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.

⛈️ As squally showers and thunderstorms are still expected today from Albany to Perth, it is a timely reminder to practice safe kiting depending on conditions and experience levels. Kitesurfing storm fronts can provide you with good sessions in the off-season, but great caution is needed. Storm are usually accompanied by rain, cold temperatures and very variable wind conditions. Kitesurfing storm fronts and winter winds is for strong intermediate or advanced riders only. It is definitely not for beginners. If in doubt, DON’T go out.#kiteboardingwa ... See MoreSee Less
