hi gang, apologies if this has been covered before, (I did do a search that didn't find much) but I'm wondering if there's any local knowledge on wind there early July? Should I bother packing my biggest kite? 10.

There is a reason surfers go north in winter. Less wind. Yes go large.

You'd have more chance at Exmouth or shark bay
being a peninsula you'll have a chance in the easterlies,
also if Perth's gonna get hit with a big nwester it's generally wicked kiting further north as it builds

Hi Unhooked,

Coral Bay and that whole stretch of coastline is extremely unreliable for wind in July. The morning often has moderate winds from the East, Occassionally you may get some light winds. A 17m kite is ideal. Not really a great kiting destination tbh.

Go further to Exmouth, at least you can ride the Easterlies on the Gulf side.

Thanks very much Darren, sounds like I'll leave the 10 at home and enjoy the beach with the family. Appreciate the info people. Enjoy the day. Peace
