Last week, we introduced you to the Torchbearers of Irish surfing, some of whom have been obsessed with riding Ireland’s cold yet world-class waves long before the spotlight ever turned toward the Emerald Isle. This week, in Episode Two of Made In Ireland, we’re zeroing in on Ireland’s maddest surfers – The Nutjobs – who are made up of a small, core group of friends who relish every opportunity to take on big-wave venues like Mullaghmore and Aileen’s.

Corker rode along with Irish big-wave pro Conor Maguire as he and the crew prepared for a massive session at Mullaghmore – a wave that Maguire remembered seeing from his home beach as a kid. It was, Maguire says, “kind of like the looming monster in the distance.” We promise you’ve never seen Mullaghmore – and the surfers who brave its crazy peaks – quite like this. - Red Bull
