You never know who's going to "drop in" on you in Noosa - Adventure Sports Kite Surf Australia recently hosted keen kite surfers Sir Richard Branson and his former Virgin Australia CEO Brett Godfrey on an adventure along Noosa's eastern beaches.
The two share more than kite surfing in common - they also own the secluded Makepeace Island in the Noosa River (pictured below), Sir Richard's "Australian home" where he stayed on his recent trip.
George (pictured below with Sir Richard), Fiona and their family from Adventure Sports Kite Surf Australia showcased Noosa's pristine coastal kite surfing paradise to the high flyers, as they enjoyed a "down-winder" from Stumers Creek at Coolum to Castaways Beach, just a few minutes from Noosa Heads.
While a down-winder on Noosa's eastern beaches is for experienced kite boarders only, Adventure Sports Kite Surf Australia also offer introduction to kite boarding lessons (one on one or private group) at Lake Weyba which is perfectly flat and shallow for beginners, and progression sessions to help improve techniques or if you're a little rusty after winter. The next progression clinic will be held on 17 October - $75 for a full day of support and coaching.
Adventure Sports Kite Surf Australia is an IKO (International Kiteboarding Organisation) certified training centre and they have a huge range of the latest equipment for sale or hire. Check out their great new big blue shop at 136 Eumundi Road, Noosaville!
