Season for Kiteboarding Lessons in Cairns

The best time of the year to come to Cairns to learn Kiteboarding is April – November. In our cooler months (but still 25 degree c days!) we get pretty consistent southeasterly trade winds, usually in the afternoons, but sometimes they will start blowing in the late morning.

Our Location – Yorkeys Knob

An awesome spot to learn to Kitesurf.  Yorkey’s Knob is a beach suburb just north of Cairns City.  It is probably the most popular spot for locals to go kiteboarding and there are sure to be a few people out on a windy day at Yorkeys Knob.  Here there is plenty of space on the beach front to learn how to fly the kite safely and some cool shallow flat water spots to practice on when we first introduce the board to you.  There is a great kiting community vibe down at Yorkeys Knob, so be sure to check it out. All our lessons take place at Yorkeys Knob Beach.

Our Lessons

2 Hour Private Lesson. – $250

Perfect for complete beginners, or for those with some experience that just want to refine their technique.  For complete beginners, we often recommend 3 x 2-hour private lessons.  After the 6 hours, you will be well on your way to becoming an independent kiteboarder.  Some people with previous board sport or windsurfing experience may take even less time to become independent.
Feel free to get in touch with us to discuss your options so we can tailor your lessons to suit you.
