Car Hire

Western Australia being such a large state, you will probably need a car to do your wind-surfari.

Bayswater Car Rental

(contact details)is one car hire company that is currently providing cheap, reliable cars. They seem to have a lions share of the car rental market, and can provide a small car for about $28 / day. They do have an extra surcharge for over the busy Christmas period. They do not supply roof racks however, but these can be supplied by Surf Sail Australia.

Ace Car Rentals

Ace Car Rentals have a large fleet, and include vans and utes. This is an excellent organisation. You can organise your rental before your trip, and pick the car up at the airport. It is an excellent service. You need to book ahead however.

Their web page is is here.

Hertz Car Rentals

Another option, that will also provide accommodation, is to hire a camper-van. There are 2 and 4 wheel drive camper-vans for hire in and around Perth.

NOTE Note that it can be hazardous driving in the early morning and at dusk (and probably much of the night). The country roads can have Kangaroos on them. Some of these animals are quite large, and tend to jump out in front of passing vehicles. Hitting a 'roo can really mess your day.
