It is the pure passion for the Sport which brought them together to open the Kite Surfing shop, school in Dublin & then the lodge in Achill Island. I asked Catherine about their expansion plans and was a bit surprised (but happy) with her reply. They are not planning to expand in the near future. She said that it is not about just making money, but it’s about the passion of teaching & imparting the experience of water sports to customers. So they are very clear about their focus area: to give great experience for each & every customer.

back on down the track. It harks back to the old days a bit where you used pen and paper and is designed to enable deeper connections between fans. I’m all for technology and being on my phone at games checking scores and stats but this is a bit stripped back and I thought it would be a fun project that would resonate with fans which it has done so and more!” Continue reading Time to Rewind : GameDay Ground Hopper: Vintage Fan Engagement Tool
World Cup 2018 : One of the best World Cup tournament played in the recent past.
It all started with Iceland holding Argentina. Germany had to exit at the group stage. Portugal and Spain the next casualties. Iran and Morroco got everyone’s attention. Host nation Russia also stretched their opponents and reached the Quarter finals.
Finally it came down to four teams Belgium, England, Croatia and France.
England with their young squad finished fourth. Well played England.
Belgium secured the 3rd spot. The Red Devils played excellent football and they were my favorites.Great come back against Japan. Thrilling encounter with Brazil. But one error and they lost the semi final against France. They signed off in style winning their final encounter against England.
Croatia who were considered the underdogs are one Win away from scripting history in the Football World Cup. They defeated Argentina, Nigeria and Iceland in the group stage. This was followed by three knock out matches all of which went in to extra time which adds up to 90 minutes of extra time. So it is like they have played one match extra. Players should have been hit with fatigue but none of the players have shown even a glimpse of that.
Croatia will play their final World Cup 2018 match on the 15th of July, 2018. A Win against France will make sure that Croatia will be part of the elite list of World Cup Winners. Till now only 8 countries have managed to win the World Cup.
Probably this might be the last World Cup for both Messi and Ronaldo. Their El Classico fights will continue but the World Cup clash is going to be an elusive one for these two players who probably will have the biggest fan following.
But this 19 year old : Kylian Mbappe Lottin (the costliest teenager signed by any club – currently playing for Paris Saint Germain on loan from Monaco FC) showed the World that age or experience does not matter when it comes to showcasing your skills. He played with ease and with great maturity. Mbappe definitely will feature on all the newspaper headlines tomorrow. What a way to announce your arrival on the big World arena…!!! Continue reading World Cup 2018 : France unleashed a 19 year old & he was too hot to handle for Argentina
Will they be as interesting as expected or will it be a one way traffic ? Are we going to witness the magic of Ronaldo and Messi ? The star names of France, Uruguay, Argentina and Portugal will shine tonight ? This night will witness a new star emerging from the shadows of super stars ? Will the matches go to extra time and penalty shootout?
Did the Algerian players take offence? Not at all, Merzekane says. “We weren’t angry, we were cool,” he says. “To see two big powers debasing themselves in order to eliminate us was a tribute to Algeria. They progressed with dishonour, we went out with our heads held high.”
“Our performances forced Fifa to make that change, and that was even better than a victory,” Belloumi says. “It meant that Algeria left an indelible mark on football history.” Continue reading World Cup : Disgrace of Gijon : Reason behind the final group games starting at the same time
The question, which I felt was similar in magnitude to which Morocco would have felt when they conceded an own goal against Iran in the dying minutes of their first match, similar to the way Colombia felt when they conceded their first goal against Japan, similar to the way Argentina felt when they lost their match against Croatia, thrown at me was by none other than by my mother.
“Well begun is half done” ..this may not hold true for majority of the top ranked teams in the on going Football World Cup. Countries like Iceland, Japan and Senegal have shown the World that anything can happen in 90′ and even Champions can be beaten. Some may say that these countries were lucky or it was bad luck of the higher ranked countries who … Continue reading World Cup 2018 : Group Stage 1st Round : Top teams face hurdles

“30 seconds is all it takes to let go of your fear and take the leap.
It is all over , even before you realize that you’ve jumped from a 200 ft high bridge. But it takes couple of minutes for the feeling to sink in & become conscious of the fact that you have dared to do this ‘extreme sports’, when the swing comes to a slow stop.
The whole experience will stay with you for a life time.”
(July 2017) The moment I realized that I will be daring to jump of a bridge with just a string of ropes holding me together was a scary thought.
In the first place, I was not planning to do the jump and was not even going to join the group who had to travel almost an hour to reach the location. But I knew that this is going to be a once in a life time ‘dare to do’ opportunity (I know about people for whom bungee jumping and other adventure sports are just like turning the page of a book but trust me it is not an easy decision if you are not an adventure enthusiast).
I was put up in Athens and the Bungee jumping location was at Corinth Canal – which is one hour’s drive from Athens, Greece.
‘Zulu Bungy’ – the organizers of Bungy / Bungee jumping in Corinth Canal looked very pumped up to help us with the Jump. It is very crucial for the organizers to show that they are in control and make you feel comfortable. This will help gain the much required Confidence.
Zulu Bungy : the spot where right below you is the scenic water body whose magnificence will captivate your heart and in front of you the open sky that welcomes you to fly. The sound of the subtle breeze is the only thing that you will hear before the jump.
