VERY VERY FAQ
1/ FREE OR NOT FREE EVENT? I AM CONFUSED!!!
Well, do not panic we explain now: we started as a free sport event in 2010 on Achill and we believe No one should pay to see some Kitesurfing and other Sports! especially all our local kid friends of Achill! So everyone is welcome to join us FOR FREE all day long! However, The night time Program has a cost and to bring all these super stars and musicians to Achill, we ask everyone to Participate... Just to cover the cost! Our Mission is to grow this Event and put Achill on the Map of the wildest Event Location ever ( due to the winds )
2/I HAVE KIDS AND I WANT TO COME IN THE EVENING...
No problemo, Kids under 12 come free and as long as there is an adult with any under 18, everyone can enjoy the peaceful and family friendly show. Of course No alcohol for under 18 is permitted
3/ Why did you move the night event it was so cool on the lake? "well, as much as we love the Lake, the event is growing bigger and bigger and with more and more storms and bad weather patterns we decided that the site of the Valley house can be the perfect spot to create something truely crazy, its a very old spooky manor with forest and lake around and our job is to transform it into a night wonderland with many surprises. A Magical forest... full of fairies... We warned you!
4/ One LAST ONE for the craic... IF THE WEATHER IS BAD...i MEAN VERY BAD????
Pfff... For the Watersports we love all sort of conditions: no wind for the surfs/ SUPS and crazy wind for the others so there will ALWAYS be someone happy! Just come prepared!
For the night event,DO NOT WORRY: All the stages are sheltered so you will stay dry and this is why we love the sheltered site of the Valley house, we will be so cosy there, especially near our BBQ!
