Tom Lowe's Abusive Mullaghmore Love Affair
"When there's a tow session, there's always paddle waves, no matter how big it is."
There's a small crew of die-hard loyalists that chase Mullaghmore swells like its their job.
For Tom Lowe, it actually is.
The relationship between the big-wave rider and the Irish mutant slab is one of passion, lust, and at times, fury. Mullaghmore is one tough bitch, and only those dedicated to taking the beatings necessary to find 'the one' will come close to taming her.
Tom Lowe knows this better than anyone, opening 'Mordros' with an account of his worst wipeout followed by the best paddle wave he's ever caught there (see 2:15). Click in to have one of England's finest sons give you his take on the U.K's most menacing set-up—and if you don't believe us, the wipeout at 3:53 should convince you.
PS: Mordros, meaning 'sound of surf' in Cornish, is a fitting title given Mullaghmore's tendency to gurgle off the bottom. If you ever wanted a real-world litmus test for Van's Surf Boot's, watch how Tom navigates Mullaghmores steps and boils in the things.
