Product Description

Featuring renowned surfers including world champion Kelly Slater, Kevin Naughton, and the Malloy brothers, Waveriders explores surfing s legendary Irish roots and its surprising influence on today s worldwide surf phenomenon. In this remarkable and awe-inspiring film, writer/director Joel Conroy offers a unique take on the origins of modern surf culture. Through the heroic tale of visionary waterman George Freeth, this ocean adventure traces the pioneer s wave of influence - from Hawaii, to sunny Southern California, to the striking shores of Ireland. With must-see, spectacular wave footage, Waveriders reaches a thrilling climax when today s most prominent and daring surfers conquer the biggest swell ever ridden in Ireland, as they ride monster waves reaching heights of over fifty feet. Winner of multiple awards, including Surfer Magazine's award for Best Documentary at the 2009 Surfer Poll Awards, Waveriders is available to own on DVD for the first time in North American on March 16, 2010.

Review

Surfings cold paradise is what a visibly chilly Kelly Slater wryly calls it, as this raw, heartfelt love-letter claims Ireland is the unlikely spiritual motherland of wave-riding. Just 80 minutes deep and minus the scope and style of Riding Giants, director Joel Conroy s documentary starts gripping hard when it reveals the remarkable life of the original soul-surfer, George Freeth. The son of an Ulsterman single-handedly reignited the ancient art of surfing in early 20th-century Hawaii after it had been outlawed by missionaries and practically invented lifeguarding while he was at it. Springing off this compelling context, Conroy follows the Irish riders who have spent their lives exploring surfing s green hidden gem en route to an extraordinary coda. In 2007, a colossal storm churned up the biggest swell ever to hit Ireland the footage of the tiny figures riding these ferocious 50ft monsters goes past awe-inspiring into something almost indefinable. --Jonathan Crocker, Total Film

I watched this recently at a film festival and thought it was the most fascinating surfing film I have ever seen. As an avid surfer it was very interesting to learn about George Freeth "the father of modern surfing" and his Irish background. Easily deserves to take its place next to Billabong Odyssey. One of these days the largest wave is for sure going to be ridden in Ireland and I hope to be there. Kelly Slater is amazing in this film as our the Malloy brothers. I am ordering my copy now.

SOO interesting, great visuals, and full of action packed scenes of surfing. I really like the story behind surfing because it is one that not many people know or would even think to be true. If your a fan of surfing, or even just great sports films, you must get this movie!

I already pre-ordered, and after having the pleasure to watch it, I can honestly say this is the BEST surf film I've seen in years, if ever, because it is actually about SURFING! You can feel the soul of it.

I love anything that has to do with the ocean and surfing. This documentary WAVERIDERS turned out to be very, very good and gives a an hour long background into the roots of surfing in Ireland and it's impact on a modern day way of life. Of particular interest was the story of a man named George Freeth who came to America, the 'father' of modern day lifeguarding and the inventor of the torpedo buoy who honed his skills to include minimizing loss of life by adopting skills that would be initiated and implemented by the newly trained 'lifeguards' of Redondo Beach. This man also is known for spearheading the sport of water polo and receiving a Congressional medal of honor before succumbing to spanish flu at the age of 35. An unexpected surprise was to see that occasionally, Ireland has GIANT waves and the footage is fantastic of the surfers dropping in on a few of those "icy hollow slabs" with exquisite finesse!

Very enjoyable video for all those who love the surf and the sea!
