Sydney Guys

Recommended Posts

Well guys it's that time of the year again when the beach winds return ....

hopefully without the rain which has been a problem the last few years.

 

Cronulla/Wanda beach great for SSE-Easterly winds, even southerly if you can buggy around the curve of the bay

Bonnie Vale Beach - near Bundeena, ENE to NNE winds need good low tides for beach width

Wyndang Beach again SSE to Easterly

7 MILE ... mmmmm 7 MILE .... light Southerly to NNE almost 180deg.

 

So keep an eye on the wind and tides and post an adventures you maybe interested in

there always plenty of keen followers.

 

 

Cheers :drinks:

It's in mine. We just need to confirm if we are meeting both days or just one? What's the suggested plan?

@jdhot put us on to http://wx.theshackbythebeach.com/wx/wxindex.php which is probably the best check on conditions for 7-mile.

For Sydney, seabreeze is pretty close to the mark most of the time.

Can't do this weekend but I'll be at Urunga from 23rd till 31st if anybody wants to catch up for a fly on those l-o-o-n-g North coast beaches.

Guys this is whats been happening in NSW for the last few years ... good tides, wind and rain ... however don't despear weather can change between now and Friday. I'm hoping so it's been nearly 12mths since my last buggy.

Shack on the beach prediction 

"Partly cloudy with afternoon showers or thunderstorms. High 28C. Winds SSE at 15 to 30 km/h. Chance of rain 40%"

Low tides is about 2.30, so beach is usable from 1pm

Good wind direction and strength, just depends on how early the rain will come in ... I'm going to seriously watch it.

      11am to 5pm on October 15 is the Harden Kite Festival.  Harden is situated in NSW about 100km North West of Canberra.  There are lots of events, market stalls and competitions planned for the day.  Website here: http://hardenkitefestival.org/  From the looks of Google maps it's a very open and large area to fly in and there appears to be more than enough room for some buggying or landboarding too.   
      I could be talked into a road trip.....

      Will be in Byron Bay during the first week in April to Kite Board.
       
      Any idea if the wind is predictable or consistent there? Is it Kiteable? Any info. on Byron Bay at all would be great!
       
      Thanks!
