hey all,
here for my 2nd try at WA.
Last time I bought pole gear and kites, but enjoyed kiting so much I sold my poley gear.

This year I've got 3 weeks and a camper.
Looking to hit Exmouth, didn't get there last time.

Was planning on the midwest KiteFest, but that's off so I have no restrictions from today till 29 nov
Ive got my foil and OC Mako

Hoping to dial in the Foil int he mornings and some average surf in the arvos

Todays forecast says I should head south when I get to perth and setup at bunbury or margs.

What thoughts, whos around, where should I go ??
Help this Tasmanian whos coming out of the cold.

Well if its going to stay like that down there..plus the fact u prob need a wetsuit i would skip all that and go straight up..even sh bay u can do both..??
from where i am gently swaying on my hammock right now i have felt a lovely 'SW' for the last two hrs
....or just squabble round the pond or pt walter or do augusta and get 'lofted'
...or go out to an island..

There are still a fair whack of people that are heading up to Dongara for the Windfest dates, so its not a total loss if you head up there at that time. There will be more crew to do down winders and drink piss with.

head up north, lano, wedge, hangover bay, dongara, corro's, shark bay, exmouth.. its all there for ya!

Made Cervantes, thus looks good, maybe 2 nights here on the way up the coast.

I really enjoyed Corros last time

I think dongara tourist park

It's closest to south beach - it's in port Denison, 3km drive through down to dongara town centre

Looks like Central coast is going to stay off shore tomorrow.
Might make a lazy start on the trip to Exmouth or shark bay.
Any recommendations?

I stayed on that exact some site once. Set up mid morning in calm conditions and was 30kn by 3;00pm. Literally blew everything flat
Packed up and moved to one of the sites closer to the wall towards the left of this picture (67 I think). Still windy as F@#k but not direct hit. Got the same site booked for next weekend.
Lesson learnt. Site 69 is no fun when its windy.....same goes for the other 69...
