Kiteboarding Cocos (Keeling) Islands
Imagine! Crystal blue waters, beaming blue skies, sparkling white sand, thriving coral reefs, palm trees galore, a lagoon that goes on forever. Consistent trade winds with sunrise and sunset kite sessions, and no crowds. Welcome to the ultimate tropical climate, kiting destination.
During the Australian winter months (July - September inclusive), Ape X Kiteboarding operates out of the Cocos (Keeling) Islands.
Located in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the two atolls are about 2750 km NW of Perth.
On Main Island the beautiful Cocos Malay community are welcoming and invite you to explore their rich culture, heritage museum and fabulous food at their restaurant. On West Island, where only a handful of mettlesome west islanders offer tours, diving, arts, social fun and tourism.
West Island Watersports
The Watersports Hub on West Island, offers flat, waist-deep water and cross on-shore winds – providing a safe environment for all levels of kiteboarders.
For the more adventurous, there are many hidden sweet spots and playful waves to venture to. And if you’re in for a little leg burner, we can kite across the lagoon and its blue holes to Direction Island (named Australia’s #1 beach in 2017).
The locals and Ape X Kiteboarding invite you to come experience this secluded and niche paradise.
