Kelly Slater, and Irish-Australian surf pro Mick Fanning.

Australians make up the biggest proportion of entrants, with 12 Aussie surfers out of the 34-strong field set to challenge for the 2015 title.

In other surfing news, the ASP World Tour website has some breathtaking images of American big wave surfer Kurt Rist riding the tube of a massive swell that crashed over Mullaghmore Head in early November - his nomination for the 2014 XXL Big Wave Awards.

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.
