Trying to save sharks and rays in Ireland May 17, 2016

Tralee Bay, Co. Kerry is a special place. Though I spent the summers of my youth there ‘lost in the sea’, I never knew that stingrays, undulate rays and angel sharks swim here to breed, possibly from as far away as Africa.

Spring Magic – short surf film December 24, 2015

A short surf film about this time of the year when people and the natural world seem to glow. Sorry it took me so long to get around to it.. Happy Christmas everyone, Ken..
