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.

The Shire of Gingin were looking to close vehicular access to the Edwards Island Point for good at today's monthly shire meeting.

However, following a passionate presentation from LDCA member and local Lancelin resident, Tim Dawson and on the back of overwhelming public support for keeping the point open to cars, councillors today amended that motion.

In short, the beach will remain open to traffic from September to April which is when demand is at its peak and the beach is more accessible.

In the end, all voted in favour of the amendment except one of the local Lancelin councillors, Jan Court, who voted to close the beach.

This is a positive step forward for the town and those who pushed hard to retain access should feel proud of their efforts.
