The Cocos Keeling Islands have a reputation for being one of the best locations for kitesurfing in the world.

  • The waist-deep, warm, flat waters of the Cocos Islands make it the perfect place for beginners and experienced riders alike.
  • The trade winds come through from July through to October, creating the ideal environment for any kind of wind and water-related activities.
  • Kitesurfing is relatively easy, but it does take a bit of time to pick up.
  • Zephyr Kite tours are the only kite school operator on the islands. They will give you all the support you need, so you can maximise your time in the water.
