Hi all

I'm a blow in from Melbourne (but don't hold that against me) - in Perth for a couple of weeks.

Looking for a few kite buddies to do downwinders around Perth. Have a large car that would prob take 4-5 people depending on gear.

Last time I was here I had a blast with the Upwinder bus crew, but looks like that is no longer operating. I hear there are a couple of FB pages operating, bit I can't seem to find them

Also in Margaret River for a few days, would also be great to hookup with anyone riding waves there.

Well. You might get a better tip from someone else but I've heard there's a slack app the down winder crew use. Maybe just go meet a few of them down at Trigg on a windy day, I think you need an invite to get on the app

I'll be in town until Jan 28, also looking for downwinders in the Perth Area (got a car, but a small one).

What ever happens to the Slack app threads? No activity on there for over 10 months?

Theres a great facebook messenger group called Perh Downwinders Trigg beach.

Just message when you can make it to Triggs south carpark, theres always someone looking for a buddy, throw you gear in their car and you're away to City beach. Also a great way to meet kiters.

But its a closed group. You need to ask your WA FB mates whos on it, and if they can invite you. If you cant sort it PM me.
