The west coast of Australia is filled with unique and untouched nature. Numerous sheltered, crystal clear shallow water bays and kitesurf spots with clean waves and a pleasant climate will make your holiday to something very special. With the van we head for different places and spots and besides kiting we want to take you to beautiful national parks, local markets and unique natural wonders. The safari is conducted by our professional VDWS licensed kitesurf instructor, who will accompany you throughout the trip, show you the different spots with their special features and provide you with valuable tips at any time. We will take you to the best bars in town, let you try local food and will have many surprises for you along the way.
To make sure you know exactly what to expect on your Wave Safari, you can take a look at the exact route below. Of course, it can be slightly different than planned. If we really like it in one place or if there is no wind in another place, we will adapt our destinations. The trip starts on the 17th of January until the 7th of February, though you can also arrive one or two days later, we'll wait for you in Perth until then!
With the plane, we land in Perth, the capital of the federal state of Western Australia. The first days we will relax and spend our first kitesurf sessions on the beautiful beaches of the city. We also show you the city center, take a trip to a local market and enjoy a beer on "The Island". In the first days, you can expect a real highlight when we start our Downwinder Tour from City Beach to Sorrento Beach. The scenic view during this tour is just incredible. End the day with a beautiful sunset and a cold drink.
On the fifth day, we get into the van for a 2-hour drive and head towards Lancelin. Lancelin is a sweet little fishing village with about 700 inhabitants and beautiful white sand dunes. Here you will find dreamlike spots with different conditions. Besides a shallow water spot with a huge standing area, you can take unique reef breaks with clean, long waves and really arrive in the kitesurf paradise Down Under.
From Lancelin we continue in the direction of Geraldton. On the way, we pass the beautiful Indian Ocean Drive, white sandy beaches, the bays and the dune landscapes of Nambung National Park covered with heather plants and small eucalyptus tree species. We can stop at "The Pinnacles Desert", the main attraction of the nature reserve. The Pinnacles are limestone formations and form a true natural wonder. At Jurien Bay we unpack the kitesurf boards and cruise from Booka Beach in fantastic turquoise blue water to Boullanger Island. In the shelter of the island, freestylers will find absolute dream conditions. In an incredible ambience, we enjoy a picnic on the beautiful island. We will spend the night here in very nice houses that are located in the middle of the dunes.
In Geraldton, we have something very special for you. In the small town, which lies right on the coast, we will settle down for some time and drive to different spots from here. At Coronation Beach, the absolute hotspot for wave kiting, a spectacular 6-day kite camp with our pro wave kiter Gabi Steindl awaits you. She will teach you how to wavekite, perform video analysis and boost your skills to a whole new level. Alternatively, you can do a jump training with our VDWS Teamer. In the surroundings of Geraldton, there are numerous spots which are ideal for all levels.
As an option, we keep an excursion to Kalbarri open, a small holiday resort on the coast. On the way there we stop at the unique Pink Lake, whose color is caused by algae. After that, we will head back to Perth with unforgettable memories.
