  • ~ SMASHING IT ~

Wave season is here... check out @naishsup addicted rider Christian Parsons smashing the lip on his Naish Hokua Raptor at his home break in Coffs Harbour this past week.

Definitely worth checking out the awesome Naish SUP range for your wave missions this winter!

Hit us up at @kiterepublicaustralia to find out more!

  • ~ HAPPY TRAVELS KAT ~

Always sad to say goodbye after a fantastic season. Very jealous of our resident Scot's time ahead in Bali.

Enjoy and we'll see you soon!
  • ~ BACHELORETTE 🇦🇺 IS LOOKING FOR YOU ~

One for the kiting and SUP'ing boys... The @bacheloretteau just contacted us and is looking for kiting & SUP'ing singles to get involved (no pun intended) in their upcoming season.

If you're single and keen on finding 'The One' (or at least having fun along the way) head to http://tenplay.com.au/thebachelorette
  • ~ THAT'S DEEP ~

You are correct, that's not a wave board. Not only are these @deepoceanboards super quick race winning boards, but they're also heaps of fun out there on the water.

Check out Chris Clarke getting barreled in the lead up to the 12 towers event last month on the new 12'6 DEEP RIOT which also took out a couple of categories in the recent state titles Technical Racing.

Top work @chrisclarke73 and top work DEEP on the amazing new production range. So much positive talk from everyone that sets foot in them!

For more info or to organize a demo on the new DEEP range hit us up on sup@krsupcentre.com.au

See you on the water (hopefully in a wave like that)
  • ~ KOKOFIT SUP ACTION ~

Great day for some SUP action with Koko & the girls. Looked like heaps of fun and it's always nice to introduce a bunch of new SUPers to our awesome sport.

Great stuff @kokofitpt and team!

  • ~ DAY START WELL? ~

Fantastic to start the day with the mornings group SUP Training. 25 or so keen paddlers of all levels and board shapes took to the water for this mornings training. Plenty of smiles, panting and friendly banter to boot!

Morning trainings every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, no cost, give KR a call for more info and get started today!

You'll be done by 7 and have plenty of time to get to work!
  • ~ WE CAN'T ALL BE THAT COOL ~

Any surgeons out there that might be able to help Mr Trump extend his little fingers a bit so he can grip the bar?

Would be a shame if he never got the chance to be as cool as Obama!

Haha, have a great weekend boys and girls, Sunday looks epic!
  • ~ WHAT BETTER START TO THE DAY ~

When they're not putting out fires Melbourne's fireys are making the most of their days with KR and logging some well earned water time. Great to see the
  • ~ SUPMOBILE ~

The ultimate SUPmobile care of Mr Frenchy 👍

I'm thinking 6 high for the next downwinder is challenge #2.

Who's in?
  • ~ DOES IT GET ANY BETTER? ~

St Kilda Beach, 30+ degree day, SUP boards getting a great workout and heaps of stoked faces already... so much fun and the afternoon is yet to hit!

Come and hire a SUP from KR, see the best views of the boats and city going around and be a part of the action.
  • ~ WRECKED! ~

What do 25 kiters look like after 8 hours of testing their limits and learning on a KR Camp Weekend? ...and that was just the first day!

  • ~ HAPPY EJ DAY ~

A massive happy birthday to KR Team Rider Ewan Jaspan. Ewan's been leading the freestyle charge in Australia for many years now and between the crazy levels and awesome style he has on the water and his super popular Ewan Jaspan Freestyle Clinics he's been dragging the level up around the country.

  • ~ 6 YEARS AGO... & THE FUN CONTINUES ~

There's never a dull moment behind the scenes at KR. We have been blessed and have always worked super hard to make sure we have the best quality and most fun staff going around.

This popped up today from a team party at our old KR Instructor House 6 years ago.

Always fun & just reminded me how amazing our staff have always been. Think I might have even spotted a small Scottish kid version of @ewanjaspan in the middle there that turned out to be a pretty decent rider as well 😜

Get involved, join the fun at KR 🎉
  • ~ HO HO HO ~

Thanks to all the awesome Santa Claus legends that got involved and made todays Annual KR Santa Claus Downwinder so much fun!

There was just shy of 50 Santa's descending on St Kilda in the best wind this 10 year old event has seen with most people pretty lit on midget kites.

Full album and wrap to come sometime this week, but most importantly a massive shoutout to Jamie from Source for the awesome photos, Katie Potter Kiteboarding for the great photos and car shuffle help, Ewan Jaspan/Adam Brown/Simon Evans and all the riders that helped me with safety and on water help and most importantly all you legends that made Santa proud and got involved.

Great job everyone, hope you have a cracking Christmas!
