Rosnowlagh Beach: remembering David North

Last November we lost a friend and fellow kitesurfer, David "Baba" North. David died while launching his kite at Rosnowlagh beach, Co. Donegal. He was thrown into the rocks and died instantly.

On November the 20th, we are meeting on Rosnowlagh beach to remember David. If the conditions suit, we could honour him in a way he would have liked, by a great kiting session.

On Saturday evening the local crew will be meeting for a bite to eat and a few pints, and to discuss stories, memories and experiences – hopefully to help prevent something like this happening again.

Everyone is welcome, whether you knew David well or never even met him. It would be great to see a huge turnout from the local and national kitesurfing community to remember a friend on a cold November day.

11am: meet on Rosnowlagh Beach for a moment and to lay a wreath. After that we can travel to the most suitable spot on the day for a session.

Hopefully the wind will suit Rosnowlagh but if not we can travel to an alternative spot. 7pm – A bite to eat, perhaps in Austies in Rosses Point, and a few pints in Harrys.
