Kite-surfing Lessons Perth

25 reviews for 6 Hours Beginner Package (3x 2H Lessons)

  1. Curt Hofmann

    Christian is the kite board instructor who brings a wealth of knowledge to the sport and instils safety above all else . You will learn and love this amazing sport and above all be safe as you get better and better and his instruction .

  2. Bryan O’Carroll

    Had three lessons with Christian and was very impressed with the whole experience! His video’s give a massive insight into what to expect and prepare for before the lessons. So you dont waste much time in getting to the practical side of things!! Highly recommend! The whole experience was simplified and hassle free! Cheers Christian

  3. Ian Todd

    Awesome intro to kitesurfing. Very knowledgeable instruction, did a great job covering both safety and riding technique.

  4. Matt Burke

    I would definatley recommend Christian and his business Kite Bud. He took me from a nervous novice to someone who could quite confidently set up and kite after the 8 hour package. He is very patient and thorough throughout the course and can also recommend plenty of good kiting places away from Perth.

  5. Jordan Moore

    Great lessons from start to finish! Very safety first approach wich is always a plus. Tailored to suit all skills and ability from different sporting backrounds, and over all was a enjoyable experiance! Thanks Christian

  6. Julien Chaplier

    I took 6 hours to learn the basics and am very happy with training. There’s a lot of focus on safety and was glad I could practice a bunch of emergency procedures. The videos and web content available with the training save at least 1 hour of training, maybe 2. They are of great value. Training can be done in French or in English

  7. Amy Ware

    What I loved about learning to kite surf with Christian is that he teaches you from the ‘bottom up’ in a very structured way. Don’t expect to be riding a board in your first couple of hours of lessons like other schools advertise. He teaches you the essentials first with a key emphasis on safety, enabling you to be an independent kiter who can get yourself out of trouble and back home safely, without loosing your board. I highly recommend KiteBud to anyone wanting to try this incredibly rewarding sport.

  8. Phill Lau

    Christian is a highly attentive and patient instructor who will help establish a solid foundation for you to go out kiting on your own safely and with proper technique. He provides a helmet with the earpiece which makes a world of difference in the quality of instruction (compared with the first lesson I had with a different kite school where the instructor was trying to shout over the wind). Highly recommended!

  9. Richard Hague

    I would highly recommend Christian / Kitebud to anyone who is looking to have a positive kiting experience and who wants to be able to confidently go off and be a safe beginner in the sport! His teaching and lessons have helped me immensely and his teaching and personalised feedback style is what kiting has been missing. In addition to this, he is affiliated with Airborne Kitesurfing and can score great discounts on gear which can offset the lesson costs! Will definitely be back for more advanced lessons in the near future!

  10. Bradley Utting

    As a teacher myself i would highly recommend Christian. He is very knowledgable, breaks the content down well and modifies lessons based on the individuals needs. He has a common sense approach and covers key safety aspects, getting you to a level where you can safely practice on your own.

  11. Ben Caz

    This was my first experience kitesurfing, I didn’t anticipate that I would enjoy it as much as I did and after finishing my 3 lessons I would highly recommend Kitebud for anyone interested in the sport. Christian was a great instructor, he was patient and calm, he conducted himself in a professional manner and at all times I felt completely safe under his instruction. I have had the best experience and I now feel confident to practice and progress independently with the basics. Thanks, Christian!

  12. Andrea Paparini

    Thanks Christian. What a great experience! this course is as good as it gets. I would recommend it to anyone. The gear was top quality, in excellent conditions and up to date. The helmet with the radio transmitter is essential for learning quickly and safely. Christian was committed, mindful of safety and very well organised. I could not be happier.

  13. Nick Pontin

    I had no previous kite experience, but within 3 lessons I was riding both directions, upwind! More importantly, Christian gave me a thorough understanding of all the essential aspects of kitesurfing from safety skills, to set up and pack down and buying gear. The video lessons really helped simplify things and left more time for hands-on practice during my lessons. I’m now equipped with the skills to pursue the sport independently AND safely. Thanks Kitebud, I’ll see you on the water!

  14. Jamey Swarts

    I had an amazing time learning to kitesurf with Silvia – I had 3, 2hr sessions that equip me with everything I need to know, to allow me to safely practice on my own – Sylvia also gave me a lot of advice on what gear would be most appropriate for my weight & strengths.

