 BY DAY

The idea of the event is to have as much fun as possible. So bring your friends, your family, to enjoy an amazing extreme water show and have a great day on the beach! Demonstrations of new toys will be organised thanks to our Watersport partners…it will be the best chance you have to try out what’s hot or ask the pros from some reviews!

If you want to learn about the sport, powerkite and SUP introductions will be offered by qualified instructors.Who knows, you could be competing by next year! There will be a live music stage with great Djs playing all day long providing the soundtrack to the day. And there’ll be plenty to eat at the Food Village. Plus Funfair Attractions and a Kids Zone for the kids. So bring your picnic blanket, swimming trunks and suntan lotion (and maybe an umbrella just in case) and come down to the beach!

WHERE

The event takes place on Dollymount Beach at Bull Island, Clontarf, Dublin 3. – Google Map

Wind conditions at Dollymount are generally very good, the beach is considered to be one of the best kitesurfing spots in the world! And is on the doorstep of Dublin’s city centre.

It is a magical spot with the beautiful surroundings of the nature reserve at Bull Island and the occasional flaming sunset colors. Shallow waters and 4 km of sandy beaches makes this spot a heaven for kitesurfers. Thanks to the local authorities and the action of IKSA, KItesurfing has been growing there in a very sustainable way and it is with great pride that we try to keep it like that! When the wind dies, Bull Island is the perfect heaven for Stand-up Paddle boarders, cruise around the island, surf the Ferry Wave or Explore the majestic Ireland ‘s Eye!

Keep safe and respect your environment! Please leave no trace.
