Documentarian Ross Whitaker spends a year in Lahinch, a small town on Ireland’s west coast, and the unlikely home of one of Europe’s best big-wave breaks.
This observational feature embeds itself within Lahinch’s surfing community to present a thoroughly engaging and visually stunning portrait of the ever-changing life at land’s end. Against the backdrop of Ireland’s stunning west coast, this film digs deep into the day-to-day lives of the people who live and surf here, taking the audience beyond the bluster of the typical adrenaline-fueled surf film to create an intimate portrait of the diehard group of surfers who want their local wave to be known around the world.
Provides the most exhilarating of big-wave surf footage while also giving a moving, humorous and thought-provoking account of the ocean-going natives of County Clare.
“Where it shines is through its cinematography and the way it captures the thrill of surfing.” ~John Noonan, Filmink
