An Irish pastoral with Gearoid McDaid*
*(the surfing starts at 1:00, for those intolerant of flowery intros)
Our friends in France, Wasted Talent, have been making these beautiful little clips with some of Europe's lesser-known characters, hitting us each month with portraits of the continent's more interesting underground guys.
Here's WT's Alexei Obolensk's take on a recent trip, featured in the edit above, with young Irish goofy foot Gearoid McDaid, aka DAGDA, a stocky lad of just 19.
For those of you who are unfamiliar, Gearoid (Pronounced Gea-akdjhaipudh) is one of Ireland’s, nay Northern Europe’s, hottest prospects right about now. A supremely well-rounded surfer. He's an amazing value on the beers, so we get along outstandingly well.
Wanting to visit him at home, a phone call was made: “Guys I’d love to have you come stay, and shoot, it’s pumping! But I’m stuck in Portugal and it sucks!” Gearoid told us.
