Son of an Hawaiian mother and Irish father George Freeth (1883-1919), was responsible for the rebirth of surfing in the early nineteen hundreds. Freeth sent a wave of influence around the world that would eventually return to the shores of Ireland. Waveriders follows this journey, returning full-circle to Ireland to culminate in a dramatic, final sequence.
