Surfer Rides Enormous Waves as Hurricane Epsilon Hits Irish Coast

A surfer in Ireland enjoyed some huge waves courtesy of Hurricane Epsilon, as it hit the Sligo coast earlier this week.

Footage released by Red Bull on October 30 shows Irish elite surfer Conor Maguire riding the epic waves in Mullaghmore, some of which reached an impressive height of 60 feet.

According to a press release from Red Bull, the dramatic surf conditions in the Irish Atlantic Ocean were caused by a rare weather occurrence that saw the hurricane merge with a mid-latitude depression. Credit: Red Bull via Storyful
