This course to give you a full taste of the kite and board! This is run over 3 days (first day 2.5hr then next 2 days of 2 hour sessions).
Learn the basics of setup, safety, launching/landing, water recovery and flying a trainer kite before we set you up with a 4 line inflatable kite and get you in the water bodydragging with the kite. Max 2 students on your first day as there is a lot of theory involved, before we move onto private tuition once you are in the water.
Refresh over the basics you learnt in your first session and once comfortable bodydragging upwind you will be introduced to the board. This lesson is private one on one instruction with our helmet communication so the instructor is in constant contact with you whilst in the water.
Get you straight into the water from where you left off on Day 2 and start board riding.
Once you have completed this course you will receive an IKO card showing which level you have reached which will allow you to hire kiteboarding equipment anywhere in the world.

West Oz Kiteboarding is the only IKO (International Kiteboarding Organization) School in Perth with all of our Instructors holding this qualification and all have relevant experience before we accept them to teach at our school. We have been running lessons at Safety Bay / Shoalwater for 12 years now and believe you will get more from your lessons with us!
We use Headzone Communication Helmets to speed up your learning process so your Instructor is in constant contact with you PLUS you are learning at the best location to kiteboard (others will claim to be the best but with our cross shore breeze, sheltered waters between the islands and mainland and safe waters surrounded by sandbars and no swimmers/boats/obstacles this really is the BEST LOCATION IN THE WORLD).
Our location of Shoalwater Bay, only 35 minutes south of Perth is the best location in WA for lessons, with its cross shore breeze and sheltered waters from the surrounding islands you will not be blown out to sea or onto shore and there are no boats/swimmers/obstacles so you can just focus on your kite and board.
