Hampton Harbour is the main kite spot in Karratha in Summer when the wind direction is predominantly Westerly.

Most of the local kiters rig up on the Hampton Harbour oval and walk up the beach to start. For beginners it is recommended to rig up on the South/Western aspect of the bay as it does get gusty on the oval and there are some rocky hazards to pass on the walk up the beach.

The Kite spots around Karratha have a large tidal range. Beginners will find this spot easiest for practicing board skills with a tide between 1.5 and 3m.
