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.


Unique Holiday Fun!

Kitesurfing is one of the world’s fastest-growing adrenaline sports and will make its first appearance at the 2024 Olympic Games. So, why not get in on the action and have a go? Our 1-hour Kitesurfing Experience lesson is perfect for families who want to experience something new while on holiday, or for anyone who would love to see what the excitement is all about!

Play with a trainer kite on the beautiful “Kite Beach”. Watch it dip and loop and fly! Learn how to generate power as you maneuver the kite through the wind window.  With kite flying skills under your belt, you will be able to progress to a power kite much sooner!

A trainer kite is a small, lightweight kite designed to be used as a training aid for learning to kitesurf. They are safer and easier to fly than a power kite and are a great tool in teaching basic kite flying skills and techniques. A trainer kite typically has two or three lines, and is controlled using a bar or handles.

Yes! Playing with a trainer kite is a safe and fun activity, suitable for the whole family. However, we do recommend kids be at least 8 years old.

Learning how to fly a trainer kite is safe and easy! And it’s a great first step to learning how to kitesurf!
