The strong, latest-generation Bosch Performance CX motor delivers hitherto unknown power. And the Load 75 is also extremely reliable, thanks to its high-grade components.

Advance your surfing with advanced equipment and guidance and explore new lines on the waves.

Giants causeway walking tour

Enjoy your own private walking tour across the 40,000 basalt columns created by volcanic eruptions (but really by Finn!). The Giants Causeway is the only naturally created UNESCO World Heritage site on the island of Ireland and is considered by many to be the highlight of their journey along the famous Causeway Coastal Route.

Traditional Irish music night

  • Traditional Irish music (Trad) has been the life and soul of pubs across Ireland for 100’s of years. You will be immersed in a night of ‘mighty craic’ and local musicians play the Flute, Fiddle, Tin Whistle, Low Whistle, Uilleann Pipes, Accordion, Concertina, Bodhrán and Harp.
  • There is no better way to talk about a days surfing in the wild atlantic waves than beside a roaring pub fire, listening to some Trad sipping a pint of Guinness. Don’t forget the musicians are fond of a pint too so you can always show your appreciation by placing a fresh one on their table!

Bushmills whiskey tours and tasting
