G'day,
I'll soon be driving from Perth to Hobart via the SW coast of WA and beyond. Got 10 days for the trip so hoping to get some windsurfing in along the way. I've never windsurfed further south than Augusta, so will be in unchartered waters beyond the cape. What are the best/known spots for windsurfing along the way? At this stage I'm keen on doing overnighters in Denmark, Albany, Esperance then maybe even Cactus Beach in SA. Are there any secret/unheard of spots in between where the wind gets up and with camping options nearby? I'm comfortable in most conditions.

There are plenty of secret spots - That's why they're secret.
Esperance - Tick - One of the best spots in WA
The SA guys will know more on the West coast but Streaky Bay/Elliston etc.. are regularly posted

If the forecast is good Denmark isn't all that great when Albany is on (flat water) I used to sail from boat ramp called Poddy Shot where the wind came from the Ocean Beach direction. Flat runs across the inlet. From River Mouth CVP in a more Sthly sailing out into the open inlet, longer but got a little lumpy. But Albany boys might have more recent local knowledge

Sharky, you've got the right name to sail Cactus!
