About Us

We work hard to be different. We care about the sport of kiteboarding, foiling and wind winging that gives us so much enjoyment in our lives. Being able to share that stoke with our customers is what drives us day in, day out.

We believe that being passionate kiters makes us a step above the rest. We've teamed up with what can only be described as the best brands in the industry to bring you a product line up that will fill every daydream you've ever had. Add to that a group of team riders pushing the limits on the water and we truely are "owned and driven by riders".

Nestled on the beach at Safety Bay, arguably one of the best flat water kiteboarding locations in the world, we bring the world of kiteboarding to you. With a seasonal visitor list boasting more freestyle kiteboard world champions than we can count, and the sparkling waters of the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park as our playground, this is something special that you will not want to miss. Welcome to WA SURF.
