From the initial contact with KiteBud you can see Christian has set up a very professional school. His videos are personally produced, professional and go through the basics, teaching you the fundamentals of kiteboarding and maximizing your water time so you’re not spending valuable time learning the basics on the beach. His focus on your safety and the safety of other beach users and is his main concern. The 2 way radio helmet is a fantastic real time tool for giving instructions and allowing you to progress quickly. Christian is very thorough and he goes to great lengths to document each lesson. He tracks your progress with his student training record sheet noting the conditions you were out in on the day to provide you with post lesson constructive feedback on your progression as well as videos of your session. His gear is second to none with a full range of current season Airush kites from a 3m up to his 15mtr and a great range of boards from the “barn door” to smaller boards that will see you heading up wind in no time and that will allow you flying in all wind conditions safely. Christian’s passion for the sport is evident and he is one of those mythical beasts that love going to work every day…. lucky bugger! After an 8 hour package I can confidently go to the beach and get out into the water on my own gear with confidence and a good grounding of fundamentals to ensure I ride safely. His packages are the best value packages in Perth. Thanks for making my introductions to this sport so enjoyable. The whole experience has been very satisfying and one I would recommend KiteBud to anyone looking to progress in kiteboarding on all skill levels not just a newbie.
As an experienced kiter, I understand the dangers associated with this sport. I entrusted Chris with my teenager kiteboarding lessons so that he could learn how to be self sufficient in a safe way. Chris has knowledge of the latest safety techniques and advancements of the sport. We had personalized sessions and it provided my kid a solid foundation to enjoy this sport. I can enjoy more time on the water knowing my kid knows how to safely rescue himself from tricky situation. He is progressing well. Chris was all about safety and self sufficiency. I strongly recommend Chris and kitebud, their program is the best I have come across in my years of kiting. Ride safe!
What I loved about learning to kite surf with Christian is that he teaches you from the 'bottom up' in a very structured and professional way. Don't expect to be riding a board in your first couple of hours of lessons like other schools advertise. He teaches you the essentials first with a key emphasis on safety, enabling you to be an independent kiter who can get yourself out of trouble and back home safely (without loosing your board). I highly recommend KiteBud to anyone wanting to try this incredibly rewarding sport.
I've had a few lessons with Christian from Kitebud and as a result, I've learned heaps! Although I still make sure to kite with others around, I feel much more independent and confident that I can self rescue when far from the shore. His dedication to improvement and safety are worth every penny!

Let’s face it, we live in a time where everything has to be done fast, easy and cheap. Unfortunately, the kitesurfing lessons industry hasn’t escaped this trend. Newbies are being sold the dream of learning to kite in just a few hours, cruising around effortlessly on their boards, independent and safe.
The sad part is that most students, even those who wanted proper training, simply don’t realize that the product they actually bought is much closer to a kitesurfing experience rather than a good lesson. Don’t get me wrong, students getting a kitesurfing experience can have a pretty awesome time as well.
Lessons are oversimplified and the focus is put on getting on to the board quickly. The only way to achieve this is to skip (or go very quickly over) an impressive amount of fundamental skills. This, of course, is often done in shallow waters with constant assistance from the instructor.
As a result, the majority of students completing their lessons aren’t independent at all and need to be re-trained if they really wish to become genuinely independent kitesurfers.
The simplest way to evaluate the quality of your training is not to watch what the instructor says or does but to ask yourself what do you know and what are you competent at doing without the help of your instructor?
Through many years of re-training hundreds of students, I took notes of the most common knowledge and skills that were lacking from these under-trained kiters and would like to share this with everyone in my first blog post
The idea is to give students a comprehensive tool to self-assess the quality of their training as well as a tool to help them understand their strengths and weaknesses.
My ultimate hope is that schools offering kitesurfing experiences actually market their product as such and that schools offering average lessons up their game to offering good lessons.
Thanks for reading. As usual I’d love to hear from your experiences and get some feed-back.
