It might be getting cooler, but Noosa has been beautiful for the occasional DI kite and local SUP sessions.
The water is crystal clear and the waves might still be on the small side, but they have been pretty clean and consistent for SUP.
Take a look at a few photos of the fun we have been having.
Follow us on Facebook to see all the DI & Rivermouth kiting plus all the local SUP photos.
Sunday 31st August - Location to be confirmed depending on weather conditions

George and Fiona are back on deck full-time after a number of dealer meetings over the past month. There are some exciting products coming in 2015 and we are well under way with our ordering. BEST kiteboarding look like coming back into the Australian market with some quality products in the coming season. Their twin tip boards were a great surprise at the Cairns dealer meeting and we will be stocking a number of models. The Kahoona is still a fantastic entry level kite and the new TS certainly ticks all the boxes for the RPM/Dice style of kite which is so popular here on the Sunny Coast.
North & Fanatic continue to provide top quality products. With the addition of a new light wind kite in 2015, their line up looks like continuing to dominate next season. The Dice was a sweet ride and the new 4 line safety system makes all the 4 line kites in the North line up suitable for even novice riders. As soon as we are given the okay to release images, we will post some up to date info for everyone.
We were unable to attend the Liquid Force Dealer meeting, however some really interesting additions will be heading into the 2015 season including a single strut light wind kite & affordable foil board.
Team Riders Josh Stephens and Callum Everson both attended the National Freestyle Kiteboarding Championships in March, held in Brighton Melbourne. They really enjoyed the competition and we are very pleased with both their results.
Josh took 2nd in Open Men's, 2nd in under 21's & 3rd in under 18's. A fantastic result. While Callum managed to finish 7th in the juniors after being eliminated by Josh. This is a really great result for his first competition. It wasn't that long ago, when Josh finished in the exact same position at the Nationals. We want to congratulate both these guys for their focus on the sport and community of kiteboarding, while being awesome role models and ambassadors for Noosa. Well done!
