Location

West Oz Kiteboarding run kiteboarding lessons in Safety Bay and Shoalwater from November to March (weather dependent). The bay lies wholly within the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park, a pristine habitat for a rich variety of birds and marine life centred on Penguin Island.

With crystal clear water, cross shore breezes and no boats, swimmers or obstacles, Shoalwater really is the best location in Perth for your kiteboarding lessons. Just 35 minutes from Perth CBD.

Kiteboarding Lessons

West Oz Kiteboardingis your first choice for quality kiteboarding instruction. Instructors are qualified through IKO and have extensive windsurfing, wakeboarding and kitesurfing experience. All of our lessons are personal with a maximum of 2 students per instructor (excluding Have a Taste which is a group session).  Being a small business, Jason ensures that all of our instructors follow our guidelines when teaching.  We have been doing this for 14 years now and have a reputation for the highest quality lessons....plus we offer you a rebate if you purchase gear from us after your lessons (see more info here).

Kitesurfing lessons are held at Shoalwater approx 35 minutes south of Perth WA (for directions see location). Our season for lessons is between November and March.

Kiteboarding's 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 kiteboarding taster to advanced lessons.

What separates us from other schools?

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 14 seasons 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.

Our Instructors

West Oz Kiteboarding is the only IKO (International Kiteboard Organisation) accredited school in Western Australia. Other schools may have IKO 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 the strict standards of the IKO (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.

Gear Rebate

An incentive we initiated, after you do your lessons with West Oz Kiteboarding we offer you a rebate (up to $500) off a new kite + board + harness package.
