The Irish know how to party hard, and Shane Dorian witnessed the magical sounds of the local surf.

Alongside Benjamin Sanchis, the American daredevil explored the caves of Aileens and Rileys, in County Clare.

"My first wave in Ireland will be tough to forget. I paddled into the line-up and met all the local lads who had the place wired. A big double up appeared, and the fellas yelled at me to go. That one first wave made my whole trip more than worthwhile. That whole 'luck of the Irish' thing is no joke," expressed Dorian.

The Golden State boasts more than 1,000 miles of coastline, as well as some of the world's best surf breaks. And the Ventura County Coast is one of the original birthplaces of California surf culture.
