  • ~ NAISH KITE DEMO UPDATE ~

St Kilda is teasing currently with 14 knots + gusts. We're planning to be there for the Naish Demo by 4:30.

Will update this post if any changes.
  • ~ AWESOME MORNING OF FOIL... KITE DEMO ON HOLD ~

Unbelievable to share the stoke of foil with just over 40 keen crew this morning. Massive thanks to Nik from @kiteboardforlifeaustralia and Captain Phil for their amazing efforts. Also to JB from @naishaustralia it was awesome as always to have you down in Vicco!

Kite demo is on hold with a possible Altona mission mid late arvo session depending on wind.
  • ~ GET YOUR SUP ON ~

27 degrees and glassy waters. The perfect day to come and hire a SUP from KR, or take the challenge, get a group together and grab the @fanaticsupaustralia Party SUP!

1 or 2 small storms that might show themselves so give us a bell to check the radar if you're unsure but should be epic out there.

  • ~ NAISH FOIL EXPERIENCE ~

  • ~ EXPLORE ST KILDA BY SUP ~

31 degrees and a nice still morning makes it perfect for hiring a SUP from KR today.

Check out This absolute cracker taken by @bigmtnskierx last night as he and Piper made the most of a glassy St Kilda Beach sunset.

Drop in and see us at @kiterepublicaustralia at St Kilda Seabaths.

  • ~ ST KILDA BEACH ~

Gotta love @stkildabeach in Summer... might not quite be summer but the atmosphere is pretty awesome already.

Drop in and say hi... FREE SUP HIRE for anyone that's been on a KR CLUB event in 2017 πŸ˜‰πŸ¬
  • ~ KITING LIFESTYLE ~

Yes, kiting is the most amazing sport around, but even off the water it's the people you meet and awesome characters that take it to the next level. You'd struggle to find a nicer and more welcoming group of people than kiteboarders!

This weeks KRew Poker game!

Tag a mate that's always good to hang out with that you wouldn't have ever met without kiting, share the love!

  • ~ CREATING INDEPENDENT KITERS ~

It's been a great start to the season with plenty of early seabreeze action and lessons firing most days and KR Instructors absolutely stoked to be creating new and safe kiteboarders in the best possible way.

Waters warming up, winds are on, get out there for lessons with KR NOW!

  • ~ BEWARE ST KILDA KITERS ~

St Kilda kiters please keep in mind that all the sand that was dumped into the kiddy pool beach area covering the rock wall by dredging last week is now disappearing and patches of the rock wall are showing through already.

Be aware to give plenty of space as it's not overly visible yet.

If you're not sure where we're talking about and you kite in the kiddy pool area give KR a call for more info.

  • ~ WHAT'S YOUR MONEY SHOT? ~

It's always nice to get some great photos from the water to spread the love and get some more mates stoked on joining you.

Another absolute cracker out there today. Plenty of camera's around with family's together for cup day as well. Have you got your best few camera shots dialled? 
Check out this fun little Indy Glide from Nick in Aitutaki at KR's Winter Escape this year, always a win on camera. If you're keen to give it a go a couple of tips would be:

1. Keep kite still & load and pop
2. As you leave the water in your 'pop' phase you must feel like you're overcommitting your upper body off the front of the board (the pull from the kite will allow you to bring it back)
3. In the air turn, look back, and pose for your money shot!

Would recommend some other great 'photo' tricks could be:
- Grab transitions (slow moving, easy to pose and capture)
- Boost with grab and look at camera (tailgrab normally easiest to control)

Good luck getting your money shot!

Oh, don't forget to find a legend like @creativelinesnz on the lens!

  • ~ READY FOR ACTION ~

Huge welcome to Vlad... just decided he was going to be stoked every windy day for the rest of his life!

If you're out at Altona and see him make sure you say g'day offer a hand and help him kick off his kiting career right.

Have you planned any awesomeness for your summer days?

Get on it!

  • ~ SUP FOILING: THE SOUND OF SILENCE ~

Wow, what an addictive feeling... Chris & Warwick headed down the coast for a SUP Foil mission with mates a couple of weeks back.

It was Chris' first SUP Foil (and he's well and truly hooked), and Warwick, being Victoria's first SUP Foil'er is now a seasoned campaigner!

Turn the sound up... can you pick the movie soundtrack?

KR SUP... Victorias spot to talk everything SUP Foil!

  • ~ GONE ~

As of the last hour the dredging machine has moved out of St Kilda marina, the pipes cleared and all that's left is a truck load more sand on the beach than normal.

The kiddy pool is back in action... Summer you are now welcome!

  • ~ HOOKED MUCH? ~

6:30am, 11 degrees, a little rain, marginal wind... what better way to start the day!

  • ~ BOOK YOUR KITE LESSON NOW ~

There's never been a better time to learn. KR's lessons run 12 months of the year, but as of NOW the water is warming up, and the winds are starting to turn Southerly (great for kiting in St Kilda) very regularly.

To add to this there are not too many other people out on the beaches yet which means you get a lot more space to yourself that if you were to wait another 1-2 months.

Get on it, make the most of this summer (and every windy day in your future) and book a lesson with Kite Republic now.
