Weather/ Wind conditions:

Bikini and rainjacket? Suncream or umbrella? A 14m for sunny seabreeze or a 5m for megastrong storms? The answer is easy:

TAKE EVERYTHING YOU CAN!! Because in Ireland you can have the 4 seasons in the same day. Generally May-June can be very nice…but in Ireland the rain is as famous as the guinness!! Similarly for kites it is always windy here but between a 12-40knots seabreeze, it is impossible to predict! Just check the forecatst few days before. Side, Cross, Off-shore winds? Again there, we can have all the direction so this will be the surprise!!

Dollymount, Ireland – 20th – 21st May 2017

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.
