Port Phillip Bay / Gnotuk Avenue or Aspendale , Australia

Flater on the low tide because of a sandbar about 30m from the shorline, occasionally get some 3" bay wind swell working on the bar and get deeper straight after the bar. Kiteable all tides but bet on the higher tide. The beach is fairly narrow, with a small area of grass and scrub separating the beach from houses. The sand is pretty clean, with few shells. Launching is relatively easy, however there is not much room for error with the houses being so close to the beach. While the beach is very long (several kilometers) with almost no rocks, Gnotuk Ave is popular as it has a large car park and a designated area for windsurfers so there are fewer swimmers than other parts of the beach (although still plenty). The wind in arvo sea breezes here is really consistent and the Southwesterlies that come in for a few days at a time tend too rock! Winds from the SW or NW are preferred, while onshore westerlies are okay. Northerlies are just slightly offshore. Sideshore: NNW and SSE.
