Australian Kiteboarding & SUP.

Keep up to date with all events and offers here Facebook

Australian kiteboarding & Stand Up Paddle has grown into the most active and fastest growing kite and SUP retail shop in Perth.  We are forever expanding our range of products and services.  We have just taken on Fanatic as our Stand Up Paddle supplier after being more than impressed with their lineup, knowledge and quality after trying their range and meeting with their designer/shaper.  Talk about meticulous about product and design, they remind us of how we feel about our business.  LOL!

Australian Kiteboarding & SUP is dedicated to the water and the people who ride on and in it.  We bring to the shop only the best gear we can lay our hands on and then the thing needed to drive it;  mad passion for fun on the water.  Darren Marshall, the owner of AK&S is a keen waterman, and has been all his life, engaging in almost every water sport (water skiing, dinghy racing, ocean yacht racing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, freediving, spearfishing, surfing, SUPping, and underwater photography).  It's this enthusiasm for fun in the sun and the saltwater that we select our range of gear so that we can share our fun with you.  We have to be passionate about riding it or wearing it.  If we can't get excited about the gear we sell, what hope have you got?

For 2012, we have a huge range of new gear inbound from all of our suppliers as well heaps of fresh new products.  We can't wait until we are allowed to share pictures and info of the new gear.  Not long to wait! 

The new shop has been great and we feel well at home in Scarborough and it has been great being able to help guys and girls out of jams by lending pumps, fixing kites, sorting snapped lines all whilst the customers stand there dripping in their boardies whilst we fix the broken part.  Getting new customers into some sensational new gear has also been a great pleasure.  Ozone and North had a great year with some incredible new kites and boards like the Ozone Edge, C4, Catalyst and now the new Reo.  North came along with the new Rebel, Fuse and Vegas sporting the new D2 fabric.  New boards like the Cardboards Tempo and FR and North Whip and X-Ride have been amazing.

We are already busting at the seams after only 1 year into our lease and it looks as though we will need to move premises again, this time to find a larger space to accomodate our growing products and our SUP.  STOP PRESS: Our landlord has offered to enclose and secure the annexe of our store which will increase the shop floor space by more than 50 sq m.  No more need to move!  YAY!  This will allow us to be generous with ou space for SUP and all the new products that are in containers on ships as I write.  Looks like AKS will be in Scarborough for a few more years yet! 

It's all good and deifinately fun, so come on along on the 2012 ride and we may just have a few surprises for you in store and at the beach.  ;-)


Australian Kiteboarding and Stand Up Paddle Products....


Our new shop showcases our full range of products and equipment.  Being a passionate Kitesurfing Shop, we are so focused on kite related stuff to make sure we carry a huge range of all the stuff you might need.  We endeavour to keep stock of most sizes of kite, board or harness on display or at least in our store so you can walk out of the store with the choice of kite or board you wanted under your arm to take straight across to the beach and go play. Nothing more frustrating than having to wait for your latest purchase to arrive.

Our range of kites and SUP's come from strong, high quality brands with excellent back up such as Ozone, North, Core and Airush.  These four kite brands produce epic models such as Reo, C4, Catalyst, Zephyr, Rebel, Vegas, Fuse, GTS and Riot XR2, and many others .....

Our amazingly complete board range are supplied by Airush, North, Fanatic and Cardboards offering us legendary models such as Jaime Pro, X-Ride, Switch, Converse, WAM, Whip, Choptop, Tempo, FR, Tyro, Race LTD and so many more....

The diverse styles of our sport will be covered in store by stocking Race, Freeride, Freestyle, Wave and surf focused equipment.  Currently we have more than 50 kites to peruse and our board racks will be stocked with more than 30 different type and sizes of boards to suit every rider. We aim to keep most sizes in stock in most models, yes, this means we have a lot of stock on hand to make sure we can fill your needs immediately!

SUP is our newest passion and we will soon have a fantastic choice for SUPpers from beginner to advanced in flat water ocean waves and surf.  We will be stocking Fanatic Fly HRS, Allwave, Race and Wave Pro boards as well as a large selection of quality paddles and bags etc for the waterman in you.  We will be adding SUP classes and fitness training to our beach services to make sure you keep up to date with our goings on. on both Facebook and our new Blog.

We take pride in offering special service to the ladies of the sport with Perth's most complete range of harnesses for women from ION, Flying Objects, Pat Love and Maui Magic.  We also create custom boards for the ladies with smaller footstraps, narrower stance, custom flex, custom graphics and smaller sizes.  We offer two manufacturers which have kites most suited to ladies also.

Our two shops will stock plenty of demo equipment for both wave and freestyle/freeride.  We intend to keep a good range of wave boards in the Scarborough shop for demo in the waves across the road at Brighton and a large range of twin tips in the van at Pinnaroo where the locations allow testing in appropriate conditions.  You will be able to demo a surfboard then walk up the hill, cross the street and exchange it for something else and test back to back for a more true comparison.  Same at Pinnaroo where you can borrow and demo multiple boards. 

We are also going to remain on Pinnaroo Point for the convenience of our customers in the northern suburbs and our school will continue to run from Pinnaroo.

  You can follow our progress on Facebook here on a daily basis
