Margaret River Kitesurfing & Windsurfing - where it all began...
The first time I rode a windsurfer was back in 1984, at the age of 11,
on the Canning River in Perth, Western Australia, and it made a whistling sound when it got up to speed. From then I was hooked, and had a bunch of great mates to windsurf with in the suburb of Shelley.
From there it was a series of stepping stones, progressing onto more advanced
and competing in the Australian Windsurfing Series for a number of years,
an overall ranking of Runner Up Australian Champion in 1996,
in the disciplines of Slalom, Course Racing & Wavesailing.
During this time I also completed a Bachelor of Science Degree. The studies included a
course in Climate and Weather. These skills combined with a lifetime of observing the
weather has provided me with an intimate knowledge of weather and ocean conditions.
The sport of windsurfing provided an opportunity to explore the fantastic coastline of
Western Australia, with long road trips,
from Gnaraloo in the north, to Denmark in
the south, and east to Esperance. During this time I decided to focus on Wavesailing,
and then settled in Margaret River in 1998.
I discovered Kitesurfing in 2000, and after completing an International
Kiteboarding Organisation (IKO) instructor training course, setup
River Kitesurfing and Windsurfing in 2002. For me this was a fantastic
lifestyle and great opportunity to combine work with my passion.
The school was expanded to include retail sales of Kitesurfing, Windsurfing
and later Stand-Up Paddle equipment.
In 2010, I competed in the Australian National Wavesailing Titles at Margaret River,
placing Runner Up Champion. The passing on of a combination of these
'Waterman' skills to students of my school is a reward in itself, and it is great
to see a student realise the joy and lifestyle advantages that watersports
can provide...fitness, self esteem, strength, time out from busy schedules,
& travel opportunities to name a few.
I now have the greatest opportunity in the world...to pass on these skills to my son
. And all of my students.
And to let you in on the BIG SECRET: With these sports you
get fit as a by-product of having fun!
See you on the water...
