By August 23, 2015Hooked Kitefest

An event Kitesurfers across Ireland love failed to deliver the perfect windy conditions we have been having all summer, over 50 Kitesurfers descended on Duncannon on Friday evening knowing the wind forecast but still came for the buzz and social scene that Kitesurfers bring to Kitefest,

Francois from Pure Magic watersports got the musical end of things going

Newly crowned British Kitesurfing Championship winner Sean Murphy from Waterford (the beach warden’s favorite) decided to get toed by a speed boat with his kite and was 30meters in the air wowing the crowds,  it was pretty special to see it,

The kids had an absolute blast in the kids zone and were entertained all day, the craic moved onto Roches Bar Saturday evening where the masses danced until the wee hrs,  10 knots of wind arrived sunday evening just enough for the kids to have a blast on the water,

Trevor from Cobb BBQ went SUP fishing and caught 6 trout and lashed them on the BBQ,
