We have had some epic storms in Melbourne during the last 2 weeks of June, including winds of over 50 knots. Such winds whip up huge waves in Port Phillip Bay, as you can see from the photo at Mornington Pier below.

If you are experienced, it is possible to get some kitesurfing in before or after big storm fronts, but over 40 knots (even with a small kite) can be very dangerous.
