Blackspot

Situated at the very south end of Bundoran on the Donegal-Leitrim border, Blackspot offers two waves for the price of one. At low tide it is a short, very hollow, slabbing left-handed barrel and at high tide it turns into a long double hollow section right-hander.

Blackspot needs a swell from 3 foot upwards to work properly. Light offshore wind and keeping an eye on the tides are essential for surfing here.

Things to watch out for

  • Blackspot has a pretty tricky entry and exit area with slippy rocks and swell ebbing and flowing for several meters over the rocks.
  • Watch out for shallow sections at both ends.

    Thought this was one of the waves we didn’t highlight publicly! It’s easily found but no need to make it easier!
