What a start to the season!!! really has been none stop for 2months straight!
My days consist of either spearfishing of surfing, simple as that.
Today was a different kettle of fish ”excuse the pun” was a hell scary day under the Cliffs Of Moher, size wise around 20ft faces, and I’m not dramatising that. When we checked the waves it was around 10ft, then by the time id suited up, around 30mins later, it had grown to double the size!
I didn’t even get a wave, just played cat and mouse round these monstrous bombs. Until eventually i called it a day. Which is when the real fun started on the paddle in. I timed it real bad, getting a huge set of about 10 waves on my head, a good old thrashing. Saying that i remained calm, and just relaxed underwater with my Patagonia vest to keep me afloat. No worries.
Probably sound like a headcase, but its great experience to be out in that energy. Espessially with all this El Nino talk!
Below is this morning at dawn….how big do you think this is??? hard to tell right! Its around 10ft Hawaiian.

My best bass ever caught last week, and truly gloating.
Spearing under the Cliffs on a sunny day, in Ireland???
Im feeling a little fragile to say the least, so keeping this blog short and sweet. Peace out!!!

Now this to me is living, its when i feel most content, truly in my element, out here alone in nature. All my free time has been spent searching for the next new cove to dive, climbing down cliffs to secluded areas, feeling like a kid again, swimming and hunting the Cornish coasts. The past few months has been mind opening to really connect with the underwater world.
Been getting some triply footage with my new GoPro, heres some frame grabs from the past weeks.
Ive a freezer full of Bass,Mullet,Pollock,Bream and Mackerel, which should last me into winter if i keep it up.
Above was my biggest catch of the summer, maybe not big game hunting, but for home im stoked and proud all the same!
So this is me until next XXL swell turns up, getting my hunt on! YEW!!!
