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.

Kiteboarding Western Australia was invited by the City of Cockburn in June as a key stakeholder to review a proposal to establish a Fairy Tern nesting site at Wapet Groyne, Woodman Point. The initial proposal put forward by the City of Cockburn included the establishment of an exclusion zone of 100m around Wapet Groyne by installing buoys and fencing.After a number of meetings with Cockburn Council, KWA was able to negotiate a smaller exclusion zone that will protect the fairy terns nesting areas whilst lessening the impact to kiteboarders. The original 100m exclusion zone has been significantly reduced to 30-50m . The buoys will be in the water all year round however the kiteboarding exclusion zone will only be in place from the 30th of September to the 31st of January❗Kiteboarding WA's preferred position with regards to location of buoys was to move the north-eastern buoy a further 15m inwards to allow maximum use of the northern "beach 3" kiteboarding spot. The City of Cockburn outlined that the 30m zoning was the minimum distance required to reduce the likelihood of kiteboarders and kites impacting on shorebirds and that this was in line with Birdlife, CCWA and other bird researchers advice.As ambassadors for the sport, KWA’s role is to ensure that future generations have the same kiteboarding experiences we do. To achieve this, it is paramount to apply safe, responsible and appropriate kiting practices to minimise the risk of impact on the environment and negative attention to the sport. We believe that when appropriate kiting practices are applied, kiteboarding doesn't leave any impact or trace on the environment. Therefore, the kiteboarding community's awareness on the restrictions and its partnership in protecting WA’s Fairy Terns is appreciated.To read more about this please visit: kiteboardingwa.org.au/important-information-with-regards-to-the-exclusion-zone-at-woodman-point/ ...
