    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 maximising 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. Thanks again Christian and see you again soon when I need to master that toe edge slide?… ; ) Cheers Neil

    I took the 8hours lessons package with kitebud and can only recommend to learn kitesurfing with him! I had no previous surfboard sport or windsport experience, and Christian really helped me feel confident and safe in deepwater. I am now autonomous and can go kitesurfing by myself to keep improving my new skills! The online course with videos is also really helpful to spend more time playing with the kite during the actual lessons, and I will keep using them for refreshment from time to time. Merci! 🙂

    Christian at Kite Bud has created a great learning experience for me. After 4 two hour lessons, I am up on the board and away! Lots more to learn, but have a good handle on the basics. The online tutorials with Kite Bud, and the one on one tuition, has made this a fun and fast learning curve. Thanks Christian. Greg Ferguson, Watermans Bay.

    After a few lessons nearly two years ago with other schools I signed up for 8 hours of lessons with Christian Bulota of Kitebud. I’m extremely glad that I chose this school and would recommend it to anyone that wants to get into kitesurfing. The most noticeable aspect of Kitebud was the professionalism. Christian is a full time professional kitesurfing instructor and is also the owner of Kitebud. This is not the sort of place where you sign up for the school and are handed off to a kiting backpacker moonlighting as an instructor or a university student earning some extra cash. All your lessons are given by Christian. A very important part of the package is the video lessons that he provides that you need to watch before the lessons. These are very well done videos that Kitebud has put together and watching them before helps to save a lot of time. These are not just links to pre-existing videos on youtube but videos shot by the Kitebud school itself which make a big difference in allowing quicker progression. It is also useful if you forget something or want a refresh as you always have access to the videos. Other schools I have been to before always have a dedicated boat to get your board back to you. Kitebud does not have this luxury. On the one hand the lack of a boat means that you don’t get to practice as many waterstarts per hour. However, I feel that I actually made a lot more real progression as it forced me to learn how to body drag upwind and retrieve the board. I had never had to do this previously. As a result I would now feel a lot more comfortable going out on my own as I know how to body drag upwind to get my board. I also had to do a full-on self rescue in the water which other schools did not do. After every lesson you receive videos of your progress as well as a sheet containing feedback. The videos in particular are useful as often one thinks one is doing something but when you see the video of yourself you can see that you are not even close to what you thought you were doing. It also allows one to appreciate how much patience it takes to be a kiting instructor to see yourself repeat the same mistakes despite the instructor continually telling you what you are doing wrong.

    Christian is a great instructor with a wealth of knowledge. If he managed to teach me, he can teach anyone. It was an excellent experience to really accelerate my kite surfing career. Thanks

    I would definitely recommend Kitebud. I started my lessons nervous and unsure how the lessons would be, due to a bad experience with kite lessons in Victoria. However, lessons with Kitebud were completely different. Christian was understanding, patient and went at my own pace. Having the videos to watch before each lesson helped with having some basic knowledge before each lesson. All the equipment was high quality and having the helmet with speaker, so that he could direct and offer corrections in real time was helpful. An emphasis was placed on safety and helping you to progress to a level where you can go and continue learning by yourself.

    I booked 8H with no pre experience by Christian. Right after booking I got access to all videolessons. The vids are very helpful to understanding about setup, flying, riding, selfrescue and more. The lessons were adapted to my progress, so he runs them individually. He gave me sport and clear instructions on the radiohelmet. Which is very important for students who do not speak english well like me. (but he could do the lessons in french as well.) I would recommend kitebud to everyone who wants to learn kitesurfing effectively and safe. I feel safe wherever I go out, about his safety program. He loves this sport and this is epidemic. I’m a sport instructor too and I can say: Thanks for the awesome lessons!

    Christian is a really good instructor that always has your safety in mind. The radio helmets he uses are really useful to give you live feedback while you’re in the water and combined with his preparation videos I think it helps you progress a lot quicker. I saw him a few time on the beach outside of lessons and he was always happy to give me a few advices when he had the time, I think it’s one of the best instructors in Perth (if not the best).

    Very comprehensive and thorough teaching method. Huge focus on the fundamentals, safety and technique. Recommend to anyone who wants to learn how to kite safely and cut down time trying to figure it out on your own. Thanks for the lessons. Luke

    To start Christian is a 10/10 bloke who’s focus on kitesurfing fundamentals, in safety and technique, allowed me to really enjoy my first experience with kitesurfing. Christian is more then willing to cancel a lesson if the weather is unforgiving, never considering wasting a students time or money. His passion for the sport is infectious and I’ve caught the kitesurfing bug. The video lesson library accessible on his website ensures the learning process is seamless. His communication through out my lessons (confirming lessons prior, and advice during and after sessions) was clear and concise and he has the foundation of years of kiting and instructing in Canada. Thank you Christian I’ve had so much fun.
