Fiji Kite Trip 2017 - Fun Times!

Fiji Kite Trip 2017 - Fun Times!

Two weeks in Fiji chasing waves and wind; what more could the team at Adventure Sports Noosa ask for?

Beachouse Fiji hosted two of our groups over 2 weeks with people travelling from Noosa, Sydney & Adelaide to enjoy the local Fijian hospitality of this unique and genuine location. Andrew and the team looked after us with boat trips to kite, fish and surf along with a few awesome nights of DJ tunes, live music and all night dancing and entertainment.

In the first week we enjoyed an awesome downwinder along the reef hitting Serua left/right, Pipe, Jays and every break in-between. We all rated this in our top 10 ever surf sessions. The video will be ready very soon, so keep an eye on our Youtube Channel or Facebook

The second week was a little lighter wind but the crew were all intermediate riders and really got some great training in the lagoon doing mini downwinders and boat packdowns.

When it wasn't windy, we had some awesome SUP sessions on the Beachouse break with a few guys taking a boat trip to Frigates to surf. We took time out to enjoy lunch at the EcoCafe Wood fired Pizza cafe, spent plenty of time on the Fijian massage tables, shot a little pool and basically relaxed with the Beachouse community; many who live in outlying villages.

Fiji holds a special place in the hearts of the Adventure sports team. Fijian's are laid back, community focused and always super cruisie; something we value on holiday and at home in Noosa.

If you want to join us next year, we are taking expressions of interest, so send us a message here.

Never too old to learn to Kitesurf

Never too old to learn to Kitesurf

How old is too old to kitesurf?

So far, with over ten years of teaching experience, we can honestly say that you are never too old to learn to kitesurf. We have successfully taught hundreds of people over 40 years of age to kitesurf, both male and female. One of our most successful students was over 70 when he came to us to learn and he has continued to progress at home in the US. Even Barrack Obama recently learnt to kitesurf at the age of 55.

Check out one of our Facebook Videos of one of our mature students progressing here.

Top Tips for over 50's learning to kitesurf

  • Get quality instruction - referral is the best option. Find a school that has taught other people of your age or fitness level. Not all schools have the experience, patience and expertise to teach students of all skill levels.
  • Learn in shallow water - older students don't always have the fitness level for learning in deep water and shallow water offers the easiest way to learn to kitesurf, this one goes for everyone!
  • Use the safest and most suitable equipment - not all safety systems are the same. Only use equipment with a full flagging safety system.
  • Learn in moderate wind - get the gear that makes learning easy in moderate wind conditions. Bigger kites & bigger boards in moderate wind offer the safest way to learn to kitesurf. Big kites are like big trucks. They move slowly and more predictably than small kites and don't surprise you with excessive power unexpectedly.   
  • Take your time. You don't bounce like a 20 year old and won't recover from injuries as quickly as you once did. So take it easy and avoid accidents all together. There is no reason why anyone should sustain any injury while learning to kitesurf.

Fantastic Kite surfing instruction

'These guys were great for learning to kite. I had a few lessons before, but George helped me put it all together. Extremely knowledgeable about the sport and very safety focused.'

Adventure SUP

Adventure SUP

Everyone knows you can surf a SUP, race a SUP and play on flat water with a SUP, but not many have experienced the advantages of Adventure SUP.

The Noosa Everglades is the ideal place to tour with a SUP. The pristine waters offer safe swimming, glorious natural wonders and established overnight camping locations. 

You don't need a touring SUP to take advantage of this awesome activity. There are some very affordable options out there from our Run Out Naish Glide Touring, a used Race SUP or some of our longer flatwater SUPs on special, like the Starboard Blend or the Fanatic 11'6 Fly.

Adventure Sports sell all the accessories you might need for a day or overnight trip including deck nets, lashing points, waterproof backpacks, paddle leashes, hydration, light weight tents and so much more.
