almost looks unmanageable with the massive amounts of water moving in I bet the current was out of control I would love to see a shot of someone actually standing on one of those beasts

"possibly because you have been just surfing on the uk + Ireland forecast page. you could try reregistering from one of the new zealand pages" It's based on the country you registered in - you can change it on the 'my msw' page.

I just keep seeing good shot after good shot of Ireland and England. I think most people knew that Ireland had some surf but you guys are really just blowing it up. Can't wait to plan my next trip!

I used to go to France every Autumn. A mate of mine would go over to Ireland. He`d ask me why I`d keep going South and not try some East coast Ire for a change. "Power and Size" I`d foolishly say. He always said there were some big days and I thought he was makin it up. Classic place, surf and people.
