Ireland was being battered by 50+ft waves today and Mullaghmore was the place to be, even if you’re windsurfer.
We don’t have a confirmed ID (UPDATE – it was Irish windy legend, Finn Mullen) for this guy and the footage is a little ragged but it doesn’t change the fact that the fella got himself properly tubed by a Mullaghmore monster – for a few split seconds anyway.
There can’t be that many windsurfers ever who’ve had a wipeout like this – utterly destroyed by a giant barrel, eating board, rider, mast and sail, in one huge bite
