Any one riding tomorrow? I'll be way over powered on my 11 so it would be nice to have someone else nearby;-) experienced rider who is used to some pretty crazy conditions.

This is good news, seems like we can get a bit of a beginners group together.

Will keep an eye on the wind and hopefully we can get out sometime soon.

cheers!

It can be, but not very predictable.
Cross on waves, light sea breezes, or frontal westerlies and northerkies are also an option.
The sydney to hobart yatch race regulalry gets dull drums half way through, but also can have 30+ knots for 4 days.

From hobart there are a wide range of beaches availble, including marion near the falls festival

Gday, have had a lesson and bought some gear off Pete around the end of 2017 (i think) and went to cremorne lagoon a couple of times last summer. Pretty time restricted with family etc but would like to join the whatsapp group to either get in the water with people or at least start to match up conditions with spots so I can get more educated! I tried Boltons Beach around NYE and struggled. Live in Kingston and as much as I'd love to use the local beach and BBay I reckon I need a lot more experience in easier spots.

Have Thursday 31st Jan free if there is any wind about.

Hi all,
I am a dedicated strapless kitesurfer from Germany and about to move to Hobart in March. Is there a committed wave scene in Hobart?
Cheers!

plenty of strapless guys here, and lots of us prefer sailing in the surf.

Awesome! Looking forward to meeting you guys at the beach. Is it just the surfspots around Hobart or do you target specific kitesurf wavespots?

cheers!

Both. Autumn can be quiet so better if you can move around. There's a lot of variety within 4 hrs drive so ideal for overnight trips.

Hi all,
looks like there is some easterly breeze coming tomorrow afternoon. Anyone going? What would be a good spot?
I'd prefer flat water or few chops.
cheers!

sure
just pm or post your number and you can be added

as for today, not much really to recommend,
On a decent SW we'd normally sail park beach, but unfortunately your a week too late
