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.

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.

Check out the adventure SUP video here and take a browse through our SUP accessories catalogue online here.

Nisco SUP Race Series - Event 1

Nisco SUP Race Series - Event 1

They always say you have to start somewhere. Saturday the 17th September was the very first Nisco SUP Race in Noosa and for those who attended, it was a great day.

The weather was perfect, JB from Naish joined in to show the team the ropes and everyone enjoyed some one on one coaching and participation. Even the Yacht Club boat crews had a little time to join in the fun.

We already have registrations for the October's event, some travelling from Hervey Bay and the team are all hyped up to see loads of people, especially kids join in. So to make the event even more affordable, we are allowing kids to participate FREE when coming with an adult.

The registration is only $15 and this includes the board use, coaching if time permits and the support of the rescue boat from the Noosa Yacht and Rowing Club.

As we build up these events over the season, we will be planning a round of the National Nisco competition where not only the relay race will featured but all divisions will be on show including the 10km endurance and full course race.

For more details, call us at the shop on 0754556677 or register online here.

Moon Rise Paddle

Thanks to everyone for joining in for our recent Moon Rise Social Paddle. We even had visitors from Melbourne staying at Munno Point Caravan Park jump in to join us with plenty of locals along for the ride. A few of us enjoyed drinks and tapas at IS Tapas afterward and thanks to the crew there who squeezed us in.


If you missed this event, then don't forget to join our email or text updates or LIKE us on Facebook where all our events are listed. We try and run a social paddle once a month, especially during the warmer months. Some of you may be wondering why we didn't head off from the Lion's Park as we have in the past, but unfortunately we require a permit to use this area now. T Boats kindly offered to let us use their facilities, so special thanks to them for their support.

Take a look at a few of the photos here.

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. 

If you are considering a kitesurfing trip to Noosa, then don't hesitate to contact us. We can arrange the whole package, including a variety of accommodation and tour options.

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.
