Irish West Coast windsurfer Ronan Mc Guire has just been signed to O\’Shea/Simmer UK. The nineteen-year old has been competing on the IWA wave tour for several years and is intent on making an impact this year. It\’s been nothing but good news since Ronan got his delivery of 2009 Simmers last week. He is fresh after winning 1st Junior and placing 6th overall in the IWA Achill Wave event last weekend. Ronan will compete in the remaining events of the IWA wave tour and will also be making the trip to Tiree in October for the UKWA wave event.
He has spent two months training in Maui earlier this year, concentrating on wave sailing, and recently spent three weeks in El Medano, Tenerife, practicing port jumping. For the next few months Ronan will be utilizing the fiery West Coast of Ireland to train. Ronan would like to thank O\’Shea UK and Dakine Hawaii for their support.
Ronan is currently looking for a board sponsor to join him on his windsurfing career. You can view photos, a blog, and get in contact at www.ronanmcguire.com
