Heading out in a little while and will definitely hit Silver Rock and LOng Bay, but would like to know if there are any other good kite spots I should try this year?

We'll also visit the soup bowl, not sure if we'll attempt to kite there. Probably just check out the surf scene.

Thanks

I asked some locals on my last trip and they almost always go to silver rock & said it's the best break.

soup bowl might be too on shore in any case.

Long Bay is nice and the best waves (when I was there) were upwind of Silver Rock - its shown on google maps as Womans Bay - just be careful as if anything goes wrong there are small cliffs and you have to go back to Silver Rock.

Forget Bathsheba/soup bowl for kiting - great waves, but too onshore and the locals/internationals in the line up are likely to throw their toys out of the pram if a kiter turned up. If you go out at Soup Bowl, make sure you adhere to surf etiquette and if in any doubt re your abilities go to the west near Tent Bay.

Thanks for the replies.

I kited at both Long beach and Silver Sands a lot last year, my pals want to explore new spots, so I just took a chance throwing out the question.

As for soup bowl, I'm sure the surfer won't mind giving up a few waves for us kiters…right.. :) Probably just grab a burger at the Round House spectate...
