West Oz Kiteboarding is your first choice for quality Kiteboarding instruction. Our IKO (International Kiteboarding Organisation) accredited coaches are all experienced in kitesurfing, windsurfing and wakeboarding.
Kitesurfing lessons are held at Shoalwater Bay, just 35 minutes from Perth CBD and easily accessed via the Kwinana Freeway and Safety Bay Road.
Kiteboardings' unique combination of power, speed and freedom has seen it become the fastest growing watersport in the world. The same qualities that make it so appealing also make for an intimidating struggle for those choosing to teach themselves the art. West Oz prides itself in creating a safe and rewarding learning experience. Our goal is to see students become competent kiteboarders and quickly and as safely as possible. We have a range of lessons available, ranging from a 30 minute kiteboarding taster to advanced lessons.
What seperates West Oz from the other schools?
Experience - Only fully qualified IKO Kitesurfing Instructors, with a minimum of 3-4 years experience. There are currently some so called instructors who have only been kiting for a few months themselves, our instructors are well experienced, so you can learn with confidence. Our head instructor has 4 years experience with kiteboarding as well as 12 years windsurfing and 8 years wakeboarding. Both sports which have a big bearing on teaching methods.
Safety - West Oz Kiteboardng has a rescue boat on hand and our instructors are first aid trained, plus we use headzone communication equipment (including helmets and audio system to stay in constant contact with you). Also our choice of location for teaching is one of the safest and most beautiful beaches in Australia. Equipment - West Oz uses only the latest 2007 model 4 line inflatable kites and twin tip kiteboards.
