Australia. . . Airline & kit?

Shoot the breeze and stay in the loop with the unhinged and unhooked word on the street.

Has anyone done the trip to Oz for a kiting holiday?

Thinking about going over to Perth, either the end of this year or early 2019 for a few weeks/month.

If you have done it recently, who did you fly with and how was the experience getting your kit over there?
It'll be me and the GF, she kites, so they'll be twice the amount of kit to take ;)

Clothing is the easy part, were not bothered about that, it's more Airlines and kit experience.

It's not set in stone, we're also thinking maybe Brazil. But Oz has always been on my list.

I've flown to Perth with both Emirates and Malaysian in the past and had no problem with a surfboard size bag, so long as it was within the weight limit

Not sure I'd do Perth now, as I understand that places like Safety Bay are manic these days

I’m here now :) I flew economy with Qatar they just said stuck within 30kg. I was slightly over and they didn’t bat an eyelid.

I rode safety bay. No more than 8 out and you could always get more room on the outside. Friendly bunch too.

If you’ve got time I’d recommend coming up to lancelin. It’s a epic spot!

Nice and warm Filthy? Unlike here at the moment ;)

Sea-breezes still working this time of year?

Yeah it was and yes it did. Lancelin was by far the best spot.
