How can a person using a wheelchair have fun and be active at the beach?
That´s the question that brought us to kite sports.
A documentary about people coming together and becoming friends to implement within just a few days
an extraordinary project - an outdoor adventure!
Why? Just because they are convinced of an idea.
How it worked out and how Patrick (a beginner in kite sports) managed to fly the kite and do buggy runs withing just 2 day?
We filmed all the ups and down.

There are a lot of people around who spend time outside regularly, for instance people like me having to take their dog for walkies every day, never mind the weather. All of them are well acquainted with the old problem: pants tend to get dirty or damp, and you spend much valuable time with changing clothes before and after your excursion… So now I am very happy indeed to be one of the first proud owners of the brand new Re’s chaps!
Just a flick of the wrist and the chaps cover my clean outfit for the office job. Now all I need is the lead and, of course, the ball, and the morning entertainment for my dog is on its way. Afterwards, when we return both tired out and panting, but satisfied and full of fresh air, I only need to clean up the doggie, take off and hang up the chaps to dry, do a quick mirror-check, and I am off to work.
The chaps can be easily cleaned later by simply brushing them. The chaps definitely passed their hard-core test on Ireland’s beaches, where they had to prove their qualities more than once: they really are waterproof, sturdy, and functional.
I already got the makers of this novelty to promise developing even smarter versions of the chaps. Anyway, I won’t stop whining until I have managed to eke out a solution even for my last personal wheelchair problem!

Who will be lucky enough to soar during their vacation?
Sometimes projects lead to more exciting activities. A photo-shooting and a product test for Rolling Elephants developed into a documentary, into a special made kite buggie for wheelchair users, and – last not least – into a custom made holiday offer for the adventurous!
All the people somehow getting wind of the project were fascinated. So involvement and dedication sprang up, and everyone wanted to try out the buggy and go flying above and along the sandy beach…
In the end the team of JoinUsOutdoors decided without further ado to spread news about their kitebuggy by help of a special holiday offer. We think this a marvellous idea! Wheelchair or not wheelchair – you can check out this fascinating adventure for yourselves now. The Emerald Island Ireland with its breathtaking scenery and beaches offers ideal conditions for such activities, and we are quite sure that your most exciting moments will not take place in the cosy pubs…
Not really everyone will be able to take part, though, as the season is short, and the groups have to be small. So better book soon!
