Australian Freestyle National Championship at Maroochydoor, Jan 2022 ft. Ewan Jaspan on the left (Australian Freestyle Champion for about a decade or more), Carlos in the middle, and Hayato on the right

All of our instructors are Kiteboarding Australia (KA)/ International Kiteboarding Organization (IKO) certified instructors. We are proud of all of our instructors, they are safety conscious, fun, skilled, and absolutely fantastic (that’s why they work with us)! At The Zu, we put a lot of time and effort in ongoing instructor training and their individual level of riding.

We also offer Head Instructor Lessons. The Zu Kite Club Directors, Carlos & Hayato, have been kiting for a decade and both of us have been teaching at St Kilda longer than any other instructors at this beach (aside from Josh). We both maintain high levels of riding in different disciplines and you will see us pushing our limits on the water. 

If you want the best of the best, crème de la crème of instructors, Carlos and Hayato are available upon request
