Eoin takes part in Clean Coasts'
"Waters and the Wild" series
Eoin was joined by Paul Byrne from Irishsup
to chat about why they love the SUP
Aidan Gray from Clean Coasts describes the series - "For almost 20 years, Clean Coasts has been supporting community groups over many years and each year we have seen real heroes emerge through their voluntary commitment and effort for their local area in keeping the coast clean and the waters free from pollution. We have recognized and awarded heroes every year that stand out with great achievements. Our common link is the sea and our relationship with it – taking away rubbish that washes in from it, and stopping rubbish get to the sea; life that lives within the water, and creating events for life beside the sea; tackling short and long term problems; and while educating people about issues around the coast, we create a lot of fun by the sea too!
The “Waters and the Wild” series looked at individuals who brave the wild seas and, whether a sport or a hobby, people have mastered their abilities, won awards and tackled extreme challenges; for charities, competitions, or just simply pushing themselves further than they have been before. Through the series we looked at open water swimming, diving, canoeing, kayaking, surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, stand-up-paddling, and sailing. We explored their personal stories, their challenges, their difficulties, and their successes What inspired them?
