Stroove in Donegal is a sheltered beach break that only works once in a while. Summer in particular tends to be flat. The best wind direction is from the south. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the north. The beach break provides left and right handers. Surfable at all stages of the tide. Crowds are never a problem here. Watch out for rocks.
