Arctic Exploring: George Karbus

Main Auditorium , 6pm


Surfer's Ear Pop-Up all day

Medically known as "exostosis of the external auditory canal," surfer's ear is caused by repeated exposure to cold water and wind. Cooling of the ear canal stimulates bone growth that narrows the canal and blocks the eardrum. Joining us from Sweden, founder of Surf Ears Magnus Ekerman will be in the foyer with an ear doctor where you can ask about and get tested for Surfer's Ear.



George Karbus returns to Shore Shots to present the results of his latest expedtion- The Arctic Circle. George has become recognised as one of the best outdoor photographers in Europe. His amazing photographs of Irish landscapes, waves and wildlife are a real tribute to the coastline and the ocean. Do not miss.

Biarritz Surf Gang (2017)

64mins                            Directors: Nathan Curren &   Pierre Denoyel

Biarritz, the early 1980s: surfing isn’t so much a sport as it is an anti-social and borderline criminal activity, the passion of a few long-haired local oiks. Then it all changed: like with most extreme sports, counter-culture passed into regular culture, which catalysed surfing’s development into a high-level sport. For the local surf gang, the days of unspoilt coastlines and isolated surf spots were over – now it was media, crowds and pushy tourists.
