Kite Boarder X

Inspired by the winter Olympic sport of Boardercross, the KBC Tour is a global competition open to all levels of kiteboarders, both professionals and amateurs.

Riders compete in four-man heats around a course of banked turns, and perform jumps over buoys. The largest jumping module is two meters high.

Because safety is at the core of this event, most riders are eligible to participate. To enter, riders must be able to stay upwind, perform a turn and a simple jump in both directions while abiding by the safety rules. Standard kiteboard equipment with twin tip boards and kites of any brand or model is allowed.

Battle For The Bay Event In Association With -

Dollymount, Ireland – 20th – 21st May 2017


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.
