Kitesurfing lesson for beginners
My kids who are teens wanted to try kitesurfing. We found some info about kitesurfing lessons in Balok Beach, Kuantan. We reached the Oxbold to know the availability and other conditions via whatsapp. Our experience: the staff was super friendly, instructor was very professional and patient, the beach for kitesurfing was wide and not crowded, equipment and gear was quite new and suitable for beginners. by Jurgita - Aug 2020


Kiteboarding - Novice to Beginner
I cannot rate Oxbold and in particular Daniel highly enough. Whilst travelling around Asia, I decided at the last minute to head to Kuantan, Balok beach to learn kiteboarding, I found Oxbold online and Steven the owner replied to me very quickly. After the first lesson with Daniel, I knew I had made a good decision to learn with them. I progressed quickly having never flown a kite before and after 6 hours of lessons I was putting my feet on the board and the lesson after I managed to stand and do several runs. Daniel is such a good teacher, he is one of kiteboarding’s OGs and one of the first to take it up in Malaysia! He cares about safety, gave me kiteboarding videos to watch in my free time and even made sure my belongings were safe when I left them on the beach and forgot about them. I nearly went to Bali to learn kiteboarding but am so happy I stayed in Malaysia and chose Daniel at Oxbold. If you want to learn properly on a safe and quiet beach then head to these guys. Thank you Daniel and thank you Steven for the video of me learning! by tomandlauren - Jan 2019


Windsurfing for beginners
Wilson was insightful and easy to follow, essential traits to have when teaching something technical like windsurfing. Being vastly experienced, he knows how to maximize your time on the water and can recommend the best spots to enjoy windsurfing at each level of competency. I’m looking forward to my next session with him. by sk4n12 - Aug 2022


A great place to windsurf and fantastic instructor
Wilson is a superbly fantastic instructor. He's the best instructor I have had for windsurfing. He teaches you the basics and gets you going at your pace. He motivates you all the way and it is clear that he enjoys seeing his students learn and improve. I strongly recommend Wilson and I hope to make Balok my stopover whenever I visit Malaysia. Thanks Wilson, hope to see you soon. by 303jeff2016 - Nov 2018

When is the best time to learn kiteboarding in Malaysia?
Kiteboarding or also known as kitesurfing, this sport gained popularity day by day at Balok Beach, Kuantan.

For Beginner:
The off monsoon season from
April to Oct (estimated 3 to 12 knots of wind). This season is mostly calm sea bed and a sunny day, sometimes slight sea swell. Perfect for beginners to learn kiteboarding.

For Intermediate and Advance levels:
However, you may also choose to learn kiteboarding during the monsoon season from
Nov to Mar (an estimated 15 to 30 knots of wind come with strong waves and rain in early monsoon) to learn kiteboarding, instructor will provide a smaller kite for your training based on your weight and skills. The best month with good wind and sunny day will be Jan to early March.

Is Kitesurfing easy to learn?
Compared to windsurfing, wakeboarding, and surfing, kiteboarding is a relatively easy sport to learn. Most students are able to get up on their board after three to fifth lessons from our kiteboarding lesson in good wind and weather conditions.

If you have prior experience in surfing, kite-flying, windsurfing, or wakeboarding, the learning curve will be shorter, but anyone can learn provided they have the patience and willingness to learn. Being comfortable in the water will certainly help. With good instruction, the learning curve is accelerated. Without good instruction or no instruction at all, kitesurfing can be quite dangerous and time-consuming. It is recommended that all beginners receive some sort of training or take up a proper lesson.


What wil I learn as a Beginner?
You learn to fly a trainer kite for launching, landing, and kite control, and this will have a massive impact on your general kite awareness. These usually foil kites which are different from the inflatable tube kites we use when kiteboarding. These kites are easier to fly, they depower completely making them easy to recover when you make mistakes and are relatively cheap. Instructors will use trainer kite during your first kite lessons to practice kite control.
