Tasmania / Friendly Beaches , Australia

The water can range from flat with a little chop to 6ft surf but usually in summer NE sea breezes when it is best it is in the 1-3ft range and from the NE. Tide does not effect it as it is not big. Waves are clean as wind is perfect sideshore. The water is very clear. It is part of the Freycinet National Park you can drive to a car park right on the beach and rig on the beach. Sand is soft and white. Launch is easy but wind can be a little lighter on shore. A few shells and dried kelp seaweed on beach to be clear of but not much. NE sea breezes are the best can be from 10 knots but usually in summer (December to March) 20-30 knots 3-4 days a week. This direction is really steady and strong and perfect sideshore on port tack with great waves. You can also kite here in SE and Southerly wind but it is not as consistent. December to April is best for NE sea breeze very regular. Winter is mainly offshore westerlies can be very good surf then and you can kite in Coles Bay only 20km away in Westerlies.
