ABOUT THE FILM:
In the early 1970s, the world-class waves of Ireland were uncharted waters for the international surfing community. Amidst the conflict of the Troubles, pioneers in both Dublin and Belfast transcended political hostilities to host the 1972 Eurosurf championship. This look into the unsung history of Ireland’s now world-renowned surf scene details the power of sport to bridge any divide.
