Fall has officially arrived as well as the first real swell of the season. It was time for the Billabong Adventure Divison team, Benjamin Sanchis and Justine Dupont to head to Mullaghmore in Ireland.

If Sancho knows the spot well and scored the bomb of the morning session yesterday, it was a first time for Justine Dupont. Even if she was intimidated by the spot she gave it a go and scored good waves and a few wipe outs to make the mission complete. The Session turned into a paddle session in the morning and Sancho got his first paddle waves over there. It was pretty intense to paddle these waves (not jet-ski assisted), but he got a few good ones sharing the line up with local legend Fergal Smith, WCT surfer Michel Bourez and a tight crew of local chargers.

An afternoon session came to conclude a 9-hours day in the water at what many consider the best big wave in Europe.

Stay tuned for more pictures and videos coming from the paddle and tow-in waves of the day.
