Just been informed I will be flying to Darwin on Monday 4 March until after Easter for work. Looking forward to seeing Darwin cause I haven't been there before or know much about the place.
Would it be worth taking my gear over with me this time of year or would it be a waste of time?
Any information would be great,like places, conditions? Info on wind direction,which is good or bad?
Heard a few mixed reactions about Kiting in Darwin,like stingers an salt water crocs. Not worried about the crocs but will be concerned about the stingers.
next week is looking pretty good (for darwin), at this stage.
will be a bit of swell, and a medium westerly monsoonal flow.
probably 15 knots, possibly high teens...
dont bring anything smaller than a 12, or a 14 if you have one.
go to rapid creek or casuarina beach, and make yourself known...
after next week, is anyones guess, as the monsoon has been crap so far this year.
and yes, there is stingers... and crocs. bring beer.
Hi guys up there!
So the "sea wasp" = stingers ?!
,,, yeah, sea wasp is the same thing as stingers, or also know as 'box jellyfish" and they bloody hurt (got one on my foot two days ago)!
hey putez did you say orrr sh**t orrrr f**k . Have seen it before felt sorry for him . He must be really cutting it up by now . Great to see young ones kiting brings a whole lot of things to do with dads , aventure trips and downwinders .
ahhh they take after their Dads.... bless em... *cough cough*
Thanks T one and Robbie for the info. Will pack the 12m,it's my biggest kite.
Will be sure to bring beers and introduce myself. Hopefully see you on the beach sometime next week.
