Kitesurfing on Achill Island.
Achill is one of the best places in the world for kitesurfing, it boasts a blend of spots and conditions to suit all levels of rider and styles of riding.
From perfect flat water lakes to beaches with large waves. And the bonus is it’s generally windy!
While Achill may not be widely known in the watersports world for the haven it is, it is slowly being recognised by world class riders for its potential as a watersports haven, just a short trip from most European cities.
A range of kites can save the day as the island experiences a wide range of wind speeds (often in one day) and Keel lake can provide some great speed sailing as well as offering a safe spot to practice before taking to the swells of Keel beach. Achill Island is the perfect spot for wind driven sports
