#Surfing - Bundoran-based Peter Craig currently tops the voting among six unlucky surfing enthusiasts shortlisted for Surfer magazine's ignoble 'Worst Wipeout' award, as reports.

When the recent giant swells hit Ireland's northwest coast, veteran waverider Craig was out there in the surf with the best of them.

But as the video clip above shows, he ended up a victim of the wall of water for which Mullaghmore Head's become famous.

However, the Derryman takes it all in his stride, describing the wipeout as "par for the course" for any hardened wave hound.

"I'd love to win [the award]," he adds, "but wouldn't be able to afford to get to Hawaii to pick it up."

The Surfer Poll awards will be webcast live on Friday 6 December.

Below is a video featuring more action from Mullaghmore Head over Halloween:
