Let's Break The Rules
Water sport can be relaxing too. Yoga outside of the studio!! Picnic on the sea and also hava a fabulous SUP birthday celebration! We are eager to have it all happening again. Thanks Oxbold and also the instructor, Wilson for giving us these memorable experiences. by Evonne39 - Sep 2021

Hospitality and great gear
Had the pleasure of renting an SUP board from Oxbold in Pahang for the whole day. Board, paddle and life jacket are in great condition, well-maintained. Oxbold's rep, Steven is warm and very helpful- giving me tips on where to head out on my solo paddle. Very quiet beach,
which means you have the whole ocean all to yourself! by Safari53727859159 - Dec 2018

Michael is a star
It was our first SUP lesson. Michael was patient, informative and friendly.Highly recommended. He made us feel so welcome. by Lee F - Nov 2018

Stand Up Paddling at Putrajaya
A group of us went for SUP in Putrajaya, which is run by Oxbold's partner company Flyboard Malaysia. Overall a very pleasant experience as the instructor was friendly and he provided clear instructions. by Roam51273808111 - Jun 2019

Learn to kitesurfing in the land below the wind. You don't need any former knowledge. Our highly experienced Sabahan Instructor will teach you everything with a smile.

It's a 5 day lesson, we recommend individual lessons for faster progress.

No matter which level you are at right now, our instructor will start with a short test to check your level and skills early in the lesson. Either you are a total newbie, completely new to boardsports, watersports and kite-flying. Or already kitesurfing for quite some time and need to improve your skills or simply need coaching to perfect your skills. Your lessons will start from scratch or from where you want to improve.

When is the best time to learn kiteboarding in Sabah, Borneo?
Kiteboarding or also known as kitesurfing, this sport gained popularity day by day now at Tip of Borneo in Sabah. The wind is much more consistent in Sabah throughout the year which makes learning kitesurfing much more easy and safe time.

For Beginner:
The best season is from
January to May (NorthEast wind estimated 10 to 20 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 Advanced levels:
However, you may also choose to learn kiteboarding during the monsoon season from
October to December (SouthWest wind estimated 5 to 20 knots of wind come with strong waves and rain during monsoon) to learn kiteboarding, the instructor will provide a smaller kite for your training based on your weight and skills.

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 will you 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 a trainer kite during your first kite lessons to practice kite control.

Kudat situated on the beautiful island of Borneo, Sabah is one of the thirteen states that Malaysia is made of and Sabah is the second largest state in Malaysia. It is also known as the Tip of Borneo and is located in the upper north of the Malaysian state of Sabah.

Kudat is about
190 kilometers north of Kota Kinabalu town and takes approximately 3 hours of road journey per way by our transport. We can pick you up at Kota Kinabalu (BKI) Airport or at Kota Kinabalu town hotel.

Sipadan, Manukan, and Gaya are likely to come to mind when you think of a beach holiday in Sabah. Kudat is well-known for its remote beaches, which are among the most pristine in Sabah, with white sands, crystal blue seas, and a tranquil view without anyone in sight. There are just a few resorts on Kalampunian Beach, and meals will be served by the resort due to a lack of shops.

It’s the perfect place for the beachgoer who wants to just enjoy what the sea has to offer like
