Sunshine Coast (QLD, Australia)
Wing foiling, Kitesurfing & Windsurfing – Sunshine Coast, Queensland

It is a very popular area for wind sports all year round due to its warm tropical climate with temperatures rarely dipping below 20 degrees C. Combine this with sea water temperatures of 26 to 28 deg C during summer & 20 to 22 deg C in winter (and even warmer in its coastal lakes), it is very comfortable for sailing. Wetsuits are optional.
