Anyone knows about them?
How are the conditions in terms of wind, seasons and launch areas?

My brother-n-law's father has a cabin up in oroville and we go up there for wakeboarding all the time most of the time the middle of the lake is blowing hard. havent yet kited there but will plan on it in the future. several areas on the east side of the lake where u could launch when the water is lower, but the RED mud on land there at oroville is really nasty dont want to drop your wet kite in it you wont be able to get the red out of the kite. some day i will plan on a boat launch from the middle, and ill give my opinions.
