So just got back into the sport after a few years break. So where does everyone head to On central coast for a kite?

Thumbs Up

Umina Beach - SSW to SE (NE is possible in the channel for the thrill seekers). Waves are not generally large, but a 200m ride is an acceptable replacement, helpful locals
Toowoon Bay - Only ever kited here in a NE, (it is a very small area and prone to crowding)
Picnic Point (The Entrance) - SW to NW, super smooth and super shallow (think two inches), generally gusty
Canton Beach (Toukley) - SW (SE should work), quite smooth close to shore, super choppy 200m out (you can surf the chop on big days!!!)
Norah Head (Hargreaves Beach) - NE to E, an ocean side spot that is protected (mostly) by a rock reef. Can get a nice swell travelling through gap
Budgewoi/Hali - N/NE/E - a good flat water spot, can get gusty, deep enough for foiling (will often work when Norah says 6 knots)
Birdie Beach to Norah Head - NE (E to SE should work), excellent downwinder location, great waves, odd shark, dolphin, turtle (don't do it alone)
Caves Beach/Hams Beach - NE to SE, great wave location
Swansea Channel (Salts) - NE, best flat water spot I have tried, really consistent summer breeze when it blows
Swansea Co-Op - SSW to W, a good flat water spot, super shallow, wear booties for the razor fish
Squids @ Belmont - NW to W, a good flat water spot, super shallow, wear booties for the razor fish
Marmong Point - S/SE, a good flat water spot, can get gusty, deep enough for foiling
Redhead to Blacksmiths - NE (E to SE should work), excellent downwinder location, great waves, odd humongous shark
Nobbies - NE, great surf location and also good behind the rock reef
Birubi - SW, one of the few good surf locations on the east coast
