Windswell is local company based in Port Douglas offering kitesurfing and SUP (standup paddle boarding) instruction and tours. WindSwell has experienced IKO instructors to accommodate all levels of riders in private or group lessons. All instructors are qualified in first aid and there is a safety boat and first aid kit on standby for offshore trips. All lessons are safe, progressive, fun and great value for money. Our aim is to make our students competent, independent kitesurfers, certifying all our students with the IKO Kiteboarder Card. Using the latest kite surfing gear, all students are equipped with flotation vests, wetsuits, and helmets. New this year is the Instructor/Student helmet-cam radio communications to aid in faster learning. SUP tours explore beautiful Four Mile Beach, Low Isles and the rainforest rivers. We invite riders of all experience and age to join us for our regular social events, Sunday Sessions, epic Downwinders and fitness sessions.

This tour is so relaxing and so much fun! From paddling up stream, playing on rope swings, then slowly drifting back down stream, Sarah was an amazing guide and catered to all abilities. Highly recommend you do this.
