This and Nothing Else: Barry Mottershead

By on


Big-wave surfing is a passion like no other – let’s explore Barry’s addiction to the pursuit of XXL.

Meet Barry Mottershead. The South African was nipped by the travel bug at an early age and so he combed the globe, eventually falling in love with Ireland. Barry now resides on the Emerald Isle and works as a kayak tour guide to make ends meet. And for fun? He surfs Ireland’s heaviest waves. A regular at Mullaghmore, Barry talks about his addiction to big-wave surfing in a new episode of This and Nothing Else. It might just make you question the things that you're passionate about.
