Any windsurfers around Denmark / Albany next couple of days? Keen for some local knowledge. A lot of SE looks onshore???

There's a great speed strip in the Albany harbour, SE is a good direction. Usual launch is from Harding road. But you need a weedy, the amount of rake needed depends on the tide. The weed is also abrasive it wears the leading edge fairly quickly.
There are a few locals sailing there.


From memory ocean beach Denmark should be onshore in a SE

Hi guys,
having wave gear only and I am looking forward to a session tomorrow morning. Don't know what's gonna come. Anyone having any ideas where to go in south westerly winds ? Would be awesome to get a suggestion. Just somewhere around Albany and Denmark

I'd try:

out the front of the torbay inlet mouth (near muttonbird island) need 4x4
maybe middelton beach albany no beach driving required
Parrys beach (will need 4x4) and will have to drive around the bay a fair distance

don't expect to have anyone else to sail with unless the albany boys are about.
good luck
