Northern Ireland’s wide sandy beaches provide ideal safe kite surfing locations. Riders prefer onshore winds which mean they have to be prepared to travel to different spots depending on wind direction.

When the wind is from the north they will generally head to the north coast to the Causeway coast beaches and when it’s from the south Tyrella Beach in County Down is the most popular location.
