Kiteboarding and Windsurfing in Fiji

Nananu-I-Ra is unofficially known as Fiji's most reliable and well-known windsurfing mecca and has consistant wind for a good portion of the year. It's this natural meteorological feature combined with a sandy shoreline that makes the Island a natural haven for windsurfers and kitesurfers alike.

Peak season is June to August, boasting consistant 15-30 knot south-easterly cross-shore trade winds. Expect 10-20 knot winds during the off season, which provide ideal conditions for beginners and great windsurfing conditions in the channel between the Fiji mainland (Viti Levu) and Nananu I Ra Island, and in many other spots around the island.

Never windsurfed or kiteboarded before? No worries, there are several providers on the island that offer lessons.
