#SURFING - British surfer Jayce Robinson wasn't about to let the largest wave ever recorded off Ireland's shores go by without giving it a shot.
And as Sky News Online reports, he was captured doing exactly that on Tuesday afternoon.
The Cornish surfing pro told the website: "It was definitely the biggest barrell I've ever surfed.
"I was a little nervous but I didn't have time to think about it - it's almost like a car crash, you don't know what's happening."
Robinson rode the giant wave for 20 seconds before the lip crashed down and knocked him off his board.
His surfing partner Lyndon Wake, who towed him to the swell at Mullaghmore Head, said: "It's always a worst case scenario when your tow partner wipes out. Lucky he managed to come out the other side OK."
As previously reported on Afloat.ie, storm force winds off the coast of Donegal produced monster rollers of over 20 metres (over 60 feet) in height detected in Donegal Bay.
Mullaghmore Head will once again welcome the world's top big wave surfers for the second annual Tow-In Surf Session in the New Year.
