Hello, from Normandy (north-west of France),
I will come next month to Adelaide for 2 weeks (for a business travel) and I will come again in the next months/years.
I will use my free time to visit Adelaide and the surrounding aeras. But, as an addict windsurfer, I cannot resist the call of the wind (even more if the place is sunny and the sea is warm).
I fund an interesting post in this forum about the spots around Adelaide (www.seabreeze.com.au/forums/Windsurfing/South-Australia/Windsurfing-Spots-Adelaide?page=1) but no information about gear rental.
Do you know where I can find a windsurfing school/shop/rental service?
Do you a website with some more information: spots, to know who goes where...
I am looking for any kind of conditions (and gear): I usually practise foil, slalom-speed and (occasionally) waves.
In any case, I am really impatient to discover this place more than 16.400km distant from my home spot (www.normandie-windsurf.fr/spots/nord-cotentin/collignon/)
Thanks.

We might have a bit of gear you can jump
on, when are you here?

no shops renting gear in Adelaide unfortunately, but lots of friendly locals that can help out ;)

thanks for your proposition and the friendly welcome.
I will be in Adelaide from the 3rd to the 15th of February and very excited to meet windsurfers from the "other side of the earth" ;-)

Worth hiring a car if u can... I can help out with gear if you go to North Haven on a late afternoon sea breeze...

I am now back in France after a 2 weeks in Adelaide. It was a great stay and even if I was there to work, I found free time to discover a part of the region.
I had also the opportunity to windsurf twice in North Haven. Many thanks to gmitton who lend me some gear. I discovered a spot where I would like to windsurf more often: hot water, great wind, sun, good waves. I would like to windsurf here every day.
But the reality is different and I will go back to my home spot in the next days. It is a good one but colder (less than 10? for air and water), without sun.
It was a pleasure to meet some of you and for sure, I will be back in Adelaide in the next months to return in the water and discover some other places around the city.

It was nice to meet you and have a good sail at North Haven with an unusually warm seabreeze ... but you will definitely need the wetsuit on your next trip :)

Hi All,

My boyfriend and I will be visiting Adelaide from the end of august till the end of december this year. I will be working at the university, my boyfriend is looking to do some temporary work and sailing courses. We are both windsurfers and we would like to get on the water as often as possible in our free time. Can anyone help us finding some gear? Is rental an option? I've read something on this forum about buying gear and then selling it when we leave?

(we are looking for some wave/freeride gear, not too big) :)

Flying our gear with us is way too expensive :(

Thanks!

Hey Soto. Be in touch when you are back, although we are moving more into pure wave sailing and further away from the local beaches now...
