Great course!! It was a really great course with Lars!! He was patient but challenged me to do a lot of new tricks! Safety first is what he stands for and that makes the course very comfortable and relaxed. Thanks Lars!! I’m looking forward to the next session!!

Kitesurfing sandgate Lars is a great instructor always patient and enthusiastic. There is a lot more to learn than I expected especially the safety aspect. I think it is very worthwhile being taught the right way to do things first off rather than learning the hard way later on

I did a short refresher lesson with Surf connect at Sandgate, Brisbane after a few years away from kite surfing. Id highly recommend this school as they were friendly and knew there stuff, they also seem to have created a very happy helpful kiting community down in sandgate.

First kiteboard lesson My first lesson on the kiteboard, at Surfconnect Sandgate was made relatively easy by Lars, who was a patient and understanding coach. Handling the kite for the first time definitely brought out some nerves in me, but Lars was patient with me and gave good instructions. Looking forward to more lessons and advancing onto the board
