Sweet FA traffic on south straddie
For kite surfers, you can go across TOS and enjoy the nice waves just north of the bar (jetski's don't hang around there long). I havn't cruised the beach on a low tide, but i can tell you that the wind needs to be between SE and ENE, because the stradie islands curve around to the north and make things very unpleasant.
I kited half the length of south stradie a couple of xmas's ago, didnt see a single vehicle or ranger and only saw 6 people the entire length of the island...(people walking/fishing). I took a ferry from the broadwater marina which goes to couran cove, then navigated my way through the driveable tracks for about 15minutes through the scrub. No vehicles are allowed to be taken TO the island, but no one has said no buggies hey
I think most ferry's charge around $50 return, and camping is about the same per night peak season. Ideally, your best to do day trips with a mate who owns a boat if thats possible. Head up to the northern end of south straddie, kitesurf on the western site of the dunes for flat water (apparently that's THE spot to go but havn't done it myself yet!), and open slather on the eastern side for a buggy
Only dilemma would be
A.) securing the boat for hours on end as you enjoy the lush of kiting
B.) rangers wondering why an anchoured boat on the beach, and half a dozen kites are spread out around the joint
C.) adequate emergency supplies - beer, beer and beer.
PS: or you can just stay south, and kite at lennox/evans?
