Although the action footage is impressive, it becomes repetitive, exposing the rest of the movie as something of a ragbag. Surfing fans may be more enthused.
Slightly waffly paean to Irish surfing, rescued by the always awesome sight of waves as high as the screen, and consummately skilled, tanned blokes turning them into a canvas.
Strictly for wave fans.
It's an entertaining and thought-provoking take on a sport, and a lifestyle, whose identity and history is increasingly under threat from commercial interests.
Initially, Waveriders looks like surf porn, but quickly reveals itself to be the story of the sport's unlikely genesis.
The first essential surf movie since Riding Giants.
The sensational footage of surfers barrelling through 50ft waves provides most of the appeal. But Joel Conroy's documentary is full of scrapbook curios.
Some awe-inspiring big-wave action.
It's a tall tale that suggests the teller has swallowed the Blarney Stone whole.
The footage of the tiny figures riding these ferocious 50ft monsters goes past awe-inspiring into something almost indefinable.
Riding Giants covered much of the same ground in 2004 - and did it better.
A few spectacular waves and a bit of interesting history is not enough to sustain a feature-length film. So it is probably just surf fans who will think Waveriders is swell.
