Most leave, whilst a few stay
Gary McCall is in the Finisterre Product Tester stable. Northern Ireland and its reefs are where he's most comfortable, and with a handful of locals, they're stamping their abilities within the global big wave surf arena.
A bit about a recent shot and what happened, only two days ago:
Gary: That was dawn surf check at Mullaghmore when the swell was peaking. Was down there with Al and Cotty. We set out onto the water early and after nearly deciding to return to harbour Cotty went straight and nailed one around 50ft which must have been the biggest of the day!
Ernie: where's the shot?
Gary (humbly replies): oh yeah, it's here here'
