Portuguese duo embark on "Irish Dreams"

Ireland: there's so much to surf here

When it comes to wave riding, Ireland is always a tricky challenge. In "Irish Dreams," you understand why the Emerald Isle is the go-to test for top performers.

The number of high-end movies, videos and short films coming from Portugal has been increasing pace. Today, filmmakers are able to deliver HD works with budget cameras, and that's good for the sport of bodyboarding.

Pedro Santos Ribeiro has just unveiled his "Irish Dreams," the story of two Portuguese riders, and their appetite for mutant waves, and heavy slabs.

Together, bodyboarder Daniel Fonseca and surfer Lourenço Katzenstein traveled to the land of endless green fields and the energizing Guinness to taste the power of the local Atlantic swells.

They've put the bodyboarding versus surfing rivalries aside to honor their flag and their cold-blooded spirits. Out in the water, they met the local crew and had fun together.

Watch Fonseca and Katzenstein trading barrels with the likes of Tom Gillespie, Gearoid McDaid, Ollie O'Flaherty, and Andrew Kilfeather.
