First off I want to say that I nowhere near have the ability or balls to paddle into a wave of that size but come on..... guys are paddleing into much bigger waves around the world than that. Is 10-15 ft the threshold for normal surfing in Ireland now.

btw Capt.Nemo, i've just watched that article 'Fog Of Doom' which i've lately seen, and it's 6-10ft... stated on the article. not 30ft like someone above is sayin how its possible to paddle into this break when its 30ft! But good point, this spot is only for the hardcore nut jobs that dont have a problem with possibly loosing their lives. cheers

lads this wave isnt really paddle in territory when it gets a certain size. The speed and the way it breaks its just not possible! And you cant compare waves like the Bay to other waves, they all break in different ways. People have tryed to paddle into Aileens who have surfed Mavs and the like on massive days and they simply say that its just not possible!

You should check out the "Fog of Doom" article on this sight, there is some great video of a paddle in session at Aileens :)

you couldn't paddle into that... dno what your talking about... =/ The pressure of the lip caving in would push like 3ft under the surface, who can duck-dive 3ft? and if you get caught ducking a wave like this and you tumble... you're deffo fucked!

Yeah it would be pretty epic to see a bit more of that...I have defo seen footage of guys paddling into Aileens which is awesome...

All points taken. There is more to that wave than can be seen in photo, speed of wave (but this is deffo not faster than Any pacific island big spots) and Yes practice is needed but i would love to see (more often) people charge the hell out of Aileens and mullaghmore old school style like some of the insane Mavericks Waimea bay and even sunset photos. Sorry , now i feel like such an old granddad sitting on my long board on a 3-4 ft day dreaming of doing that stuff.

did you take into your considerations that you only see half of the wave´s height in this picture?

its not purely size, there is the spot's and the wave's characteristics that determine if you can paddle into it or not.

By the way I would never claim to be an expert at any of this, or would I attemp to do any of it, I just admire their work!

Yeah Brian I hear your point, but also i'd say these guys are well able to paddle into these waves but they have to use the smaller days to work on their towing skills at various big wave spots...I've seen surfers towing into 50+ ft at this spot 2 years ago and they need to have their shit together for those days
