Surf’s up.

Documentary filmaker Ross Whittaker writes:

Tonight is the long awaited (by me) Irish TV Premiere of the surf film we made, Betweeen Land and Sea.

It follows a year in the life of surf town Lahinch [County Clare} and features some very unique, brave and sound people.

Between Land and Sea on RTÉ Two at 10.15.

Hanging too loose.




Surfers and bodyboarders can coexist.

Thomas Gillespie writes:

This [above] is a picture of Daniel Skajarowski bodyboarding the Cliffs of Moher [Burren, Co Clare] a couple of days ago. Bodyboarding is a sport where you surf waves by lying down. sometimes there is a rivalry between bodyboarders and surfers but ireland is one of the few places in the world where we all get along.


Thrashin’ stuff in fairness.

So Gearoid McDaid from Strandhill, Sligo has gotten through to the grand final of the U18 Eurojunior ’14. Finals are expected to run later this afternoon. watch him go for gold (live) here.

Here’s Gearoid in action last April.

UPDATE: Laura adds:

Gearoid finished 4th in his heat. It’s a great result for Ireland and the team came 5th overall.
