Kiteboarding WA (KWA) is the official state sporting body for kiteboarding in Western Australia. Our mission is to promote safe kiteboarding practices to help maintain beach access across WA, along with encouraging participation and development in the sport by hosting events for our members and the West Australian community.

Why Join?

Your Kiteboarding WA membership encompasses $20m third party liability and extensive personal accident insurance provided by Kiteboarding Australia. KA have worked closely with the insurance broker, V-Insurance Group, to design the Kiteboarding Australia National Insurance Program.

Besides this, your membership helps support us in continuing to keep beach access to all kiteboarders in WA, advocate for you to receive adequate infrastructure to kite safely in your area, communicate with councils who have queries about kiteboarders and kiteboarding schools and if you’re the competitive type, you can enter into any Kiteboarding WA/Kiteboarding Australia sanctioned events.

Have you got girls who want to learn how to kite? 🏄🏼‍♀️ This weekend we are trialing a new initiative to gain some research for a new project we are developing behind the scenes! The project is focusing on introducing women and youths aged 12-17 years old into kiteboarding. This weekend we are looking for young girls aged between 10 -17 who would like to learn how to kite! We have limited spots with the hope to further develop and extend the scope of this project across WA next season. What it involves: ✔️5 sessions running from this Friday 26th until Monday and maybe a couple over the next few weeks depending on the wind. The plan is to start after school on Friday as a group and then assess availability, ages and levels to continue forward. As you progress the groups will get smaller. ✔️The camp is sponsored by KiteboardingWA however we are asking for a contribution of $150pp for the whole package. ✔️This is a beginners program and the kids will master the basics of kiteboarding plus advanced techniques to get them up and riding with a fully qualified KA School & woman Instructor (April @ ApeX)✔️It will be 5 x 2 hour sessions based at Melville. All girls group ages between 10-17 years old ✔️Following on from these sessions, at the beginning of next season we will arrange a catch up and fresher for the girls to continue their kite journey ✔️We strongly encourage participants to sign up for a KWA membership which provides the member with insurance, future KWA junior clinics and events kiteboardingwa.org.au/membership/✔️The girls will be asked to complete a survey upon completing the camp 🙂If you are interested, please get in touch with me as soon as possible, sorry for the short notice, these things just sometimes land in our lap! You can DM your number or send an email to social@kiteboardingwa.org.au 🙂🏄🏼‍♀️Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries Kiteboarding Australia ... See MoreSee Less
