Subject to the event organisors and a change in conditions the call has been made to run the Billabong/ Monster Energy Mullaghmore Head big wave tow in surf competition this Sunday and Monday 13th and 14th Feb 2011. With a west swell forecast in the 17ft range with a 15 second period with light offshore winds the waves could be hitting 25ft+ faces. Northcore Ambassador and big wave rider Richie Fitzgerald is on the invite list along with a host of other surfers who have been charging Irish reefs whenever the swell is big enough. Richie will be towing with partner Gabe Davies.
Mullaghmore Head is one of Ireland’s premier big-wave spots, breaking over a shallow, left hand reefbreak surfable on high tide. The spot handles any size swell, producing huge, heavy tubes. Mullaghmore is an experts only wave but the locals have it wired so the event is set to be a classic
