Until you've surfed Hawaii, only opinion! Irish waves generally hit shallow shelf way out unless NNE, sucking energy out of the swell. Hawaiian jacks up on the shoreline, pure deep water power. Irish = Big, Hawaii = power+BIG. Not to mention the temps.

True. Any country can produce massive slabs. It's the offshores and consistent long interval big swells, & warm water that make pipe what it is. Ireland has big heavy slabs. Consistency is the difference. However, some years pipe sucks. This year its been going off since september. Hows this year over in Ireland? not bad, i'd imagine?
