Im looking to head to WA for 2 weeks - margaret river to lancelin, at the end of May for some surf and wind.

1) what are the conditions like in May, do you still gets consitant/good arvo wind 15-25 knots ?
2) what will the water temps be like, will a 2/3 mm wet suit cut it.
3) As I'm flying with kit, will an 85 Litre & 4.7/5.2/5.8 m (me 90 kg)combo cover most of the conditions for that time of year.
4) Any suggestions for cheap camper van hire?

Any other info and local knowledge would be greatly appaciated.

I can't comment on the Margs area, but May would have to be consistently the worst time of year for wind for Mandurah-Lancelin. You will be lucky if you get 10 knots and 1m swells (read as "flat").

Hate to break it to you

Try to delay your trip 6months.

Cheers, thanks for that.

I have been on the BOM site before but have never explored it, and didn't know about the monthly averages.

I might reconsider my destination or just head over for some waves.

Yeah, if you are coming here to windsurf in May, I suggest you bring your golf clubs.

It's also good weather for wakeboarding.

Sorry - November to Feb is what you want!

You could get waves around Margaret River, there's usually something breaking somewhere.
