A couple of years ago I saw kite surfers off Ballyholme Beach and anytime I was near I would drive by in the hope of seeing them again, especially on good windy days.

I had expected to see them over the summer months but never did and I’d given up, thinking it was now too cold. Then a few days ago, although the temperature had dropped to around 7°c, one appeared.

I had always thought kite surfing was a summer pursuit.
