Hearsons Cove is one of the main kiting spots for Karratha kiters in the winter season when the wind direction is a predominant Easterly in the mornings. It's only a 20min drive from Karratha on the Burrup Peninsula.

This location does have a large tidal range, at low tide there can be a long walk out to the water which is worthwhile as you will find a flat kiting spot often all to yourself. At high tide the spot can be very choppy and there are usually a few more kiters in the water.

High tides are not suitable for beginners: Deep water, very choppy with dumping On-Shore waves and more traffic.

Low tides are ideal for beginners due to shallow water.

For Beginners practicing board skills it is easiest when the tide is 1.5 - 3m.

- Average water temperature: 26.39; Min: 24.1, Max 28.4.

- Average air temperature: Mean Min July:17

You will find a kitesurfing school and shop operating in the area: Karratha Kite School
