Sources close to Kelly Slater have sensationally revealed his admiration for the Cork surf scene. His chats with one insider reveal the extent to which Kelly thinks corks surfers are the new Kellys. “Its unbelievable!! He just wont shut up about the place. All I hear from him is how the cork scene is about to produce the new him!” Of course this is not surprising news with similarities between cork and Kellys home breaks in the mushy beaches of florida. He has already been quoted as saying how the lack of proper waves forces the local surfer to refine his style to such and extent that they become a better surfer in comparison to locals at much better quality waves.

Further evidence of kellys affiliation with cork was his rendez vous with GAA star Sean Og Hailpin in Fiji where the two hooked up for a quick game of hurling on the beach in between surfs. He expressed his disapointment with Corks failure to get to the ALL IRELAND HURLING FINAL. Sean Og said “jeesus he was gutted like. He said when you going to beat them Kilkenny langers.”

Kerry Surfers Cause Turmoil on Corks Quality Breaks

Tensions are reportedly on the rise in Cork again as hoards of Kerry surfers invade the lineups of certain Cork secret spots. Local surfers , who wish to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal, are thinking of making a formal complaint to the ISA. “ I am absolutely sick of it boy’’, said one long time local, ‘’ I cant even pull up at my local spot for all the bloody Kerry reg vans parked up every decent swell we get’’.

It seems the combination of a lack of proper waves and the burgeoning group of hardcore progressive surfers in the Kerry region has meant that they are beginning to travel further afield in search of powerful reef breaks and performance orientated waves, with nearby Cork with its vast array of amazing setups taking the brunt of their expansionist forays.
‘’The thing that pisses me off so much is that they have no respect for our secret spots’’, said one G-town resident, ‘’you’ll see one van first, then next swell they have told all their buddies about our epic waves. Before you know it, it’s like the Kerry wolf pack out there, hooting themselves onto our waves and generally dominating the peaks. Worst of all they all think they surf with such a shit-hot refined style, which couldn’t be further from the truth’’. Nobody in Cork wants heavy localism to rear its ugly head but lets face it, nobody wants a poo-stance arse in their face either, especially not a Kerry arse.
