The city is built next to Torrens River and is surrounded by the Mount Lofty Ranges and the Gulf St Vincent. The climate is considered to be Mediterranean, with dry and hot summers when temperatures can reach up to 42°C/107.60°F, and humid and cool winters with frequent rainfalls.

Adelaide is a popular destination for the lovers of kitesurfing, offering a great number of beaches, suitable for this extreme sport. Largs Bay Sailing Club Beach, situated on the northwest side of the city, is one of the most popular ones, especially for the beginner/intermediate kitesurfer.

North-Easterlies to Northerlies are perfect for kitesurfing, since the clean airflow close to the beach provides uninterrupted winds (5-20 kn/9.2-37 kph). The water is generally shallow and not too choppy. The beach rarely gets crowded, which means you get plenty of space to launch your kite. Safe landings are almost guaranteed due to the curved shape of the beach.
