K I T E S U R F I N G L O C A T I O N S - S.E. Q L D

400 Kms - Hervey Bay to NSW border (This Version 2012).

maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=216246232897544574554.0004ce1b19ac7c8f895da&msa=0

The information structure. (Tick in a box - turns references on/off) - Satellite view is best.

COLOUR Coding (as per NSW)
a) Green easy identified as beginner where sensible
b) Yellow intermediate
c) Red - warning, read for relevant details.

LOCATION
1) Direction: Range & if applicable best direction
2) Hazhards: objects & conditions (+ any financial!!)
3) Description: tips + good/bad points
4) Restrictions: (ignored if none)
5) Level: kite skills - re-enforce if conditions alter general approach.

Entry 5) for Level is conservative -- Match your skill to conditions, some days are terrific for 'P' platers in an intermediate area, and a great experience. This is totally dependent on the conditions.

Where to kite in SE QLD so many spots ,it really depends on your level , total beginner ( shallow flat water no crowds ) or wave chasing (head high waves cross-shore ) or dead flat super smooth water (free style ). Im at Noosa so my favourite spot is Noosa river mouth ,Lake weyba and Sunrise beach. But the whole coast is pretty good. Heres a few pics,
Lake Weyba,


Noosa River mouth



Sunrise Beach


Hope this is interesting

Noosa river mouth only works in North or North East with out going tide and its best at nearly full low tide
Lake Weyba is best in East but works SSW to ENE if you know where to go {down winder in SSW ]
Castaways Northerly right through to South
Hope this helps

Hi guys, I've moved to Brisbane a few weeks ago and it seems like a windy weekend ahead of us, is there any spot for Westerly around Brisbane? I don't mind driving farther away if I have to. I haven't had a chance to kite for months.

I came from Tassie so colder weather doesn't scare me, it's more like summer now for me actually.

Hi Salvatore
Not sure what you are using to access web - but the first post (Where to kite in SE QLD - has a hot link to google maps with all the sites - just go on and play :]) )..

If you are on a phone / small screen - U need to tap the writing at the bottom of the screen. Then the sites North to South..
then suggest tick the satellite view and then ... 44 more worth sampling to get an idea of the layout.

Essentially we face east so 90%+ sites take some sort of easterly.

The exceptions N 2 S... the links are part of the map...
Elliot Heads - a weekend camping trip 3+ hours north of Brisbane straight up the Bruce Hiway..
Inskip - camping or stay in Rainbow beach - this is one of the places 2 catch a barge for Fraser Island - need a 4WD to get to the end - but access to 90%of spit is ok for a car.

then more practical for this W/E
Southern end of Bribie island called Bongaree

In town - Wellington Point (Read comments - v.popular boaties parking / launch spot)
www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1TAirzud8RXT-EpLY_i6DZx9yuVQ& sa=0& tm_source=seabreeze.com.au& l=-27.457920497332488%2C153.242626111145& =14

Northern end of Gold Coast... near Sea World...
Site called The Red Barge - (never been but every where there is usable)
www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1TAirzud8RXT-EpLY_i6DZx9yuVQ& sa=0& tm_source=seabreeze.com.au& l=-27.949526000000024%2C153.421926& =14

There are others around the bay but these require a boat.. or a trip to North Straddie Island will get you to some..
Cheers
