Hi everybody, I am fortunate to spend two months in Australia (January to March 2019) for work in Werribee and Melbourne ... I have chosen to live in Altona beach for kitesurfing. Unfortunately the baggage is very limited, and I'm not going to take my 3 kites .. Can someone tell me what the average wind conditions in summer on this spot, please? And also, do I have to enroll in an association to kiting on this spot?
Thank you in advance and see you soon!

12 meter or 10 depending on your weight. I am 85 K and use my 12 meter kite most of the time.
seabreeze starts at 2 pm then depending of weather can blow up to 9 pm but most of the time starts to lose the punch from 6 pm
cheers

No association required.
15 to 20 knots. 12m is my main kite at 85kg

+1 for the above, but I would highly recommend you wear booties out there, especially near the Apex Park end. Heaps and heaps of stingrays, urchins and sometimes blue-ringed octopuses.

I would suggest the 9m at your size unless you are riding a heavily rockered wake style board with boots and like riding extremely powered.
