the closest bart station is mac arthur and there is a free shuttle from there to two blocks away from pt emery.

The traffic on the weekend to SF is horrible.

I was actually kidding about BART. I'd like to see any kiter get all of his stuff on the train before the door closes.

That stretch of I-80 has like an hour a day when it's not a parking lot. Like from 11:30 until 12:30, when there's no frickin wind.

Dewey, we should have checked out Lagoon Valley today. It was probably kiteable on your 16.

I took a train from my sister's house (about half KM form the train) to a beach 90 KM away. I was visiting and no one had a car for me. The best thing is that time is predictable and less than driving in traffic. You can also relax after getting worked out.

Took one kite, board, helmet, vest, but no wetsuit.

So its possible :)

Main reason I stopped riding motocross is the 80 miles drive to the track. It goes through every traffic jam in the bay area. And then there are the broken bones and the age, but lets forget about that. :)

I drove yesterday on the Frontage Rd and joggers were going faster than I was. Good motivation for me to keep biking to the beach.

Do you guys have modified "kid" trailers that you pull behind your bikes, or what? How the hell do you carry your board?

As I am new to this forum, I am just curious how my origional post went from a weather forcast to a discussion about traffic and using Bart.

Well at least it did not go to an argument about parking a trailer, dog owners and poo poo haters....
