START as you mean to go on—Tom Butler and Mitch Corbett commenced 2011 with a little bit of Irish craic.
Just in time to flay the Christmas fat a chart that popped up worthy of hitching the ski and heading to Ireland. A strike mission that ended up getting extended until January 3rd. Only slight issue was that their filmer was in jail falsely accused of burglary making him pretty unobtainable.
They had to film this whole thing themselves and reckoned they had a very chilled New Year and were rewarded with 6-8ft barrels all New Year’s day. Not a bad way to start the year as the rest of the country nursed hangovers and regrets.
