AboutTrade winds blow at 12-25knots, untouched pristine wilderness, luxury island accommodation, a passionate and experienced team of tour guides and instructors. Need I say any more? The spots we visit are incredibly hard to access but thanks to the custom made high speed boats from Ocean Rafting we are able to kite and wing where very few people ever have. With an incredibly rare permit we are able to kite and wing at Hill Inlet, Whitehaven: one of the most special and most protected beach in Australia. Escape Eco Adventures was founded with one main goal in mind: take people on the most unforgettable trip of their lives. With 6 years of experience guiding groups through remote Japanese ski fields, Yann and Jordan decided it was time to take their passion to a tropical destination. ''I have had countless members of my groups over the years admit that the week they spent being guided with me was the best week of their entire life. When you hear things like that you know you might have the best job in the world'' - Yann A passion for extreme sport mixed with a deep love of nature is what has birthed this Whitsundays kitesurfing getaway. We will be teaming up with Ocean Rafting, an established adventure tour company based at Airlie Beach. Not only do they have all the local knowledge, and are keen kitesurfers and wingfoilers themselves, they also have incredibly powerful boats that get us to our spots with style. From the moment you hop off the mainland you will be completely looked after by our dedicated staff. If you happen to have any extra energy, there are many extra activities to try your hands at such as hiking, supping, kayaking, snorkelling and more! ''As much as I love kiting itself, it has to be the people who do it that make this my all time favourite sport. Moments spent kiting or winging with your mates in a beautiful spot, watching each other having the best time and cheering each other on is always a highlight in my life.'' - Jordan There is only one thing left to do: Enquire Now to ask us any questions you may have and reserve your spot.
