DVD Release For ‘Waveriders’
20 Jul 2009 :
Waveriders
‘Waveriders’, the IFTA winning documentary which tells the previously untold story of the unlikely Irish roots of the worldwide surfing phenomenon and today’s pioneers of Irish big wave surfing, is set to be released on DVD on 7th August.

The film, directed by Joel Conroy, boasts a distinguished cast of world-renowned Irish, British and Irish/American surfers including May Borthwick, Easky Britton, Gabe Davies, Richard Fitzgerald and journeys full-circle from Hawaii to California and back to Irish shores following George Freeth’s wave of influence.

Written by Joel Conroy and Lauren Davies and produced by Margo Harkin, the journey reaches a spectacular climax when the surfers conquer the biggest swell ever to have been ridden in Ireland, visually catching monster waves of over fifty feet thanks to the skills of director of photography Daniel Trapp.

Also included on the DVD are a selection of interviews, wipeouts, surfing footage, photographs and the film trailer.

The film, which won the George Morrison Feature Documentary at the 2009 IFTAs, was financed by the European Union through the Interreg IIIA Programme managed for the Special EU Programmes Body by the ICBAN Partnership, Northern Ireland Screen, The Irish Film Board / Bord Scannán na hÉireann, BBC Northern Ireland and the Broadcasting Commission of Ireland.
