It’s like the plot of a Hollywood Movie but the Red Bull Storm Chase that took place off the Donegal Coast at the weekend was very real.
The event is one where eight of the world’s best surfers are on standby for and which only swings into action when a storm of sufficient magnitude is tracked as being about to land.
Time enough is needed to get the competitors and the camera crews together but other than that this is an event which could happen anywhere in the world.
Today’s Daily Video is a preview of the event before it took place, to give some sense of what it was like over the past days off the coast of Magheroarty.
