The Slab

The most inflamous spot on the coast. Advanced only please. On you're way round the coast road between Portrush and Portstewart hidden under the cliff of Ballyreagh Golf Course lies the Slab. Its a dangerous, absolutly mental ledgy sucky wave.

What's it like!

The Slab breaks over a hideously shallow rock ledge, needs the right swell size, direction and wind before even mildy thinkable! Its arguably not a wave because its so short and mutant, but it throws a spectacular barrel. Don't think about surfing it unless you are experienced enough.
