Kitesurfing lessons & gear hire

With two World Heritage Sites on our doorstep – The Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest- it’s pretty hard to find another kitespot like this.

Our permanent playground is pure eye candy, perched at the southern end of Port Douglas’ iconic Four Mile Beach. Blessed with views of rainforest clad mountain ranges that hug the Coral Sea, and a wide-open beach lined with palm trees and powder-soft sand, it’s a kiteboarder and ocean lover’s paradise.

In addition to all-year-round warm flat water, tropical temperatures and consistent south-easterly trade winds, you’ll be going as coconuts as we are for kiteboarding kicks along this coastline!

We’re thrilled for you to join us for a laid-back, stoke-fuelled kiteboarding experience in our special part of Tropical North Queensland.

 

Beginners
