#Kitesurfing - "Countless" numbers of vehicles belonging to kitesurfers and other beach users have been broken into on Dublin beaches over the past year, according to the Irish Kite Surfing Association (ISKA).
And as the Dublin People reports, the problem only seems to be getting worse - with three cars damaged and burgled at Burrow in Sutton and Dollymount Strand on Bull Island over the weekend of 12-13 October last.
According to ISKA secretary Nicola Murphy, the latest spate of break-ins occurred despite an additional Garda presence for a kitesurfing event in Sutton that weekend.
And the brazen nature of the broad-daylight thefts has both kitesurfers and local beach users concerned, with tourists among those falling victim to what's being described as a very organised criminal activity.
