Ocean Night

Join Surfrider Humboldt, Humboldt Baykeeper and the Northcoast Environmental Center for a fun and informative movie night! This month features The North Canyon: Nazaré Calling and The Island President.

In October 2011 Garrett McNamara returned to Portugal to explore the giant waves formed by the Nazaré Canyon. This is the story of two month leading up to an incredible ride, told by a group of people who helped to shine light on one of the biggest wave spots in the world.

The story of President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives, a man confronting a problem greater than any other world leader has ever faced - the literal survival of his country and everyone in it. Nasheed brought democracy to the Maldives after thirty years of despotic rule but he is now faced with an even greater challenge: as one of the most low-lying countries in the world, a rise of three feet in sea level would submerge the 1200 islands of the Maldives and make them uninhabitable. A classic David and Goliath tale, THE ISLAND PRESIDENT captures Nasheed's battle to stop and reverse global warming, culminating in his trip to the Copenhagen Climate Sumitt in 2009 .
