Btw, water quality sucks at Belmont even if you compare to the bay.
My favorite spot was HB, but restrictions apply,mspecially in summer.

The only funny logistic is that everything on the top of the site is specific to the Bay - logo, artwork, Schools, Sites, Classifieds and Cams, etc. That's all sitewide stuff, so I need to think about that. From that point, and for the ads too, there may be a point to mirror this site and it would be separate, but maybe use the same database, so users can interact cross-forum with logins, etc...


why not just change your header to include more geography? make the whole thing about California, or West Coast with two subforums: no-cal and so-cal. something like that...

i could not help to notice that the restrictions applying in SoCal sounds a little extremes.
Again, it come down to beeing cautious, but you can see windwsurfers and beach goers can live happily together ever after.

That's a good idea, would be easier... Which do you guys like better - westcoastkitesurfing.com or wc-kb.com (west coast kiteboarding)?

The Sites, Cams and Schools links on top can also be subdivided into N.Cal/S.Cal/Central also...

i like them both but i'm partial to westcoastkiteboarding as that term is more generic than kitesurfing and encompass both disciplines IMO

I have wc-kb.com but only problem is that the full name West Coast Kiteboarding is a kite school in San Diego and also has the domain westcoastkiteboarding.com

The NWkite forum is pretty active, so I doubt this expands past california. I would limit it to california.
