There is probably only 20 kiters in the southern suburbs of the gong. For such a minority sport , kiteschools don't exist. Guys have tried teaching in the northern suburbs over the years but reality took over and it was in the too hard basket...Try kitepower at the bay..

Tryed Googling unhooked in Port Kembla they came up with nothing?
So isn't an actual shop shop or just some dude doing lessons?
I mean Port Kembla couldn't even support the spearfishing shop that was there. And there's a $hit ton more Spear-o in the Illawarra than kiters that's for sure.

Hi Towradgi,
Call in to Unhooked water sports in Port Kembla and say Hello to Ben the owner. It's definately a shop, just opened but Benny's been around for a while. He saved my Primbee session last week when I forgot my leash (on another harness) and lent me one.
Good to see a local kite/water sports shop so close for us.

Primbee fokn primbee ..the best kept winter secret spot for desperadoes until the poley social media g.p.s. chasers took over 4 years ago...i believe gerry and leon cleaned up the foreshore 5 years ago for kiters except for that one tree that claims kites at the launch site.At least 5 kites of the towradgi crew over the years.Can Ben chop it down plz its only a casuarina tree. The towradgi crew have moved on from primbee 3 years ago,too many dud sessions with inconsistent winter gusty crap.We go out easties on a s.wester.now.
