Last year we stayed at Walkers Rocks and loved it thought that was before we started kitesurfing, and I'm not sure what's the wind like there this time of the year.Now looking for beginner friendly (1 can stand up and ride, the other just starting) spot for 10 days starting around 27th of December. Looking at camping, doesn't have to be anything flashy and preferably not more than 2days driving from Melbourne. Any recommendations? Cheers
perfect for learning. shallow flat water. plus a caravan park on the beach
Whyalla is a comfortable 12 Hr drive from Melbourne plenty of wind Walkers Rocks is 3 hours across Peninsula and plenty of wind there this time of year. A road trip around the peninsula will take you past lots of suitable places. Only trouble for you would be lack of crowds and assistance.
We stopped in Whyalla on the way last year, and yes, looks like awesome place to kite but wasn't that great if there won't be any wind. There where people at Walkers every day last year, though no one kitting. I think i just want to go back there and looking for someone to confirm that it's a good place to kite :) Yes I do like SA!
Yes Walkers is a great place to kite this time of the year southerly seabreezes are common. 15+ . Check the forecast outas Whyalla can be a good stop over on your way through if there is southerly forecast.
Hi, was great to meet you yesterday.
A bit of bad news, someone has stolen my mounting board yesterday from camping. If you see it around please let me know.
Now it has ozone sticker at the front.
So we came to Whyalla for 3-4 days and left 10 days later! :) only 1 day with no wind!And we absolutely loved it! We will be back! :)
We tried to stop in Beachport but it wasn't nearly as good and we went straight home :)
Glad you guys enjoyed it. See you next summer
Great to hear. Glad you got your land board back also. Did you get Justine out on the kite?
She's still trying to get up, but not giving up :)
We are back.... :)
Or actually we are coming back. 28/12 - 8/1.
Anyone around that time?
