A Map of the Kite Spots in South East Queensland
Seabreeze.com.au Community member AquaPlow has put together an interactive map using Google Maps, with kite spots from Bundaberg to Burleigh Heads listed, ranked and described. The colour coding identifies whether the spot if suitable for beginners (green), ideal for intermediates (yellow) or not advisable (red), and most of the locations even list the wind directions which deliver great kiting conditions.
The map also has listed all of the patrolled sections of the beaches on the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast, which are of course no-go zones for kiteboarding. There’s downwinder routes indicating which direction to ride, and even all the kite shops in SE QLD marked!
