Coming to North Queensland in September 2020 for a month or two. Mostly looking at Port Douglas. What are the winds like that time of year? I have an 11, 9, 7 on a surfboard that I use in Squamish, BC, Canada. I'm a big guy. Will that cut it or do I need a foil or a bigger kite? Any info would be really appreciated.

Hey Henry, September is the tail end of the season up that way....that area gets solid Tradewinds from May through to September but have been there in the back end of August, and it's very patchy....

If you can (you have probably already booked accom?) try and head further south for kiting. Central coast from around Mackay all the way down the east coast would be a better option if your holiday permits. Anyway google Tradewinds in North Queensland and you will see what I mean. It's a beautiful part of the world if you don't get to kite, heaps to see and do...

Good luck and good winds
