Kite Progression

A  kite tour where progression
is not a choice.

The shallow, sandy water right out the front of our kite center allows everyone at every level enough room to kite just the way they need.

Beginners

Beginners have the luxury of being just a kite-line’s length from the beach and the forever watchful eyes of their full time Instructors. With plenty of room for body dragging, crashing, tangles, spills and then short runs, down winders and free-riding it’s the perfect learning ground to build confidence and practice in a safe location.

Intermediates

Intermediates get the most out of the shallow flat water and constant coaching directly where you kite. The regular down-winders to the Sweet Spot or Long Beach offer huge opportunity to practice edging and kite control.  By the end of the tour, confidence will be high after a 15km lagoon crossing and some tricks under the belt.

Experienced

Experienced riders who are already confident staying upwind and doing some tricks will enjoy the guided kite tours our team lead. Up-winders to deserted islands, down-winders to butter smooth water, long hauls to the Blue Holes and the epic lagoon crossing to Direction Island and back are adventures you can only get with our support boat and local knowledge.

Our experienced and advanced team riders will ensure even the best kiter will learn a new trick or two and have a kiting adventure of a lifetime.
