Aussie Kite Spots - in and around Perth

Perth offers a wide variety of fun kite terrain, ranging from river spots in the city, super charged wave spots on the coast, and combo ocean / bay spots near Margaret River and Augusta. The slide show provides GPS traces of 4 spots, starting from a wide zoom and moving in to provide visibility into the launch angles and wind lines on the water. First is Leighton Beach, just outside Fremantle (SE of Perth), Second is Melville Beach in the city of Perth, Third is Finders Bay in Augusta, and fourth is Wedge Island north of Perth (just south of Cervantes). Enjoy!
