The IKSA is Ireland’s governing body for the sport of kitesurfing. The IKSA represents kitesurfing and kitesurfers in Ireland and is run by a group of dedicated volunteers from throughout the Irish kitesurfing community. Run by kiters to look out for kiters, it’s a fantastic organisation to be a part of.

The IKSA is there for us to encourage community, by simply organising meetups on Ireland’s beaches – where we can have a burger, meet other kiters and best of all: go kitesurfing – or more structured events like improvers weekends or competitions.

The IKSA is also there to look after our local kiting spots, to represent us if there is issues with local councils and to spread awareness of our up and coming sport.

Finally, and possibly the most important of the IKSA’s tasks, is to provide us with insurance for when we are out kitesurfing. Meaning if something goes wrong the IKSA has got your back, alleviating you of potential financial repercussions.

All this for €45 – BigStyle strongly encourages every kiter to join either the IKSA or whatever equivalent you find in your respective counties.
