Victoria is the second-smallest state of Australia. It faces New South Wales to the north and Tasman Sea to the east. The unique combination of spectacular coastline, pristine beaches, numerous national parks, dense forests and mountains attract visitors all year long and offer a plethora of activities to sport lovers.

Melbourne, Victoria’s state capital and one of the most populous cities in Australia, lies on the Yarra River and around the shores of Port Phillip Bay. Altona is a western suburb of Melbourne at about 13 km/8 mi in the southwest of Melbourne’s CBD (Central Business District). Altona beach is an exposed beach break that provides with the right conditions for kite-surf. It is a popular kitesurfing spot, especially during summer due to the flat water at high tide.

The ideal area to launch is at the east end of the beach. The swell size starts working at less than 1 m/3 ft and holds up to 1 m/3 ft. The wind direction is from the southeast, southwest and south. The location is appropriate for beginners and advanced kiters alike. Altona beach is ultra crowded during weekends. Last but not least, explore the highlights of Melbourne and immerse yourself in the beauty of the city!!
