Wind Surfing in The Chicken Shop Beach, Adelaide, South Australia Australia

Wind speed :
10-26 kn/18.5-48 kph
Adelaide, the liveliest city in Australia, is the capital of South Australia state and is situated on the Adelaide Plains and more specifically at the north side of Fleurieu Peninsula. The city is built next to Torrens River and is surrounded by the Mount Lofty Ranges and the Gulf St Vincent.

Adelaide is a popular destination for the lovers of windsurfing, offering a great number of beaches, suitable for this extreme sport. The Chicken Shop Beach, situated on the west side of the city, is one of the most popular ones amongst the local windsurfers especially during summertime.

The beach hosts the windiest sea-breezes in the whole coastline (10-26 kn/18.5-48 kph) and is therefore perfect for some good jumps. The winds are usually South-Easterlies, whereas the water can be choppy at times, due to the strong breezes.

Note: Be careful of the swimmers on lighter wind days.
