Jervis bay retreat Great 3-day kite retreat. Very good teaching, even though conditions were rough, with lots of waves. Very calm and understanding teacher, giving an incentive to find the answer to your question yourself ! Not many kite instructors do that !! But you learn and understand better that way, so thumbs up ! He even gave me the envy to learn the theory behind kiting !

Awesome day It was amazing to make so much progress in a 2hr session. I had done two days of kiteboarding 10 years ago but forgotten everything - Alan got me up to speed quickly and got me in the water. Live feedback and instruction via the radio helmet was a real breakthrough that enabled me to get up and going in a very short space of time. I also really appreciated his attention to safety processes and his genuine desire to ensure that if I went out by myself in future that I would have the right skills to keep myself safe.

Learning Kiteboarding At 60 I was surprised when my sons gave me beginner Kiteboarding lessons for my 60th birthday. With trepidation, I booked my first lesson with Alan at KBL. The first lesson left me feeling this was a sport I wanted to learn. I’m still learning to fly the kite on the beach, have done some body dragging and one boat lesson on the path to riding the board. I’m taking it slowly, and look forward to becoming competent with the kite and kite.

KBL Sydney is the bom.com Awesome team of instructors, loads of support around the lessons too, plus they guided and streamlined my first kite purchase. These guys do a fantastic job and are excellent instructors - from an ex professional athlete and national champion, that’s a fair review!

Amazing No doubt that these guys know really well about kiteboard, they are very patience from the beginning and explain everything related to the kiteboard dangers and risk and how to prevent it. They have and they provide with all equipment, which is perfect, cause you only focus on learning. About the beach, it's perfect to learn you have always good weather condition.

Exactly what I needed after a break Couldn’t be happier with the lesson. Instructor, equipment, location were all spot on. Got my confidence back up in one session after a break from the sport. Helped that the wind was up too that day :)
