Reviews for Waveriders keep rolling in

Sunday, March 15th, 2009

So we’ll admit that we’re pretty humbled by some of the positive reviews we’ve received for Waveriders. When we set out to make this movie we obviously hoped it would hit the right notes. We want you to see our movie. So if you need reviews to convince you, well here you go.

“Entertaining and thought-provoking… creates a genuine desire to throw on a duffle coat and run for the blissfully unspoilt Irish coasts” - Matt Bochenski, Huck Magazine

“Stirring… intriguing” – Tara Brady, Hot Press

“A remarkable film that will be of interest to surfers and non-surfers alike.” - Totally Dublin

“Godzilla waves and surfers gliding down their devastating crests… [Waveriders] explores an unlikely surfing mecca” - Pavel Barter, The Sunday Times

“…overpowering…  deserves to take its place alongside earlier classics such as Riding Giants and The Endless Summer.  The film deserves to be seen on a big screen.” - Donald Clarke, The Irish Times
