All our lessons take place at Pinnaroo Point in Hillarys (Perth Northern Suburbs)

Once you arrive at Pinnaroo Point, park your vehicle in the main car park and walk passed the gate at the end of John Wilkie Tarn. Once on the beach, take a left and walk SOUTH for 130 Meters. There you will find the KiteBud Windsock. This is where all lessons will start and finish.kitesurfing lessons
Our school is CLOSED during the winter months (May to September). We will be open 7 days a weeks starting from the first or second week of October 2019. Book in advance and save by taking advantage of our Early Bird specials!
In order to progress safely into kitesurfing, you need safe and reliable winds. In Perth, the only safe wind to learn is the Sea Breeze (aka Fremantle Doctor) which only blows in the summer months from October to April. Winter winds are generated by storm fronts and therefore are unsuitable and unsafe for learning.

KiteBud will contact you by SMS in the morning (in most cases between 8AM and 9AM) of the day of your lesson to confirm the wind conditions are appropriate. We only ask that you reply to this SMS so we know you got it.

Cancellations sometimes occur due to unsuitable wind conditions (wind can sometimes be too light, too strong or blowing in the wrong direction).

Please note that winds at the start of the season (October) and at the end of the season (April) are usually less reliable. If your lesson gets cancelled we will immediately contact you to re-book it ASAP. There are no fees for rescheduling lessons.
We do get cancellations from time to time, the best place to find out if there are any cancellations is to Like/Follow our Facebook Page Any spare lesson spots that become available are posted on this page right away.
They sure do! Each student will be provided with a harness, kite, life vest,  Bluetooth radio helmet, board, etc.. We have wetsuits available although it’s preferable that you bring your own if you have one.
Simply arrive dressed ready to enter the water and KiteBud will take care of the rest. Bring water, sunscreen, a smile and a sense of adventure!

Please note that KiteBud will NOT take the responsibility to look after your valuables or personal effects before, during or after your lesson.
KiteBud recommends to most students to book at least 6 Hours of lesson  or  8 Hours of lesson to ensure you have enough time to practice getting up on the board.

Please note that for some students 6 Hours might not be enough as each person learns at a difference pace. Your learning pace will depend mostly on your background in other sports, how comfortable and competent you are at controlling the kite and whether you watched the KiteBud videos tutorials or not.

If you are starting from scratch, a 2 Hour or 4 hour lesson will most likely NOT be enough to get you up on the board.

Feel free to contact us if you need help deciding how many lesson you need.
Thanks to major improvements in kitesurfing equipment and modern teaching methods, learning to kitesurf is easier and safer than ever before.

Contrary to popular belief you do NOT need ”big arms” and a strong upper body to kitesurf. The power of the kite is held by your harness so you will be using your core and your leg muscles much more than your arms.

Whether you are 7 or 70 years old, you simply need to be reasonably fit and be able to swim to learn this amazing sport.

We understand not everyone can commit for multiple lessons right away. In this case, simply book a 2H Lesson. We will adapt this lesson to ensure you have as much fun as possible and spend as much time as possible in the water!
If this is your first lesson, KiteBud recommends to show up 20 minutes before the start of the lesson. If this is your second lesson onward, it’s best you arrive 30 minutes in advance to setup the kite.

Unlike in other schools, KiteBud doesn’t like to charge you to get your equipment ready. We like to take this extra time to have a chat and prepare your equipment without rushing. This means that when the lesson starts your kite is already flying!

Our schedule is usually very busy, so most late arrivals result in a shorter lesson duration.
In compliance with the Australian Consumer Law (ACL), KiteBud is not required to offer you a refund if you change your mind. Unused lesson hours can be transferred to another person, used in the next season or be used as store credit. If you wish to reschedule your lesson, please contact us as soon as possible. To find out more, please read our Terms and Conditions.

You may modify/reschedule your booking free of charge if you give us 24 hours or more of notice so we have enough time to find a replacement for you. You cannot make changes or cancel your lesson less than 24 hours before your lesson start. If you do not show up to your lesson (''no show'') or if you cancel it less than 24 hours before the start (last minute cancellation), you will forfeit your entire lesson and will not be able to re-book that lesson.
