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...
