This autumn was pretty amazing weather blue skies and Buckets of swell and mostly light offshore breezes. For the surfing world its been pumping. For the Kitesurfers the winter session so far has been dominated by continoues high pressures that generate crazy wind patterns.
Winds from the North and North East for weeks on end.
We hope you enjoyed our video.

Ryan Coote gets treated to kite surfing one of Ireland's holy grails of surfing locations. Crab Island is one of the best right-handers in Ireland. It is also extremely dangerous and extremely heavy. It is a offshore island surrounded by rocks and massive cliffs. Needless to say there is no happy place to launch or land or even swim in. When you commit to kite surfing a spot like this you have to be fully committed you also have to be fully prepared to ditch everything and swim swim swim. The wind on this day was shifting from cross shore to cross off shore 14 to 20 knots. My 10 meter Reo V3 worked a treat drifting through the sky with ease as I shifted back and forth from wave power to wind power.
This surf spot is for advanced riders only and can get massive very quickly with strong currents. Even though the swell was a nice size the period was very small so the waves lacked some projection.
The season for new beginnings is here. The weather has warmed up and the days along. If you ever had an idea to learn to kite surf now is the time. The wind is warm the ocean claim.
The time is now.
Book a kite surfing lesson for yourself and a friend and get 10% off the cost off the course.
The ocean is waiting to inbrace you and the wind is ready to power you.
You know that special place in your heart where you feel comfortable safe
and in control. My local right hander turned on a few weeks ago it is maybe
one of the best in the country.
So sit back turn up the volume and enjoy the ride.
