Wind is gone now till July/August when westerlies will start, seabreases won't come again till September. You might get the occasional blow during winter but nothing like summer. North Qld is the place to be during winter.

Problem for us up here in Townsville, it's Land Kiting wind. Too Southerly.

So here's a preamble...courtesy of Abe my Turkish mate Allahu Akbar



And for an even balance...

Where to kite in gold coast area in westerlies? Or are just talking about non-kiteable wind?

Any wind in Townsville this weekend???
It's been forecast with green arrows the last couple of days, but nothing worth pumping up the 12m for.

Nothing much yet.
If it's Southerly go South to catch any. If it's Northerly, go North but if it's East to North East, we stay put.
Weird place this.
