Zephyr Tours has been operating kite lessons and kitesurfing tours on the Cocos (Keeling) Islands since 2005. With a strong connection to the islands and a commitment to continue to promote and support local tourism, Zephyr’s operations continue to grow and evolve. In addition to our amazing all-inclusive kitesurfing tours, and to meet the increasing demand for kitesurfing lessons, Zephyr Tours is stoked to now offer kitesurfing lessons in the Cocos (K) Islands.

With the winter trade winds blowing consistently from June through to October, and the water temperature a balmy 27C, the Cocos Islands is the perfect location to learn to kitesurf. While the southern winter is the best time to come to Cocos for kitesurfing, there is wind all year round. 

Whether you’re a complete beginner who’s never flown a kite, or want to learn how to nail your first backroll, we can help you progress faster and have you boosting higher in no time! Our supportive and patient instructors will adapt their teaching style to best suit your learning needs, and will always teach at a pace that works best for you.


To avoid disappointment and to help with scheduling lesson times, we recommend booking your kitesurfing lesson for your FIRST AVAILABLE DAY in Cocos. This will give us time to shuffle things around if needed according to the wind and tides.

Book a kite lesson package and get priority lesson times!

All lesson packages include complimentary transport from your accommodation to Kite Beach (7km) if required.
