Easkey has two reef breaks, this makes the waves more attractive to surfers because they are hollower and faster than beach breaks. However, the breaks in Easkey are suitable for experienced surfers only, although surfing lessons are available at local beaches for the less experienced. In 1979, Easkey hosted the Pro/Am Surfing World Championships. The location was also listed as “one of the places a travelling surfer has to visit” in Surfer Magazine, the biggest surfing publication in the world.
In 1995 the Irish Surfing Association established its headquarters in the newly built Easkey Surf and Information Centre, where they now employ one full time development officer and one part time administrator. Surfing equipment can be purchased from the surf centre and daily surf reports are available also.
