Didn't know about this but a nice resource for Racetrack/ Emeryville.

Also heard a rumor from a windsurfing buddy about Kiters at Pt. Isabel...seems like a sketchy launch. Used to windsurf there but would be nervous about launching/landing a kite.

Anybody tried it?

Nice. The campus had an awesome one of the launch. What happened to that one?

Thanks! Have been riding a lot in the last two weeks at race track and I would venture a guess that the wind condition here would be similar to race track. This will be useful for checking on afternoon conditions!

Surprisingly the conditions can be very independent of each other. The wind "bends" depending on the tounge flow.

I'll be 54 years old next month... which means that nearly everything in my life depends on tongue flow!
