Made In Ireland: Meet Ireland's Maddest Surfers - Part 2

Get an inside look at Ireland’s most dedicated big wave crew.
In chapter two of Made In Ireland, you’ll have a front row seat for one of the biggest days of the year at Mullaghmore, and an inside look at the minds of the surfers who charge it.

Last week, we introduced you to the Torchbearers of Irish surfing, some of whom have been obsessed with riding Ireland’s cold yet world-class waves long before the spotlight ever turned toward the Emerald Isle. This week, in Episode Two of Made In Ireland, we’re zeroing in on Ireland’s maddest surfers – The Nutjobs – who are made up of a small, core group of friends who relish every opportunity to take on big-wave venues like Mullaghmore and Aileen’s.

Corker rode along with Irish big-wave pro Conor Maguire as he and the crew prepared for a massive session at Mullaghmore – a wave that Maguire remembered seeing from his home beach as a kid. It was, Maguire says, “kind of like the looming monster in the distance.” We promise you’ve never seen Mullaghmore – and the surfers who brave its crazy peaks – quite like this.
