Easkey said, Being a part of a film like Waveriders, documenting Irish surf history was an opportunity I couldn’t miss. with my family the pioneers of Irish surfing since the 1960’s it was great to be able to get involved. Surfing at the Cliffs of Moher for the first time was a little scary, and also one of the biggest rushes of my life! And now I’ve got a taste for more.
“Waveriders effortless portrays surfing’s spirit of adventure and community, making the film as much about nature, in both the human and geographical context, asit is about the sport. Conroy creates a genuine desire to throw on a duffle coat and run for the blissfully unspoilt Irish coasts. As Slater comments, ‘Ireland’s a rather cold paradise.’ ” -Huck magazine
