Wellington Wing Foilers Location Guide, Balaena Bay
Wind conditions here are the same as Shark Bay but this location has more/better parking & rigging and has toilets/changing. Works in N to NW wind. The more North the cleaner the wind.
The Launch spot is sheltered so requires a swim out from the beach past the carpark to the wind line. Wind can be swirly and messy close to shore, but it’s less of a drive around than Shark Bay. Can work in S wind too but beware as its not far to the main harbour/shipping lanes if something goes wrong in a S wind.
OK for learners in a northerly direction (not southerly) just don’t go out too far until you can confidently go upwind.
