Level Intermediate
Wind Direction NE through to NW. Best in N, always gusty in NW.
Location Seatoun is located within the Wellington harbour near the exit to Cook Strait.
The word: Best in North, busiest when not enough wind at Plimmerton, if the north is kicking in the Toun will be blowing the hardest

Setting up and Launch

Park up in the parking area at the end of Hector Street. Set-Up on the beach in front of the car park and to the east of the garages beside the park. Please do not set-up on the beach in front of the toilets, childrens playground or grass area (Churchill Park). Be very carefull leaving your kite or other gear near the waters edge. Launch and landing area is anywhere east of the garages and jet ski lane markers. Please do not launch or land in front of the childrens playground, park or anywhere west of the jet ski lane markers, the combination of narrow beach, busy park and power lines does not make for a safe launch landing area.

On the Water

The wind is always onshore to some degree and the beach shelves reasonably steeply at all times except low tide. This makes it difficult to get off the beach without good upwind ability. The water is generally choppy but no real swell. The chop creates great ramps to help boost big jumps. Please do not jump or jibe at speed within 50m of the shoreline. When coming into land, please approach slowly and under control.



Shipping Lanes

Inbound ships travel up the starboard (eastern) side of the channel, just to the west of the front lead light ( short white tower on four pile legs across the channel) and outward bound ships pass closer to Steeple Rock light (closest to the shore with the red stripe) All small boats (including windsurfers, kite surfers etc) need to keep well clear of shipping. The Captions and Pilots get very nervous when they see small craft ahead of them, even small craft travelling fast. It is advisable to pass astern of any shipping where possible.
