BigStyle is all about being out the world getting wet, sunburnt, exhausted, cold and generally just using the outdoors as it’s supposed to be.
We have a kitesurfing school in Dublin city and a SUP school 15 minutes south in sunny Seapoint. These schools run from April until November and compliment each other fantastically – go kiting when there’s wind, go Suping when it’s calm.
In the winter we say goodbye to Ireland for a few months and set up down in Tanzania where we set up our kite and SUP school in warmer climes until Ireland thaws out. We want to create a little home for Irish adventurers to visit all winter long.
As well as teaching these sports we also run all manner of adventures at home and around the world, from Dublin to Mayo to Sri Lanka to East Africa. On these trips we combine learning to do sports with good old fashioned adventure – hiking, cliff jumping, deserted islands, spearfishing, camping, bonfires… all those things we don’t get enough of once we’re grown up.
We’re also really into making videos and writing our journals documenting all the weird stuff we’re getting up to. We also want to feature your stories as well… to start a discussion about the best ways we can spend our time outside of work.
BigStyle’s only a few years old but we’ve got big plans to change the way people in Ireland approach their free time. We reckon it’s high time we get out of bed, off the couch, out of the office and into some bizarre situations.
We hope you guys will be part of the community.
See you in the sea!
