Hi guy's,
Planning to come to Tassie (from WA) in January next year for a few (3) weeks. Will be hooking up the toy box and driving east then getting the spirit over early Jan 2019. Since I left Burnie in 1987 and have only been back by plane (not to windsurf) I was wondering what gear to bring if I was going to be mainly east/south east coast based during that time. What locations are vital to visit.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply Captain. I have Ben informed that this is not a windsurfing focused holiday (even though my wife windsurf) so as for conditions, free ride, bump & jump with the chance of a wave or two would be great.
What size gear is appropriate that time of year? Lucky enough to have a few wave boards (78 & 83 Ltr), Freestyle wave (94), freeride (111 - the wife's board) and a foil (hey, 2 of us windsurf). Sail size recommendations?

4.0 - 6.5 size sails. We get a mixed bag in January.
