Eurosurf in Bundoran, Ireland

Eurosurf 2011 is possible the only surfing competition this year to have been opened by a bagpipe band? 

Open to correction here but Saturday's parade in Bundoran, Donegal - below - leaves you in doubt where the contest is taking place. Surfer Easkey Britton walks past for Ireland along with Shauna Ward and body boarder Ashleigh Smith. (and some guys too) In all 13 countries are taking part according to their website, with about 160 surfers. Yesterday was the first day of competition. I can't find results yet anywhere but will update you during the week. More photos are here on the tournament FB page.  They're also showing Bethany Hamilton's Soul Surfer as part of the festivities, great to see that getting time.
