We were in Ireland for the KSP World Tour Aer Lingus Pro at the end of October based at Achill Island on the West Coast and hosted by Pure Magic.
Unfortunately we got skunked with wind and waves meaning there was no final result. After 2 no results this year in Portugal and now Ireland and with no prize money on offer for the Maui event, this signals the end of Lee's World Tour campaign for 2012 with him currently lying in =13th on the IKA rankings.
Over the winter Lee has some exciting video projects planned. Like his athlete page on Facebook to keep up to date with whats going on in Pastys World by clicking here
Despite the lack of wind and waves for the comp, we still found a couple of gems and had a lot of fun!
Thanks to Joe Cockle www.jnpevents.co.uk for the pics

Lee is now back in Cornwall running kitesurfing lessons at Gwithian and Marazion after his 3 week adventure in Portugal for round 1 of the 2012 KSP World Tour.
Unfortunately the wind did'nt play ball after Lee dominated his Round 1 heat advancing straight to a round 3 match up with 2008 World Champ, Mitu Monteiro from Cape Verde. After hanging around all week, with the wind teasing and numerous heats starting and stopping, the event finally ended without a result as there were still 2 heats left to run in round 2.
Some great waves were had both surfing and kiting at some of Portugals numerous World class spots, with Lee making the most of being away from Cornwall in the sun and having the van to get around, taking with him some of the best kitesurfers and surfers in the World, such as Ozzie wiz kid, Keahi de Aboitiz and former ASP Top 44 surfer Pedro Henrique from Brasil.
Check out the small vid from the trip below.
Next up for the tour is Mauritius in September and you can be there amongst it while enjoying a week of top class coaching from Lee and 2011 womens One Eye Pro winner, Ninja the week before the event. More details in the Holiday pages
