These are great pictures! They are hilarious but for a newbie like me I will be getting a lot of these fail attempts once I have started my kite surfing later this week. Goodluck to me! :D

If you find a good teacher you won't have these extreme experiences.

My advice is to wait a few months. Winter is not the best time to learn and there are less instructors around this time of year. Interesting first post, a bit bot like I must admit, but I'll bite. Good luck.

Hi katethebest,

I strongly agree with Jhana and westozwind. If you are taking lessons at this time of the year in WA/Perth you are most likely going through an unlicensed operator (no permits, no insurance). All legitimate schools in Perth are currently closed for a reason, it's the wrong time of the year to learn. Safety should be your primary concern when learning this sport and learning in storm fronts is the most unsafe thing you can do.

Thank you so much guys for the tips and advice. I have called my instructor and cancelled all my lessons. I think I will follow all your advice and will start taking lessons after winter.

I am truly a newbie with regards to kite surfing but I am eager to learn. I keep on watching YouTube videos. Maybe I will stick to the video first. :D

Or come up to Townsville/Cairns. Heaps of wind and water is still over 22deg, air 27deg.
