Lancelin Lagoon (WA, Australia)
For those that love flat-water-blasting, the Lancelin Lagoon located in Lancelin is ideal for windsurfers and kitesurfers.
Expect screaming runs up-and-down the lagoon with the opportunity to hit a wave at either end of the lagoon.
Crystal-clear, turquoise blue water which is ideal for beginners, freestylers, freeride and slalom sailors. Due to the shallow waters and the reef, foiling is not recommended.
The shallow water also makes it the perfect for the kiteboarding lessons or a freestyle practice session.
The closer you get to Edward Island the flatter the water becomes.
The best time to visit Lancelin for windsurfing or kitesurfing is during the Australian summer, which typically occurs from December to February. During these months, Lancelin experiences more consistent winds (typically 20 – 25 knots) and warmer temperatures, creating ideal conditions. The prevailing winds in the region are generally from the southwest, providing good cross-shore winds.
Outside of December through February, good conditions can be had from November through to March. Typically you will get wind 6 out of 7 days during the peak period.
Access & Launching
For windsurfers, there is a nice grassy rigging area located in front of the Lancelin Caravan Park at the end of Hopkins street. Here you will also find a public BBQ, shelter area and toilets.
For beginner windsurfers, launch at North Point, opposite Lancelin island where you will find clear water with no cray boats.
For kites, you must not use the windsurfing area or swimming area. Kites launch from Edward Island Point which has a nice big sandy beach to rig and launch from. If you have a 4WD you can drive right on to the beach otherwise it is just a short walk from the car park.
Watch out for the reef though as it could stick out the water when the tides are low and water shallow.
Also be aware of blue bottle jellyfish that appear at some points during summer that can give off a bit of a sting but are not deadly.
Sharks are not generally a problem in this area.
