Kitesurfing in the Cook Islands

Both Rarotonga and Aitutaki are considered amongst the best kiteboarding locations in the world, offering up perfect conditions for kite lessons.

For lessons, boat transfers and rentals to the kiteboarding public, visit local IKO Certified operator KiteSUP in Rarotonga or Aitutaki Kite School in Aitutaki.

The trade winds passing through the Cook Islands between May to October, combined with the passing low pressure systems in the tropical belt, make for perfect kitesurfing conditions for all skill levels.

The crystal clear warm water and steady winds make Aitutaki lagoon a kiteboarder’s paradise. Conditions are suitable for any skill level, but some of the best kitesurfing in Aitutaki requires a boat transfer to nearby sandbars of Honeymoon Island and One Foot Island.

The Honeymoon Island sandbar provides an easy and safe environment to learn kitesurfing, while also catering to kiteboarders looking to improve their aerial skills.
