Kitesurf Australia - an historical look from 2007 to Now!

As we make the big move from the little blue shop on the Noosa River to our new Main Road, even brighter blue shop front, we have taken the time to reflect on the eight (8) years since 2007, when the Tarr family took over the iconic Kitesurf Australia shop. 

The shop was established by well known local Chris De Aboitiz (Keahi's dad) back in 2001 after the initial introduction of the kiteschool in 1999. Now known as Adventure Sports Kitesurf Australia, the shop has weathered local floods, the wettest summer in decades, the GFC and so much more.

We just wanted to share some of the history in a photo gallery we have put together. Check out a few blasts from the past including the Coolum Kite Festival, trips to Fiji, the introduction of SUP, old logos on old cars, new vehicles, shop renovations and insights into our family as Liam has grown up, Simon has finished school to take on the family business and new, exciting staff have joined in.

As we reflected on the past, we were reminded of the heart and soul of why we do what we do. The kitesurfing community and now the SUP and Skate community are what makes doing business, more like just having fun. Thanks to everyone who has helped us along the way. Take a look at the photos, you might even see one of yourself. 

Join us on the 17th June for our first day at 136 Eumundi Rd, take a look around and join in our excitement. A proper 'shop' warming will be held later in June or early July, so stay tuned for details. Final day of trading at Gympie Tce will be next Saturday the 13th June.

Check out the photos here.

Adventure Sports is on the Move in Noosa

It is going to be the end of an era people. No, don't panic, we are not closing, but we are moving house! Our 'Tardis' blue box on the Noosa River has served us well for many years. From its humble beginnings with Chris De Aboitiz back in the early 2000's to now, we have slowly expanded our boundaries as you guys have supported us (thanks for that by the way), but our little shopping centre is now very busy and parking and access along with ceiling height and space in general are getting in short supply. 

So...... Welcome to our soon to be, new home: 136 Eumundi Rd Noosaville is undergoing a face lift and we will be all settled in by late June. Watch the renovations via Facebook as we paint, signwrite, clean, carpet, fit out and transform this abandoned warehouse into our new home.

Now..... We have one favour to ask in order to make the moving process easier. There are some stock items we are looking to clear or reduce as we relocate so we are offering some huge discounts on clothing, shoes, snorkels, pool toys, sunnies, wetsuits, PFD's, accessories and so much more. Check out the savings:

T shirts all $25

Boardies all $40

Globe & Cobian Thongs all $20

Hive Swimwear all $30 a piece

For the month of May, all wetsuits, boogie boards, Keens Footwear and Clothing will be on clearance, so come in, take one last look at the old shop & grab a bargain!

Don't forget, stay tuned to check out the renovations and fit out as we go. The staff are all super excited and we are looking forward to our 'shop' warming party coming soon.
