Glenn Hall: no time for a pint of Guinness, right now

Glenn Hall will wave the Irish flag in the 2013 ASP World Championship Tour, at 31, after a 12-year battle to qualify for the Dream Tour.

Glenn Hall was born in New South Wales, Australia. The experienced surfer lives in Europe and has decided to carry the flag of the Guinness beer over the world of elite surfing.

"I grew up in Australia and have lived here my whole life, I've spent plenty of time in Ireland too with my relatives in Cork and scoring amazing waves", Hall tells the ASP World Tour.

"A few years ago I had an opportunity to surf for Ireland and I liked the idea of representing the country and trying to give the younger generation in Ireland someone to follow in competitive surfing", he adds.

Glenn Hall is stoked to be part of the Dream Tour and believes "it is going to be a great challenge for me". Inspired by the surfing lessons by Jake Paterson, Hall promises he will try to beat everyone.

After a long qualifying marathon, Glenn Hall leaves an advice to the Star and Prime competitors. "There is a lot of luck in surfing, so you have to eventually get good luck, or maybe turn Irish then you get the luck of the Irish like me".

August 3, 2016, was a day that surfers should never forget. For the first time in its long history, surfing was confirmed in the Olympic Games.
