Kitesurfing Augusta WA in surf and flatwater #570

Session 570. The first session of our kitesurfing trip to Western Australia. The out-of-season heatwave with very strong hot easterly winds over Perth and up as far as Geraldton (our planned destination) resulted in a very poor wind forecast for Geraldton so we changed our location to South West WA where the wind forecast was much better.

The most of the Vic crew assembled at Perth airport - Anthony, Mike, Garry, Tony, Tarren and myself - then drove from to near Bunbury to meet the Gaz and Adam from the WA crew.

Leigh and Dan arrived later and headed directly to Denmark WA.  We drove to Augusta for our first session. 

The wind was light - I was initially underpowered on my 12m kite but it picked up.

The waves were good and the flat water lagoon was a hoot.

Then it was a long drive to our accommodation in Denmark.
