  • Red Bull rally dos ventos

    Red Bull wet and wild wind-powered race across the desert

    Red Bull Rally dos Ventos may be the world’s most unique kiteboarding race. Got your sand wax?

    There’s all kinds of adventures in the world and most of them involve various forms of transportation, like paddling, biking and running and a few of them even go through a desert.

    But there’s nothing quite like Red Bull Rally dos Ventos – equal parts kiteboarding, sand surfing, running – and a navigational challenge. Competitors were charged with crossed the lagoon-filled desert of Northern Brasil. No race course other than the start […]

  • Season Opener

    Season Opening ‘LEARN FROM THE PROS’ Ride & Fun Day WRAP – Sat 20th Sept

    With the top riders and instructors in Australia coming together to give their time and help those lucky KR CLUB Members that could make it along kickstart their seasons with some FREE Clinics, it promised to be a great day.

    We weren’t disappointed with a turnout of over 50 keen kiters making it along to get some tips and progress their knowledge and skills.

    In addition to a large fleet of demo equipment that was waiting for about 3 or 4 more knots to be brought […]

    Season Opening ‘LEARN FROM THE PROS’ Ride & Fun Day – Sat 20th Sept

    As the Spring Sessions have well and truly hit and the South Westerly winds are now in play we thought we’d do our best to give you a little kickstart into the season.

    We have bought together an awesome crew of Australia’s Top Male and Female Riders and Teachers and will be offering FREE CLINICS to all KR CLUB Members to kick off a day of fun tomorrow on Saturday, September 20th.

    Kite Republic will have a great range of demo Kites and SUP’s, plenty of […]

  • Ruben Len10

    Ruben Len10 – Extreme Inspiring Lifestyle

    Known for his NO FEAR approach to Kiteboarding Ruben Lenten has been possibly the most marketed and well known kiteboarder on the planet for the past 5 or 10 years. I’m pretty certain that every single one of my junior team riders over the years has come out with either “I want to ride like Ruben” or “I’m trying to do Ruben’s new trick”. The guy throws down with extreme power and is insanely inspiring to watch out there on the water.

    Ruben has been a […]

  • The Impossible is not impossible

    INSANE Quadruple Handle Pass Robinson Hilario

    I’m not going to lie… the moves you are going to see throughout the later part of this 2 minute work of art are the sort of thing that should motivate us all to get off the couch and get fit. Very impressive.

    Go get em Robinson!

  • fanatic sup 2015

    Fanatic SUP 2015 is here

    With super slick and speedy race boards, surf style SUP’s that dominate at all weights and levels, and an awesome range of cruisers, inflatables and touring boards to boot, Fanatic have definitely been kicking goals in the R&D department.

    Can’t wait to get you out there demoing to see what all the fuss is about. Hit us up at the Kite Republic Shop in the St Kilda Seabaths. A 30m walk to water and you’re away!

    2015 sees five brand new shapes being added to the […]

  • dolphin SUP

    Dolphin takes out SUP’er

    Have you ever wondered who would win if you decided to play chicken with a Dolphin?

    NO? me neither… unfortunately for this guy the dolphin clearly had this very thought as he knocked this poor SUP’er for 6!


  • sup rescue

    French woman survives 36 hour ordeal on SUP

    This is a crazy story of a 36 hour SUP ordeal off the NE tip of France.

    Definitely some lessons to be learned from this…

    1. Make sure somebody knows where you are if heading out on the water.

    2. Heading out after dark by yourself probably isn’t the best idea!

    3. Make sure you know and understand the currents, wind conditions, and what effect these will have you your session.

    4. If you’re heading out (especially in open waters) make sure you have the correct safety gear with […]
