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
April to 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.

For Intermediate and Advance levels:
However, you may also choose to learn kiteboarding during the monsoon season from
Nov to Mar (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. The best month with good wind and sunny day will be Jan to early March.

Is Kitesurfing easy to learn?
Compared to windsurfing, wakeboarding, and surfing, kiteboarding is a relatively easy sport to learn. Most students are able to get up on their board after three to fifth lessons from our kiteboarding lesson in good wind and weather conditions.

If you have prior experience in surfing, kite-flying, windsurfing, or wakeboarding, the learning curve will be shorter, but anyone can learn provided they have the patience and willingness to learn. Being comfortable in the water will certainly help. With good instruction, the learning curve is accelerated. Without good instruction or no instruction at all, kitesurfing can be quite dangerous and time-consuming. It is recommended that all beginners receive some sort of training or take up a proper lesson.


What wil 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 trainer kite during your first kite lessons to practice kite control.
