Kitesurf School overview

Kitethrills started as a school in late 1999 and has now taught thousands of lessons and most of Caloundra’s kitesurfers their basic skills. Experience counts and our reputation on the beaches as the most Professional, Patient, Effective, Safe and Successful kite school is deserved.

Our competency-based courses ensure you never get out of your depth and unsafe. Walk before you run! We start with the very basics of choosing a safe location and reading the wind, on to basic un powered flight skills, powered flight skills, basic water and safety skills, then water-starting and riding a board. When you show competency in a skill we move on to the next. You don’t waste time but you do stay safe. The average person is learning the water start and board skills after 4 – 6 hours.

Most Lessons are $110/hr or Free with new Kitesurf packages. Read more about our courses in the tabs below.

What Client’s Say

Big thank you to Mike and the team at Kitethrills. Another holiday to Caloundra and Mike Walker has taught another of our extended family to kitesurf. That’s a count of 4 of us now that can safely enjoy this wonderful sport. Andrew Long, David Long, Daniel Missen, and now Robin Johnson! I can highly recommend Kitethrills and Mike to anybody considering lessons. Mike is very thorough, explains things well, travels at each students (us) pace and without any high pressure sales. Sure we’ll be back again next time… Happy kiting! Go our Robin!!
