Top class value for your money delivered to your door stop straight away." - John Kenny, Mayo, Ireland

"Really liked Sea Fever, it was great the way the generations were blended together. I thought the tow in sequences were excellent and the story unfolded really well. I really liked the feel of the documentary and I'm delighted to be able to show it to some friends here in the USA as I've been talking about surfing in Ireland for some years and they all thought I was crazy.
I thought this brought all aspects of surfing in Ireland together really well in a very personal manner." - Mike Lovatt - Chicago, USA

"I really enjoyed watching the film and knew little about the surfing in Ireland despite not living a million miles away in Devon. The film was great! DVD was delivered the next working day!" - Blain Bishop - Devon, UK

"I had heard about Aileens before but I didn't realise the sheer scale of it. Sea Fever really opened up my eyes to the big wave surfing scene in Ireland. I never imagined such monster waves were right here on my doorstep in Ireland and I certainly never thought I'd see anyone surfing them. Sea Fever has some eye popping big wave action that is as good as if not better than anywhere in the world and it has certainly made me rethink my attitude to surfing in Ireland - an awesome DVD worth every penny!!
