After a season of 2-3 days per week at Sherman and 3rd, I'm feeling ready to hit Crissy before the season ends. I've been lurking in the forums and by the Crissy parking area recently, trying to figure out as much as I can before I go out. Could someone say what ideal conditions would be for an Intermediate kiter to experience Crissy for the first time?
So far, it's clear to me that you want to go out when it's ebbing (hopefully max ebb), between 3-6 pm, and when the iKite forecast is solid. Anything else I should know? For the record, I'm totally comfortable landing/launching, upwind, self rescue, jumping, toeside, etc (still working on the backroll though). Would be on a humungous 151 twintip, no directional yet, and yes I know I should get a radio, but I don't have one yet.
Also, would love to hook up with a Crissy regular this Thursday/Friday if anyone is down. I can provide the beer if you can make a call to the Coast Guard for me if I need it!
