When storms get big, like really big, you’ll find the who’s who of the international big wave contingent spread across just a small handful of locales around the globe. For massive swells in the North Atlantic, Mullaghmore on the west coast of Ireland has become a proving ground for the world’s best with a taste for the XXL. On December 12th 2021, everything aligned for what would be remembered as the session of the winter for Ireland’s big wave surfers. The film below documents that day and the warriors that took it on.
