About Us

The Zu Team 2023-24

Our staff Christmas party and lunch at Melbourne Cable Park this season (back by popular demand)! Beautiful 32deg weather, minimal breeze, Dani and Maria were finally content with Brazil-like weather arriving in Melbourne (for a short while). Everyone riding a good 6hrs for it being Tuesday and we pretty much took up half of the cables. Nico was a clear winner on the hype as he wanted to stay longer. 

This year’s new addition to the family we have Johan from France (but a Melbourne local), Nicolai from Austria, Robbie from Mexico, Francesco from Italy, and Dani from Brazil. The usual suspect Josh is still kicking around with us!  


The Zu Team 2022-23

Christmas dinner at Ciao Cielo in Port Melbourne this season! This year’s new addition to the family we have Genaro from Mexico, Savanna from France/Germany, Maks and Natalia from Poland, and Louis who has joined us in Jan from Germany. The usual suspect Josh will be with us again! 

This year has been busier than ever as we took over SUPHQ (Standup Paddle HQ- St Kilda)! You will see us down at the beach every weekend enjoying the calm summer mornings SUPing, and kiting once its windy in the afternoon! 

Carlos and Hayato

Just the beginning

Hello, we are Carlos (left) and Hayato (right). 

We took over The Zu Boardsports in July 2021, and began our new journey as The Zu Kite Club. We also took over “Standup Paddle HQ- St Kilda” or SUPHQ in August 2022 to spend even more time at the beach! 

We strive to grow a safe and lively kiting community in Melbourne by providing the best instructions and customer service. 


Join our team

We are motivated, relaxed and fun group of people who love spreading the sport of kiting. 

You will see us kiting before lessons, until the sunset, and during lunch times. We all love riding and I hope you do too!



We are always looking for kiteboarding instructors with excellent people and communication skills. We are very accommodating with your busy schedule. We will make sure you get some time to ride!
