Hails from Bundoran Beach, surfing capital of Ireland. Enjoys dueling on the waves with surfin' blokes, though, naturally, he calls it, “dool-ing.” Loves cold water surfing because, “She's faster on ice, dude!” Boasts he owns world's largest wet suit wardrobe, a necessity off the coast of Ireland and at Tofino Bay in Canada, another of Doolin's favorite cold water spots. Good friends with “Hossegor” Hank. Often seen with Hank and “Sumatra” Sam jamming waves off Cyclops and other beaches in Australia.

“Keep surfin' laddies! May your joys be as deep as the ocean and your troubles as light as the foam…wherever you may roam!”
The Surfer Dudes:
Toss this surfer toy into the waves and it will self-right in the water and surf back to you. (Kind of like a water-based boomerang.) Kids will delight in throwing the toy and watching it come back time after time, which is the result of years of careful engineering. No batteries, no noise—just surfing fun at the beach.
The design might seem simple, but it took the Surfer Dude team years to engineer the toy to consistently get that cool surfing action. The magic comes from a self-righting hydrodynamic manta wing and unsinkable foam surfboard. It's carefully weighted to get the right balance and it doesn't need any batteries to do its thing.
Gently sloping sandy beaches are ideal, avoid strong currents and rocky beaches. Do not use in waves over three feet