  15. Viviane Trottier-Picard

    If you’re looking for a place where they’ll make sure you learn quickly in a safe environment, that’s the kitesurfing school for you. Thanks to the videos, you don’t sit on the beach on your first lesson learning the theory. The headsets are sooo useful to get the feedback while on your kite instead of trying to understand somebody yelling in the wind. I progressed heaps faster than I thought I would. They’re not trying to rip you off, they’re patient and they make sure you won’t kill yourself or somebody else. You’ll understand what you pay for. The drive to Shark Bay was definitely worth it and I’ll probably get more lessons in Perth. Props Chris and Sylvie, j’vous en dois une!

  16. Jonah Riley

    Great experience. They teach you not only how to KiteSurf, but how to KiteSurf independently. As well as providing all necessary gear for every condition.

  17. Nathalie CHAY

    Awesome Kitesurfing school !!! The spot is amazing ! Very professionnal and friendly instructors. Thank you so much Christian and Sylvie ! Would recommend to anyone who wants to learn how to kite !!!

  18. Peter Lewis

    Hi All , the comments by Travis i absolutely have to agree with , the lessons about safety and recovery cannot be understated.. Yes for sure we all want to get out on the water with the new skills learnt. I’m in my fifties and a bit of an adventure junkie, had a few reservations about being out there with only a kite to bring you back and how to get a can out and recovery sorted but when its all explained, taught and practiced it brings a whole new confidence . Well done Christian and Sylvie for such a professional approach.

  19. Alison Testa

    I highly recommend Kitebud! I had 3x2hr lessons with Sylvie – she is an awesome instructor!! I progressed heaps and had so much fun. They are very organised with pre lesson training videos and progress summaries so you make the most of lesson time. I did some lessons in the river a couple of years ago but Kitebud lessons were incomparably better.

  20. Adrien Hunter

    Great teacher, I got a lot out of the lessons, was taught all the essential safety things, would recommend

  21. Travis Barnes

    I received a 3 x 2hr package from my partner for Christmas with Kitebud. I had no real kiteboarding experience except for a bit of time with a trainer kite. Sylvie took me through all the safety and preparation parts in the beginning. Like most learners I just wanted to get on the board but the preparation paid off in a big way. I was on the board by the end of the second lesson……well I stood up and fell off a fair bit which isn’t that unusual. The good news was I was able to body drag back up wind and collect the board and safely return to shore. It turns out all the preparation is very important. Trust me after you stack it’s really reassuring that you can rescue yourself. By the end of the third session I was managing to get up and actually kite for about 50m ( well it felt like that anyway) and safely return to shore and land the kite. I was very happy with the gear and the tuition. Kitebud gets a big thumbs up from me and they have a great reputation in the kite surfing scene. The package of videos, kite gear, experienced instructors and top learning location was awesome. Thanks guys for providing such a positive learning experience. I’m hooked and already seeking out my kite to carry on with this addiction.

  22. Martyn Griffiths

    I Booked a preseason 3 lesson package with Kitebud. Excellent tuition from both Sylvie and Christian. The communication and in depth knowledge of kiteboarding and the way in which this is all put across makes learning a breeze. So much so I decide to book one more lesson, with just 4 lessons I was managing to start kiting up wind (Not too stylish must add ) ? If you are after a kite school and instructors with years of knowledge, experience and teaching in kiteboarding I would highly recommend KITEBUD ?

  23. Dylan Melsom

    Christian is very professional and very friendly. He was totally comprehensive in teaching the fundamentals, particularly in terms of safety, which has given me the confidence that I can go out on the water myself and know what to do if I get in trouble. In 2 lessons, he had me up on the board and very confident with the kite. The location at Point Pinnaroo is also perfect for learning. You won’t be disappointed!

  24. Rudi Terblanche

    Enjoyed my lessons with Kitebud, professional and effective thats after lessons on the swan that left a lot to be desired. Thanks

  25. Julia Walter

    I had lessons with both instructors, Christian and Sylvie. Right from the start I had a very good feeling as Kitebud prepares you for your first lesson with online tutorials. So before touching the equipment for the first time you have a good knowledge about it already. The lessons have been great, as both of them are very patient and skilled instructors. After each lesson you receive a written feedback as well as pictures and videos from your progress-amazing!
