Reviews

Documentary examining the semi-Irish roots of today's worldwide surfing phenomenon. The film explores the little-known story of George Freeth, the son of an Irishman, who re-introduced the ancient Polynesian art of wave riding in Hawaii in the early 1900s after it had been stamped out by missionaries. By the time of his untimely death at the age of 35 he was renowned for his legendary skills as a surfer and lifeguard. The film also features footage of Irish and British surfers in action along with world champion Kelly Slater, soul surfer Kevin Naughton and the renowned Malloy brothers as they ride some of the most exciting surf ever seen in Ireland, including a monster 50-foot wave off the coast of Mullaghmore in Sligo.

The film is a nice wrap up of how far we've come since the beginning of modern surfing. Nice stories from a number of generations who have experienced different waves with different styles and technology, each as fulfilling as the last.

Even if you have no interest in surfing this is a remarkable story about the origins of the sport. Shot on 35m, the cinematography is truly jaw dropping and when you think of the shooting conditions even more remarkable that the imagery is so stunning.
A real find.....go watch it.

Interesting telling of the history of surfing and well worth the watch even if you are not into surfing to see how it all came about.
