What a year it's been for Donegal surfer, Bea Greenberg. Fresh from a hat-trick of All-Ireland wins, Bea has added some serious accomplishments to her bow this year, including U16 All Ireland Girls Shortboard Champion, U18 All Ireland Womens Longboard Champion, as well as the U17 Girls All Ireland Windsurfing Champion. Phew!  But as Bea says herself, nothing comes easy. We speak to her on training hard with her coach Triona Nic Meanaman and her two teams,  Rossnowlagh Surf Club and Donegal Surf Lifesaving team. 

Can you tell us how you got into surfing?

describe a typical day in the life of bea

A typical day for myself during the winter is going to school and getting good grades. I swim on Tuesdays and Fridays with Tonnta Swim School and use my Huku boards as often as I can. After I get home I do my homework and then after that if I'm lucky I get to go surfing. Now that the clocks have gone back I won’t get time to go surfing because it’s dark so early. Weekends are my time to shine during the winter months.

tell us about how you pre-comp training?

My pre-training consists of a lot of time in the ocean.  During the summer the Surf Lifesaving takes place and we train twice a week in Marble Hill and three times a week in Rossnowlagh. I am lucky that I work on the beach with Jaws Watersports during the summer so I can train every day before work as well as with my team. When it comes to surfing you have to get out as much as you can. It’s also important to make sure your core and arms are strong because that's what you mainly use when surfing. To keep me in shape my coach Triona Nic Meanaman gives me workout sheets that I can do with my Huku board. It does take a lot of work but it's so worth it at the end of the day.

you’ve been a Huku ambassador for 2 years now. how's that been?

what makes surfing in Donegal and Ireland so special?

Donegal is a beautiful place. The water is clean and there are small crowds. The people in the water surfing are super nice and respectful. Ireland is my favourite place. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
