The IKSA was formed in October 2004 by James Phelan, Alexis Ledoux, Oisin Ryan, Conor Lillis and Kieran Sammon. This is a non profit organisation and run by volunteers, who are trying to promote the sport and make it safe for everyone. Their main objectives are:

  • Promote safe kitesurfing practices
  • Maintain beach access for Irelands kite surfers
  • Promote Competitions and Events with local Kite Schools
  • Provide 3rd party insurance for our members
  • Monitor standards of IKSA kitesurfing instructors
  • Educate the public
  • Forge links with National and International Bodies

Pure Magic has always been very involved in the development of the sport in Ireland and as such has been working closely with IKSA towards the same goal. This is part of the idea of growing a sustainable community and a sustainable development of the sport in Ireland.
