Achill Island, Ireland – October 20, 2012: Wind and swell maps are calling for a potentially ideal scenario of strong winds and large surf starting early Sunday morning, day 3 of the 10 day holding period of the Aer Lingus Kite Surf Pro Ireland. Preparations are underway for a long day of competition tomorrow.

“Local riders like Ryan Coote are saying that this is exactly the type of forecast they normally look for,” said KSP live stream commentator Ben Meyer. “We anticipate starting the contest as early as possible tomorrow to take advantage of the expected conditions.”

KSP riders kept busy today at Keel Beach, Achill Island’s most popular kite spot, where a small expression session was held for local media and the public to get a glimpse of what can be expected when the main competition begins. On the men’s side, Matchu Almeida Lopez (CPV, North) took the win with a big un-hooked full rotation 360 over Keahi De Aboitiz (AUS, Cabrinha) and Airton Cozzolino (ITA, North). Kari Schibevaag (NOR, Ozone) took the win over fellow female competitors Milla Ferreira (BRA) and Lilian Malschaert (NED) with a big strapless air.

An earlier than usual riders meeting will be held tomorrow morning in hopes of getting the event started without delay. Tune in to www.kspworldtour.com/live at 9:30am Ireland time for a first possible start of Men’s Round 1.
