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.

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.

𝐋𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐧 𝐖𝐢𝐧𝐝 𝐅𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐚𝐥 𝐔𝐩𝐝𝐚𝐭𝐞 Kiteboarding WA have received a number of enquiries following the recent announcement of the Lancelin Wind Festival and the exclusion of kites. KWA have reached out to the organisers to express their interest in adding Kiteboarding to the event with KWA’s support and resources. We have been informed the event is not the event that was previously held (Lancelin Ocean Classic), but a brand-new format started by volunteer windsurfers with the support of their sporting body, Windsurfing Western Australia. Each discipline that has been added to event is one that is covered under WWA insurance/Sailing Australia insurance. The organisers have stated, ‘A decision was made by the new Partnership to keep it simple in the inaugural year. Organising the event is a huge undertaking and a financial risk without the massive government sponsorship of the past. We have huge enthusiasm from WWA and Race director Patrik Windsurfing and more recently RPYC. We believe an event run by these enthusiastic Windsurfers will be more of a success, as they totally understand what they need to make it a success. By removing paid event organisers of the past, that may have had other priorities, and re-focusing on the needs of the competitors and volunteers, we should hopefully end up with a more successful event’. The organisers also stated the possibility of adding kiteboarding in the future. Kiteboarding WA fully understands the limited resources, restrictions and challenges, involved with organising a fully volunteer managed event, and understand the decision by the event organisers not to include kites in the inaugural event. We will keep in contact with the event organiser in the hope of adding kites in the near future.Rebecca Bury President ... See MoreSee Less
