Cocos (Keeling) Islands issued in 2019 four stamps and a miniature sheet for the watersport on the island.
Windsurfing $1 viewtopic.php?f=2&t=11030&p=11712#p11712
Surfing $1 viewtopic.php?f=2&t=13881&p=15511&hilit=kite+surfing#p15511
Kite surfing $2: Kitesurfing is a recreation and a sport that involves using a power kite to pull the rider through the water on a small surfboard, a wakeboard, or a kiteboard.
Snorkeling $2. The stamp shows not a watercraft.

The two atolls and 27 small islands comprising the Cocos (Keeling) Islands lie 2,750 kilometres northwest of Perth in the remote Indian Ocean. The azure waters of this unspoilt tropical paradise are ideal for a variety of water sports. Propelled by favourable breezes and tradewinds, kitesurfers and windsurfers speed across the warm waters of the shallow lagoon. At “the Rip”, located at the southern tip of Direction Island, snorkellers can ride the currents amid an abundance of spectacular marine reef life. The waters of the small island, Pulu Maraya, which lies at the southern end of West Island also offer excellent snorkelling. The moderate waves at “the Spot”, on the ocean side of West Island, attract beginner surfers while more experienced surfers are drawn to the nearby location known as “the Shack”.
