kitesurfing. Great great place to learn, staff are always on hand to discuss anything you would like further information on. Not to mention the instructors /particularly Harrison who was my instructor/ are a fountain of knowledge and each of them are more than happy to explain things over and over if needs be and you never feel rushed into doing what it is they are asking of you. Gave me information about some gear i have now got and also some pointers about what differences there may be from what i have been learning on. Always enjoy returning to the school and am looking forward to the next time and no doubt the tome after that and so on. Thanks again everyone at The Surf Connect Waters Sport Centre....see you all soon . Misha

Perfect Instruction Harrison demonstrated his vast knowledge of kite boarding giving clear instructions constantly reviewing with me the process of kitting while engaging in question and answer techniques. He also created a fun and enjoyable learning route focusing at all times my safety and the safety of others Highly recommend him as an instructor.

Fun first kite experience Harrison from Surf Connect is a great teacher. I felt a little nervous about the kite‘s power at first, but he made me feel comfortable so that I really enjoyed my first kite experience. I will definitely continue!

Fantastic experience all-round at SurfConnect in Brisbane. Learning kiteboarding seems a fairly daunting experience when you are in your mid-50’s. I was a little apprehensive on the day due to the gusty conditions. However, Harrison was patient and made it a safe and enjoyable experience. Learnt heaps, gained confidence and never felt out of control. Then to top it off, Padi, the owner, met us on-shore at the end of the lesson with a cup of hot tea. I can’t speak highly enough of the team at Surf Connect in Brisbane. Thanks Harrison and Padi.

Quality Kite Surfing School Surf Connects instructor Harrison may be young in years but his knowledge and attention to detail for the sport is inspiring. His maturity is beyond his years and attention to detail and safety make the lesson interesting and fun.

Cheers to new beginnings Wanting to take the leap to start learning kiteboarding has been a personal goal of mine for some time now. Thanks to surf connect I am well on my way to understanding and improving both my confidence and technique. I am looking forward to undertaking more kiteboarding lessons with surf connect as the wind starts to pick back up.

Recommended extremely highly for everyone! I love the ocean but haven’t ever done any Watersport ( bar swimming). I live by the bay and am always interested in the kite surfers but thought I did not have enough upper body strength. What I learned from a simple enquiry with surf connect was that- I didn’t need upper body strength or a high level of fitness. So I gave it a go. Padi, surf connect owner and Harrison who has been my primary instructor have both been amazing. They have made this sport safe and fun and achievable for me and the community of kite surfers at Sandgate have been so supportive. I have even encouraged my husband and son to learn kitesurfing and they enjoy it too. I was given plenty of opportunities to review safety and new skills and never felt out of my depth, though I was definitely challenged. Thank you Padi for offering IKO certification and thanks Harrison and Padi and The team at Surf connect for a well run supportive and safe fun course. ,

Level 1 kite surfing lesson My instructor, Harrison, was very helpful and informative. Within two hours he’d taught me how to set up the kite, the safety of the kite, the basics of how to control the kite and finally how to pack the kite away correctly. Both Padi and Harrison were very friendly and happy to help would highly recommend as instructors.
