Kitesurfing lesson for beginners
My kids who are teens wanted to try kitesurfing. We found some info about kitesurfing lessons in Balok Beach, Kuantan. We reached the Oxbold to know the availability and other conditions via whatsapp. Our experience: the staff was super friendly, instructor was very professional and patient, the beach for kitesurfing was wide and not crowded, equipment and gear was quite new and suitable for beginners. by Jurgita - Aug 2020

Kiteboarding - Novice to Beginner
I cannot rate Oxbold and in particular Daniel highly enough. Whilst travelling around Asia, I decided at the last minute to head to Kuantan, Balok beach to learn kiteboarding, I found Oxbold online and Steven the owner replied to me very quickly. After the first lesson with Daniel, I knew I had made a good decision to learn with them. I progressed quickly having never flown a kite before and after 6 hours of lessons I was putting my feet on the board and the lesson after I managed to stand and do several runs. Daniel is such a good teacher, he is one of kiteboarding’s OGs and one of the first to take it up in Malaysia! He cares about safety, gave me kiteboarding videos to watch in my free time and even made sure my belongings were safe when I left them on the beach and forgot about them. I nearly went to Bali to learn kiteboarding but am so happy I stayed in Malaysia and chose Daniel at Oxbold. If you want to learn properly on a safe and quiet beach then head to these guys. Thank you Daniel and thank you Steven for the video of me learning! by tomandlauren - Jan 2019

Windsurfing for beginners
Wilson was insightful and easy to follow, essential traits to have when teaching something technical like windsurfing. Being vastly experienced, he knows how to maximize your time on the water and can recommend the best spots to enjoy windsurfing at each level of competency. I’m looking forward to my next session with him. by sk4n12 - Aug 2022

A great place to windsurf and fantastic instructor
Wilson is a superbly fantastic instructor. He's the best instructor I have had for windsurfing. He teaches you the basics and gets you going at your pace. He motivates you all the way and it is clear that he enjoys seeing his students learn and improve. I strongly recommend Wilson and I hope to make Balok my stopover whenever I visit Malaysia. Thanks Wilson, hope to see you soon. by 303jeff2016 - Nov 2018

When is the best time to learn kiteboarding in Malaysia?
Kiteboarding or also known as kitesurfing, this sport gained popularity day by day at Balok Beach, Kuantan.

For Beginner:
The off monsoon season from
middle Jan to early Oct (estimated 3 to 12 knots of wind). This season is mostly calm sea bed and a sunny day, sometimes slight sea swell. Perfect for beginners to learn kiteboarding. The best month with good wind and sunny day will be Jan to early March in Kuantan and Jan to middle May in Sabah.

For Intermediate and Advanced levels:
However, you may also choose to learn kiteboarding during the monsoon season from
late Oct to early Jan (an estimated 15 to 30 knots of wind come with strong waves and rain in early monsoon) to learn kiteboarding, instructor will provide a smaller kite for your training based on your weight and skills.

What will I learn as a Beginner?
You learn to fly a trainer kite for launching, landing, and kite control, and this will have a massive impact on your general kite awareness. These usually foil kites which are different from the inflatable tube kites we use when kiteboarding. These kites are easier to fly, they depower completely making them easy to recover when you make mistakes and are relatively cheap. Instructors will use a trainer kite during your first kite lessons to practice kite control.


OXBOLD offer two different venues for kiteboarding lessons in Malaysia. One in Peninsular East Coast of Malaysia, which is Balok Beach located in Kuantan. Another venue will be in East Malaysia, Sabah Borneo in Kudat at the tip of Borneo.

These 2 venues offer different wind conditions throughout the year however both were affected by the monsoon season for their gusty, strong wind and big waves from Oct to Dec, it's the playground for the pro kitesurfers period.

Check out both the kiteboarding lesson pages and plan which venue is fit your travel plan. Both instructors offer different lesson packages, for example, kitesurfing lessons charge by hour basic or day packages. Some included accommodation and airport transfer and the others do not have, this is due to a location far or close to the town.
