Spot Description

If there was a kite heaven on earth, it might be Perth and it's surrounding beaches in Western Australia. Spoiled with sun, reliable wind stretched over the European winter months and the laid back downunder lifestyle, vibrant nightlife and the nearby hippie town Fremantle - there is little left to wish for. The summer seabreeze brings cross-onshore winds to most kite beaches and creates a perfectly safe environment to learn and improve your skills. You will have to make the tough choice between of flat water ponds, urban river spots, expansive beaches with shallow water or swell.
