A monstrous wave, measuring 98.4 feet, was recorded by an offshore weather buoy in the waters west of Ireland last week.

The wave was generated by the tail end of Hurricane Epsilon and is considered one of the highest waves ever recorded in Irish waters.

The hurricane’s aftermath caused unusually large wave action right off the coast of the Emerald Isle and caused one Irish surfer to go out and tackle some 60-footers. You can read about the surfer and watch him surfing at irelandbeforeyoudie.com
