Mullaghmore Goes XXL

A brief visual feast of what Ireland's blackest hole is really capable of when it goes XXL.

Mullaghmore has quickly become Ireland's most famous big wave spot. It's cold as you can believe (snow-capped mountains are visible), it needs big storm swells to break so it's always dark and gloomy, and the overall vibe of the place couldn't be more intimidating.

But, a crew of local hellmen aren't scared of it. Barry Motterhead, Kurt Rist, Dylan Sott and friends sessioned the Big M during a recent swell.

It's far from being a cakewalk...
