We are very proud and excited to welcome Fergal Smith to the Finisterre family.
We’ve been big fans for some time. His commitment to chasing waves of consequence has been a huge inspiration to us all coupled with his attitude and approach to life. A few weeks ago we spent a few days with Fergal in Ireland and it reinforced that his values are a direct reflection of ours – A commitment to cold water surfing, a responsibility to do more to protect our environment and a dedication to building relationships with the people and communities that matter.
The partnership will see us not only supporting Fergal, but the Moy Hill community garden too, a passion project that Fergal and a few close friends including Ambassador Matt Smith has committed to in the last few years. We'll be sending over a bunch of insulated jackets for the farm and the community that help the place flourish.
From this original project Fergal has made a commitment to growing food to support himself and the community around him, and has made it his mission to educate others about the importance of local food and farming. He also happens to be surfing better than ever. Fergal is one of the best barrel and big wave riders to have been born on European shores, he was part of a tight team of surfers that first surfed the mind bending waves Ireland is now famous for.
We'll also be ensuring Fergal is warm in the line up this winter in our newly launched Finisterre wetsuit, designed with durability and warmth at the heart of the product development.
Fergal joins the close family of riders that includes, Noah Lane, Matt smith, and Easky Britton.
