The best riders in the country and from around the globe will converge on Bull Island on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 May to compete in the first leg of the IKSA tour at what organisers say is one of the best kitesurfing spots in the world.
All ages are welcome to cheer on the competitors, whether taking flight by kite or standing tall on their paddle boards.
Instructors will also be on hand to show you the ropes, while the food village, funfair and biodiversity area means there’s much more than the action on the waters of Dublin Bay.

Doubling as the first leg of kiteboarding's KBC Tour, the weekend will also host contests for stand up paddle boarding - with the action even branching out to the River Liffey tomorrow morning (Sunday 29 May) for the Dublin Bay SUP Classic.
Plus as always throughout the weekend there will be food and entertainment on the beach, including kiting and SUP lessons for kids, as well as beach volleyball and land yachting demonstrations.

Kitesurfers and stand-up paddle boarders from around the world will converge on Bull Island in Dublin Bay from 24-25 May for the annual championships, which are now in their eighth year.
And Galway native McAnena will be making her first appearance at the event, a year after becoming the first woman surfer to take on the infamous 'Jaws' wave in Hawaii.
