#Kitesurfing - A new surf school in Rosslare opening in mid June aims to get the Irish hooked on kiteboarding, as the Wexford People reports.

Taking heed of the success of events like this past weekend's Battle for the Bay, and his first school in Duncannon established in 2009, Niall Roche's latest venture is Hooked on Rosslare.

The "full-offering watersports centre" will provide lessons not only in kitesurfing and stand up paddle boarding but also windsurfing, kayaking and sailing.

What's more, the centre also hosts a water park buoyed off Rosslare Strand for the summer months.

And it's not even the only initiative on Roche's plate this summer, as he and his wife Christina are organising the Irish National Kite Surfing Championships in Duncannon on 14 August.
