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.

16th - 30th July
Book for 1 or 2 weeks - twin share private accommodation options are limited so be quick!
The team will be back in Fiji again this year for a fantastic winter escape offering wind, flat water and waves for all levels.
With share accommodation from $50 a day including meals & private rooms from $1295 for 7 days, you can't go wrong.
Beachouse offers a surf break right on your door step, a windy lagoon of flat water for intermediate kiters and some awesome breaks only a boat trip away including Serua left/right and Frigates.
The resort boasts a small and personal feel with day trips available for non-kiting partners or non-windy days. Island trips, waterfall walks, market trips and so much more make this location suitable for everyone to enjoy. Laze in a hammock, swim in the swimming pool or snorkel around the crystal clear waters.
George and Fiona will lead a group for downwinders as the conditions permit. The lagoon offers flat and shallow water for intermediate riders and the surf break is suitable for most kiters. The inside wave offers a perfect beginner SUP or surf wave, while the outside break is a fast and challenging option for the more advanced surfers.
We already have heavy bookings for the first week, so be quick to secure you spot. Contact us on 0754556677 for more details or email here.
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.
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.

Nisco Inflatable SUP Race Series
The Noosa series is open to amateurs, families or anyone just wanting to get out on the water for some fun in the sun this summer.
The format is for teams of 4-5 people to race in relay around a marker approximately 100mtrs offshore on the Noosa River. The winner of each heat will go in the finals to see who takes the title for the day.
The event is hosted by Adventure Sports in conjunction with the Noosa Yacht and Rowing Club who have made their facilities available for the race series which starts in September.
To cover board hire and the NYRC safety vessel there is a $15 entry fee per person. There will be some great prizes on offer for the winning team and you can grab a coffee and breaky at the NYRC afterwards if you like.
The event is open to anyone who wants to join in and have some fun. All ages, all fitness levels. Bring your own team or we can add you to a team on the day.
If you enjoy the series, you can join in to a round of the National competition to be held in Noosa in January, where all race formats will be held including a long distance and full course race.

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.
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.
