Surfers Ride Record-Breaking 50-Foot Waves off the Irish Coast
Last week a group of surfers had the most intense rides of their lives on waves over 50-feet tall off the coast of Ireland, Galding reported yesterday.

Next, in a series of VBS videos I plan to post, is this documentary on a service that offers a simulated illegal border crossing from Mexico into the United States, complete with a shady ‘coyote’ guide and potential arrest.
