New in SF

Postby benoit » Wed Sep 19, 2012 1:09 pm

Hello,
I'm a little frenchy that just move in SF ( Ortega et 22th).
I have no car so i think I'll kite at ocean beach, if you could give me some informations about the spot, it will be very cool.
I seek a second hand board (TT) too, cause i can't take mine.
If you have one or know where i could find one, please contact me. I need to kite :p.

See you soon on the spot.

There will be soon more french riders in san Francisco than Americans.
It's an invasion. ,.
OB is a tough spot, so unless you're an advanced rider I don't necessarily recommend it.
But a lot of fun once you get it dialed in.
No car? If you're here for a while you should pass your driver license and get zipcar until you can buy your own car (sunset should be easy to park).
See you on the water.
Kites: 2014 F-One Bandit VII: 12m, 10m and 8m. All pink/blue.
Board: 2014 F-One Spicy & 5'6 Fish.
Harness: Manera Exoharness.
Wetsuit: Underwave Sultan shortleg 4/3.

For the level i think it will not be a problem, but i wanted to know if there are particular stream on this post and/or particular danger ( rocks or wreck that we can't see but are just under ;), we have this kind of surprise in your spot so i prefer ask it ;) ).

Head down there and talk to some people; it's been on all day and just ask around and you'll get plenty of answers.
