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.

Dimitri Maramenides, the founder and owner of Epic Kites, rode his kite a few hours before Hurricane Florence hit the East Coast of the United States.
