A kitesurfer caused 2 planes to delay their landing at Arrecife airport on Tuesday. Air Traffic Controllers Teeted the incident saying that the kitesurf was interferring with the approach to the runway.

The kitesurfer was stuck to the approach lights and covering them partially. This is not usually a popular area for kitesurfers bearing in mind the turbulence caused by the planes.
The two flights, one from Belfast and another from Madrid, had to wait for the area to become clear before they could land a few minutes later.
