Richard Branson Kitesurfing in Noosa
The team at Adventure Sports recently had the pleasure of taking Sir Richard Branson on a downwinder in Noosa on the Sunshine Coast.
The whole family enjoyed planning the event, including a visit to Makepeace Island to finalise the logistics with our regular visitor and former student Brett Godfrey. Our youngest son, Liam (15) likened it to planning a covert op (video game style).
George joined the guys for a quick helicopter flight from Makepeace Island to Stumers Creek at Coolum where the team from Adventure Sports had everything set up ready for the downwinder to Castaways Beach.
We really want to thank our local kite crew who were fantastic, in true Aussie style; giving Sir Richard the chance to enjoy the pristine Noosa coastal downwinder with the same freedom they enjoy year round. Liam, George and Fiona all joined Sir Richard and Brett for some consistent SE winds and favourable wave conditions, while Rachel and Simon kept an eye on us from the beach.
Sir Richard was very gracious and we all enjoyed meeting him and show casing just a little piece of the kitesurfing paradise Noosa has on offer.
