Prowlers: big wave surfing in Ireland

"Prowlers" may only be surfed once or twice a year, but it is always a pleasure to test its power.

With the perfect wind and swell conditions, the mystery wave of Ireland has an enormous potential.

Recently, a group of surfers from Ireland, Britain and South Africa have hit the surf in an incredible tow-in session lead by Richie Fitzgerald.

The exact location of the wave on the west coast of Ireland remains a mystery, but it might break over a reef about 2km off the Cliffs of Moher.

In "Prowlers" waves have reached 50 feet. Watch the last big wave surfing session, HERE.
