He was open to any questions, always with an answer! It was a really fun lesson with just 4 of us beginners. Also had the privledge of Pedro the dog... More

The shop is populated of friendly and competent people. I just rented full equipment for a kiteboarding session. Price was really good and Quality of gear was the best you can find on the market. If you need anything related to water sport, this is the right place where to stop. No doubt :)

The best place for anything kitesurfing / windsurfing and SUP in Melbourne . These guys are the experts . Every time I have gone into their shop they have provided with honest advice and hooked me up with an awesome deal. Plus they stock the latest Ride Engine harnesses .

I have booked a kite lesson and came in the shop where I arrived a bit early. Staff offered me a cold drink and a seat and told me it would be ten min. After five minutes an instructor came in and took care of me throughout. The lesson was excellent considering I was very nervous and not particularly confident.... More

Horrible experience, the sarcasm and lack of professionalism from the manager was unnecessary. Our Kite surfing lessons was cancelled because of the weather conditions. Our friends from the US asked for a refund because they couldn’t reschedule. The manager was reluctant to provide a refund and made it unpleasant for my friends and I.

The Zu Boardsports changed my life from the moment I walked in for just a simple stand up paddle board hire. Not only did I learn so much from the amazing team in store and the school about SUP, windsurfing and kite surfing, but I have found a new passion in kite boarding. The lessons provided by the school instructors... More
