We Eat, Sleep & Breathe Kitesurfing!! So why choose us for your lessons and gear:-
From the Beginning
West Oz Kiteboarding has been involved in the sport since the beginning. Riding and teaching since 1999 our experience shows. We have taught thousands of students over the past years and enjoy seeing the majority of those out on the water today.
Our Exclusive Location
West Oz has one of the most exclusive kiteboarding areas in the world. We are the only holder of a permit to teach kiteboarding in the beautiful Shoalwater Marine Park. Crystal clear waters, cross shore breezes, no boats or obstacles and surrounding islands which provide chop protected water allows our students the ability to tap into this uncrowded location in any wind direction.
West Oz Kiteboarding is the only IKO (International Kiteboard Organisation) accredited school in Western Australia and also became accredited with KA (Kiteboarding Australia) in 2016. Other schools may have accredited instructors but our whole school has this accreditation so you receive a certification card through us that you can use to hire gear or continue lessons all around the world, and you can trust that your instructor is fully qualified and experienced to very strict standards (and have met our high expectations also).
Our instructors are the reason so many people speak highly of West Oz Kiteboarding. When you arrive for your kiteboarding lessons you will find the friendliest, most patient and professional people you will ever work with in an instructional environment.
Real Time Coaching
Every kiteboarding lesson is accompanied by a West Oz instructor equipped with Headzone communication gear for "Real time" coaching. "Real time" allows students to learn faster with much more confidence as the Instructor is in constant contact with you whilst you are on the water, talking you through step by step to get you up and riding safely and quickly.
