Britain's own Olympic medalist Bryony Shaw journeys to the west coast of Ireland to soak up the beautiful windsurfing conditions it has to offer.

Stepping off the RS:X and onto her wave gear, Bryony blasts around the idyllic shores sharing just why she loves windsurfing. Bryony is amidst another Olympic campaign, which should see her heading to Rio in 2016; fingers crossed Bryony can bring home yet more medals!

As summer approaches this is the perfect time to share the windsurfing love with others and this is a great video to explain just what it's all about to friends and family. If you've got them tempted then take a look at the ever increasing Boards schools directory for where to take a loved one to learn.

This video is part of the 'First Up, First Down' series on Mpora, following the adventures of many action sports heroes. First up here Steph and Olly Bridge kitesurf the Isle of Lewis, plus Steve Peat gets some downhill mountain bike action in the Scottish highlands; both are well worth a watch!
