County Clare on the west coast of Ireland. A hidden reef off the Cliffs of Moher and the right kind of swell, creates a wave called Aileens.

  1. What do I do with this one? Does an Irish Yoga blogger posting spectacular wave videos qualify as a Yoga blog, to be posted on the Elephant Yoga Facebook page?

    I'm going to say yes!

    Yoga is all about beauty and balance. Surfing a wave takes balance and who can look at those photos and NOT see beauty? So yes, a wave video can count! Thanks Tobeye and thanks Bob!

  3. Hi, Trisha. This is really funny. I momentarily forgot what the header of my own website, Yoga Demystified, looks like!

    Why are the waves called Aileens? Is Aileen the name of the particular wave or the type of wave it is? What does it mean and what characterises it?
