"Excellent instructors, location and equipment"
Surfconnect is extremely professional, well organised and has varied, well maintained equiptment. The instructors are very good; knowledgeable, friendly, patient and flexible. The location is fantastic for learning as the beach is very wide, shallow and not crowded plus the bonus of the adjacent facilities (toilets, shower, picnic areas, cafes) and super easy to get to from the airport or city by public transport.
I totally recommend surf connect! Friendly and professional staff, and Sandgate was the perfect location to begin with kitesurf.
I highly recommend surf connect for those who are interested to getting close to the kitesurfing... friendly staff and really good gears for the practice... It was an unforgettable experience! Thanks!

Surf Connect were easy to book with, Sandgate is the perfect location and Casper was awesome and so very helpful. My niece had never paddle boarded before and he looked after her and ensured we had a voucher afterwards for our next adventure. Thank you, Casper, for being so friendly and making our day :) I certainly recommend it to anyone, beginner or otherwise.

The lessons were conducted in the great setting with friendly and instructive kiters, my instructor (Dave) directed my actions and read my feelings in the water whilst imparting a safe and fun philosophy. It wasn't "do this", "do that", instead " Why this is done" - common sense backed by experience and always inviting questions without judging.
I may not have left my latest lesson riding like a pro but with the strong base skill and knowledge I gained and the reassuring comfort of the community they have fostered, it's now up to me to put in the effort and practice. Would I recommend them? Yes! Trust them? Yes! Use their service again? Next weekend , can't wait.
I had a very good day with Padi, Brian, and Brandon. They are very professional and friendly. Even if there was not enough wind to go kitesurfing they spent all day on teaching me how to use a kitesurf. They have very convenient prices too!
