The Goat Surf Club is about more than surfing, but that doesn’t mean the crew can’t dedicate quality time to finding the best surf spots on their trip to Ireland. In episode three of the new series from filmmaker Roo Smith, the three friends battle strong wind and cold waters off the Irish Coast before meeting up with the Old Irish Goat Society. The organization’s endangered goat herd is helping mitigate wildfire potential through conservation grazing in Mulranny, a village in County Mayo.
