Surfers travel to Hawai and many other otherwise famous beaches to enjoy high waves for surfing. But there is yet another place which has one of the highest waves for surfers.
This incredible spot is off the British coast that could produce the biggest surfable waves on Earth at 120ft-high off the Northern Irish coast.

Al Mennie, who has surfed some of the most extreme conditions on the planet, said he is waiting for the perfect conditions to surf what he believes is the largest swell on earth. 'This is my mission. The good days are few and far between - 90 per cent of the swells are unrideable and we'd reckon that only two days each year are rideable,' he said.
However, the Portrush-based Mr Mennie and his right-hand man Andrew Cotton, from Devon, refuse to disclose the exact locations of the waves due to the increasing number of inexperienced surfers trying to make a name for themselves on virtually unrideable waves.
