You have seen some kitesurfing action and itching to experience this adrenaline-pumping sport. It’s time you get some kiteboarding lessons. Kiteboarding is an extreme sport and has its risks and dangers, therefore learning and understanding the safety aspects of this sport is as important as learning the skills of flying the kite and riding the board.
We were students once before. We spent money and had gone through classes/instructors, where each has their own goods and bads. Throughout our learning journey, we picked up skills and methods that helped us master this sport. And we wanted to share our experience with people who want to pursue this sport. And so we embarked on a journey to Australia to get ourselves IKO-accredited as kitesurfing instructors.
It wasn’t easy but we graduated and thus began our role as kitesurfing coaches. Having taught kitesurfing in a busy kitesurf school in Australia gave us a lot of teaching experience and now we share them with our students through our IKO-accredited kiteboarding lessons.
We provide lessons in 2 locations:
- Trikora Beach, Bintan Island (Indonesia) – 2 seasons NE monsoon mid Dec to Mar, SE monsoon mid Jun to Sep
- Tanjung Lompat, Desaru (Malaysia) – 1 season NE monsoon mid Dec to Mar
Basic 4-hour package is SGD 500 per pax (1 student to 1 instructor) or SGD 400 per pax (2 students to 1 instructor).
All kitesurf training gear provided. Fees exclude transport, transfers, meals and accommodation.
All you need is to bring a pair of sunnies, booties, boardshorts & rash guard or t-shirt & loads of sun block.
