Monster Waves of Europe- Ireland

IRISH SURF DOCUMENTARY (duration 26:29min): Some exclusive Irish Surf footage from 2007. Feature filmmaker Robby Seegar along with professional big wave surfers Jamie Sterling (Hawaii)  and Shaun Dickson (Australia) traveled to Ireland in search of the some of the biggest waves in Europe and to get a feel for the Unique Irish Surf Culture! Aileens is the main feature and the guys get some awesome barrels and beating in equal measure.

Back then the Irish big wave surfing scene was limited to a  small crew of dedicated locals and naturalised locals and the documentary catches up with some of these Pioneers including Paul O Kane, Tom DH, Dave Blount, Steve Thomas, John McCarthy and Mickey Smith.
