Record-Breaker McNamara Announced For Second Surf Summit

#Surfing - Irish-American big wave surfing star Garrett McNamara is the first big name speaker announced for Sligo's Surf Summit this coming November.

According to SportsNewsIreland, the man who set the record for the biggest wave ever surfed in 2012 – and broke his own record in 2013 – will be in attendance for the Web Summit's Strandhill retreat from 6-8 November.

Inaugurated last year, the Surf Summit comprises a series of networking dinners, parties and discussions for entrepreneurs, start-ups and investors in a more relaxed atmosphere than the preceding conference in Dublin.
