Cocos Islands Kitesurfing
Cocos Island kitesurfing is amongst some of the best in the world and with a high kiter to instructor ratio, you can be guaranteed to progress in your sport! Mix this with loads of adventure, island culture and good times and you have the perfect kitesurfing experience!
Our kitesurfing lessons on the Cocos Keeling Islands are held in small groups with experienced Kitesurfing Australia and IKO instructors and coaches, dedicated to you all day, every day. Our patience with beginners and the ability to push even the advanced kiters beyond their limits, ensures progression is fast, safe and enjoyable.
Safety is our highest priority, and with the only rescue boat in the lagoon for kitesurfing, you can feel confident in the knowledge you'll be looked after at all times.
Healthy meals and deluxe accommodation means you'll be well rested and nourished for your long, action-packed days on the water.
With so many tiny islands surrounding the most perfect flat water lagoon for kitesurfing, there is something for everyone here out on the Cocos Islands.
Watch pro riders Reno Romeu and Tom Hebert as they film the new Evo on location and get a little insight into how the Islands work.
For those who haven’t tried kitesurfing before, the Cocos is hands-down the easiest place to learn this thrilling sport that can take you anywhere around the world. On Cocos, you have all the time in the world to get comfortable with your equipment and the wind.
At the Zephyr HQ, you’ll have the luxury of being just a kite-lines length from the beach and under the forever watchful eyes of your full-time instructors. With plenty of room for body dragging, crashing, tangles, spills and then short runs, easy downwinders and freeriding, it’s the perfect learning ground to build confidence and practise in a safe location.
Once you've nailed your water starts, it’s a fast learning curve from here on in, especially with the consistent winds and your full-time coaches. It will be just days before our team will be encouraging you to load and pop, then back roll, maybe even kite loop!
The radio helmets and video feedback work a treat to fix any bad habits you’ve adopted, and they set you a stable platform for tricks and proper kite flying techniques.
For the more experienced riders, your coach will set you a new challenge, be it throwing down mega-loops or learning to ride a directional board. We're not scared of adventure so don’t be surprised if you're led on a huge kitesurfing odyssey upwind through the atoll, out to the waves then downwind to the coast road home again. We have so many locations and secret spots to choose from; you’ll never be bored with us as your kite tour guides.
Perfect for non-kiters
10 days is never enough to explore the breathtaking scenery on the Cocos Keeling Islands. You’ll be surprised by how many amazing things you can do without any resorts, shops or big tourist attractions. Relax under a palm tree or wade in the crystal-clear water with the tropical fish and sea turtles at Australia’s best beach on Direction Island.
Partners and mates can enjoy this holiday with you while you kitesurf in paradise.
We have three options for non-kiting friends or family (which can be added at checkout).
- Deluxe Non-Kiter – perfect for partners who want to experience the whole Island with you and the crew. This package includes everything but the kiting which is replaced with paddle boarding, fishing or other fun options that can be done with the kiters.
- Basic Non-Kiter – for partners wanting a more relaxing holiday reading a book, surfing or fishing and joining the crew for socials and non-kiting activities. Additionally the'll have access to all our beachside facilities and transport for functions.
