This happened a while ago in Dublin . And even though it sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock story, it's true. John Bradford, a Dublin University student, was on the side of the road hitchhiking on a very dark night and in the midst of a storm. No cars were traveling that night. The storm was so strong he could hardly see a few feet ahead of him. Suddenly, he saw a car slowly coming towards him and stop. John, desperate for shelter and without thinking about it, got into the car and closed the door.... only to realize there was nobody behind the wheel and the engine wasn't on!! The car started moving slowly. John looked at the road ahead and saw a curve approaching. Scared, he started to pray, begging for his life. Then, just before the car hit the curve, a hand appeared through the window and turned the wheel. John, paralyzed with terror, watched as the hand repeatedly came through the window, but never touched or harmed him. Shortly thereafter John saw the lights of a pub appear down the road. So, gathering strength, he jumped out of the car and ran to the pub. Wet and out of breath, he rushed inside and started telling everybody about the frightening experience he had just had. A silence enveloped the pub when everybody realized he was crying and.... wasn't drunk. Suddenly the door opened and two other people walked in from the stormy night. They, like John, were also soaked and out of breath. Looking around, and seeing John Bradford sobbing at the bar, one of the fellows said to the other, 'Look Paddy...There' s that freakin' idiot that got in the car while we were pushin' it!'

Doubling-up is when two waves combine. If my old eyes serve me right there be two crests on that wave?

well, I can see forgetting to go left and going right being a bit of a problem on this wave. We'll let them slide then

They can't help it, once on the peak they forget their left from their right! ;)

What a chunky slab of water. Respect to all the Irish who have made this wave their main break. How long before a macho schmuk calls it tame? A real awesome strech of coast.
