windstoked wrote:Thanks, Sloughslut. Kiting Montezuma Slough might not be a first after all. If you can kite there and back from Sherman, it makes that downwinder a bit anticlimactic also.
Any other good ideas for a downwinder in the Delta?


Crissy to Rio Vista... oh wait Greg already did that!

That about covers the delta.

I want to go from Ocean Beach to the Highway 5 overpass near Sacramento. it is possible.

Sounds epic, kitenaked: Benicia-Buckler-Sherman. We're in!
Plan it for an ebb tide so the swell is good and the ride lasts longer, then hope the wind cooperates.

While we are being silly, why not Bodega to Pismo?

Collinsville Launch?

F it. I'm rigging up right now and heading for La Ventana. If I leave Santa Cruz now I'll be there in time to see 'yall there in January. The sea of cortez upwind run will be a little tough but everything else is downwind.

It's pretty simple you guys. If ya want to do the down winder from grizzly bay just get 4 confident kiters that can pitch in some money for fuel and contact him. There's still a lot to be discovered out there. Kiting is free but getting to your launch isn't :). Yes I've done it and I'll do it again :)
