Manureva Aquafest includes three days of kiteboarding action with Expression sessions, Twin-Tip Races and “Big Air” comp located on the stunning Motu Tavake. All categories are open to everyone and anyone who wants to compete or express themselves. We move the action back to mainland Aitutaki to spend a day at local schools sharing our passion for kitesurfing through our “Kite Kids” programme.


The stunning Aitutaki Village, Ootu Beach is our location for our Aquafest Day – this is a fun day with a festival atmosphere made up of swimming, SUP and oe vaka (traditional outrigger paddling) races set in the beautiful turquoise Aitutaki Lagoon. There’s something for everyone at the Aquafest Day with Manureva participants, supporters, tourists and local Aitutakians joining together to celebrate their love of the ocean.

We usually wrap up Manureva Aquafest with our traditional Cook Islands Closing Ceremony and Prize Giving including spectacular fire dancing and traditional food and crafts at a special Manureva Night Market.


We've got your details and we'll be in touch soon.
