Where and When to Surf

Postby TheGuest » Wed Jan 08, 2014 3:49 pm

Hi,

What kite sizes do you normally use in BayArea? I know it depends on the wind but what's the typical in winter and summer?

Where do you surf these days? When do we have enough wind in Alameda?

Thanks.

I think this question has been asking mutliple times so i am sure you can find more info by searching the forum.

Persnoally, I have 7, 9, 12 and 14m kites with surfboard, twinptips, skim and a race board. I kite on the ocean, crissy, san mateo, alameda, the delta and I am using all my equipment. I have different wetsuits too if you wanna get into that...

What I am saying is that the bay area is so diverse that you will typically find the right conditions for whatever equipment you have. In a nutshell you go-to kite size will vary based on the program you're after and your abilities.

Surfing in OB these days.
