I didn't really expect the sun out all day and man did the boys have some fun out there. Out on the water there was Mikee Hamilton, Dave Lavelle, Paul O'Kane, Barry Mottershead, Richie Fitzgerald, Neil Britton, Peter Craig, Rick Hutton, Dylan Stott, Kurt Rist, Andrew Cotton, Al Mennie, the boat driver Michal Czubala, my mate Mick and me on the boat watching the show.
Everyone was towing into some nice waves and if you think they should've been paddling like Al, well take a good close look at this shot, pretty damn heavy. Fair balls to the big red nut for giving it a go paddling thou. Thanks to everyone out there for making it a very memorable day, one I will not forget, cheers Michal for driving the boat.
Keep an eye out for the next Tonnta as hopefully there might be a couple of shots squeezed in, in time for the up coming issue out in a few weeks.

It was a crackn day at Easkey. Once again the sun was out most of the time, offshore winds and a good swell running. Easkey Britton said "this is the best conditions for the whole 2 days in the history of the event from what I can remember". The contest itself was blasted into full throttle with everyone making the most of excellent surf. Every final was too close to predict a winner, with the contestants pushing each other wave after wave. It made for great entertainment watching from the grass area below the towering caslte ruins. Well done to all who entered the event, i haven't got all the results yet, but these will be posted when I get the full information. I do know that Fergal Smith took out the open mens and Nicole Morgon won the womens open. Congratulations. Here's a few pics from the day
